LAS VEGAS (September 5, 2019) – This month, The Bazaar by José Andrés launched its signature Dessert Graffiti at all locations including Bazaar Meat by José Andrés inside SAHARA Las Vegas.
Originally launched at the flagship Bazaar location in Beverly Hills, Dessert Graffiti is designed to be shared by four to six guests and is artfully presented tableside, featuring more than a dozen bites. “Our graffiti is like a canvas,” said Bazaar Beverly Hills Pastry Chef Mitzi Reyes. “They’re all going to be a little different depending on who makes it -- we each bring our own artistic perspective to the dessert.”
Dessert Graffiti combines the culinary and visual arts with philanthropy; each monthly iteration of the dessert is inspired by a different cause, with a portion of profits benefitting a corresponding charity. Previous partners in Beverly Hills have included the Wyland Foundation for the “Under the Sea” Dessert Graffiti board, a tableau of aquatic life in dessert form. Upcoming Dessert Graffiti offerings and partnerships will launch monthly and will be consistent across all three locations.
In September, all Bazaar locations will honor National Honey Month, collaborating with The Bee Informed Partnership. “Bee My Honey” will feature a tableside presentation of 15 honey-infused and honey-inspired desserts designed to illustrate the importance of the honey bee. Available all month long, a portion of the cost of each dessert will be donated to help increase awareness and understanding of the role that bees and honey play in our ecosystem, a cause particularly dear to Chef José’s heart.
