The two will be celebrating Sommelier Ruben Morancy of Les Sommelier and Chef Keith Corbin, of LA’s eatery, Alta Adams, two highly accomplished men in the food and beverage Industry today!
Both Morancy and Corbin affiliated with the famed Alta Group, San Francisco Bay Area which cultivates an equitable environment that celebrates inclusivity and empowers rising-hospitality-talent while serving delicious food that brings communities together.
Ruben Morancy’s hardcore mission as founder of Les Sommelier is to cultivate relationships with lesser-known winemakers, iconic producers, and importers who define the art of wine. He positioned Les-Sommelier, to lead wine education to an increased segment of consumers, focusing mainly on underserved minority markets. Les Sommelier has created a vibrant, inclusive collaborative of experts that unfastens access to the most out-of-reach wines in the world through seminars and extraordinary food and wine experiences.
Chef Keith Corbin, an LA native, worked at LocoL ( which received Best Restaurant of the Year in 2017 by the LA Times) brain-child of Daniel Patterson and Roy Choi, both chefs were impressed with Corbin skills and work ethic they and gave him opportunities to work at their fine dining restaurants to gain experience on culinary development and rehabilitation back into mainstream society. This relationship led to them partnering with Corbin to open Alta Adams. Alta is one of the hottest new restaurants in LA and is being run and operated by formally incarcerated inmates that have reformed. Corbin’s distinct interpretation of soul food draws the connection between traditional West African food and California cuisine. Corbin now set to open an additional soul food and grains restaurant in Culver City, Ca early 2020.
Chef Gigi and guest co-host Chef Robert Edwards will be talking to both Morancy and Corbin, teamed up to produce a luxurious pop-up event via The Organizer, Les Sommeliers.
