From the summer/fall 2014 issue of Carmel Magazine:

Gourmet Cuisine Joins World-Class Jazz

Attendees of the 57th Monterey Jazz Festival will find the gastronomic bar kicked up a few notches now that the festival has teamed with local superstar Chef Dory Ford and his catering company, Aqua Terra Culinary.

“Bringing Dory on board is part of our ongoing process to make the weekend a very comfortable and pleasing experience for our guests,” says Festival Managing Director Chris Doss. “We want to be the best festival in the country.”

In addition to catering the VIP areas, Aqua Terra will be running all the beverage bars on the grounds and is inaugurating a food concession area in the Pattee Arena itself.

“We’ll be giving the VIP experience to the general public,” Ford says. And he’s got Big Easy on his mind. “We’re planning to bring a little piece of Bourbon Street to the proceedings: Hurricanes, Muffuletta salad, Boudain balls, things you might see at the New Orleans Jazz Festival.”

Doss says these changes enhance the festival. “You’ve got top-of-the-line entertainment and amenities and now great food as well.”

Ford agrees. “We’re really excited about this,” he enthuses. “We can’t wait to be there and serve the Jazz Festival guests. Plus, we get to listen to some great music!”
