Chef Wayne Elias and the company he co-owns, Crumble Catering, are preparing for several culinary treats during the upcoming awards season. The Hollywood chef will provide delicious accompaniment for Steven Tyler’s Grammy’s Viewing Party (Feb. 10) in support of Janie’s Fund and, for the 15th year running, the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscars Viewing Party (Feb. 25).
Both events will raise money for important causes and feature Elias’ creative touch.
The Oscars event will consist of approximately 1,000 meals and 150 workers from Crumble Catering, which Elias co-owns with his business partner, Chris Diamond. They also own the restaurant Rockwell: Table & Stage in Los Feliz, Los Angeles.
