Guests at This Exclusive L.A. Dinner Party Were Eating McDonald's Ingredients
L.A. Chef Neal Fraser Served Up Gourmet Food to Unaware Diners
May 26, 2016
When a bunch of guests rolled up to a smart L.A. dinner party earlier this year, they had no idea they would be eating ingredients from McDonald's restaurants.
PR agency Porter Novelli persuaded L.A. celebrity chef Neal Fraser, who runs Red Bird, to cook for the invitees, serving up soup made from guacamole, meatballs made from burger mince, a romaine salad, a chicken breast rolled in bacon and other mouthwatering-looking dishes. The film, which was just released this week, shows guests complimenting the chef and remarking on how delicious the food was. Only at the end is it revealed that McDonald's is behind it. The campaign is designed to change perceptions about McDonald's.
