Celebrated Living Magazine

elebrated Living
, a magazine published by American Airlines for their First and Business Class customers, celebrated their 10 year anniversary Wednesday night at the Joule Hotel in Dallas.

At the invitation of Megan Broussard, F&FW contributor Rebecca Shivone Smith attended, with husband Britton, and made these observations on the food, the wine, the hotel and the magazine:

After attending the celebration of the 10 year anniversary of Celebrated Living I can definitely say that they can put together a first class party as well as a first class magazine. The Fall 2009 edition of CL features a food and wine theme and touts Meryl Streep on the cover who recently starred in the “foodie” movie, Julie and Julia.

Master Chef Charlie Palmer
, of the Michelin-starred Aureole in New York, has recently opened a restaurant in the Joule Hotel in Dallas and was offering guests a range of delightful hor d'oeuvres paired with wines from around the country. He is featured in this issue of Celebrated Living and provided the party a perfectly enjoyable American epicurean experience . I enjoyed meeting and speaking with him -- and Charlie -- the quail legs were to die for, and I cannot wait to come by the restaurant and eat more of that delicious chocolate ganache espresso torte.

Brinton and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and look forward to flying first class with American -- maybe just to get the next edition of Celebrated Living!
The Fall Issue of CL has a "Food and Wine" focus and has many articles of interest for food lovers -- especially those that like to travel.

My favorite article: Ten Trends in Food.
Becca's favorite: West Coast Wine Weekends. "Enough to make me want to hop on a plane and head straight to Napa."

I think, it will take some time before paper becomes useless in this industry, contrary to popular speculations.
