LOS ANGELES The Jordan Farmar Foundation raises money to send children in need to summer camp, so a recent fund-raiser for the charity took on a campgrounds vibe. Nathaniel Neubauer of Contemporary Catering designed a seven-course tasting menu of foods that put sophisticated twists on childhood classics. The sashimi course, for example, was inspired by fish sticks. Neubauer represented pizza with Manchego-and-chorizo flatbread. Because the foods didn't require much silverware to eat, guests only had forks; other cutlery was playfully suggested with colorful blue drawings on the place mats. Sterling Engagements produced the event, which took place February 7 at Gindling Hilltop Camp in Malibu.
