Ali Larter

About

Ali Larter is a busy actress, well known for her roles on the NBC show Heroes and in movies such as Varsity Blues and Legally Blonde.  But when not on set, she is usually throwing a dinner party or entertaining at home.  In fact, Ali has been cooking and entertaining all her life, and in an instant, she can whip together a wonderful meal, whether it’s for a family Sunday brunch, a spontaneous Super Bowl party, or an elegant (but not stuffy) New Year Eve’s dinner.  Her parties seem effortless, but it hasn’t always been that easy for her.  Through the years of trial and error, Ali has learned that while looking effortless takes some effort, cooking is not about being perfect - it’s about having a great time!

Q and A

WHAT WOULD BE YOUR LAST MEAL?

Definitely start with fresh shucked oysters and a glass of sancerre. Followed by a packed charcuterie of fennel salami, saucisson, triple cream brie, manchego, and truffle cheese. For the entree, steak au poivre with St Emilion. Just give me chunks of dark chocolate for dessert. I know, I like to eat.

WHO IS YOUR ULTIMATE INSPIRATIONAL ENTERTAINER?

How can I not say Ina Garten, my first ever inspiration.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT?

Sunset Tower, amazing ambiance, beautiful city views, truffle fries, and Dimitri.

WHAT IS YOUR SIGNATURE, TO MAKE YOUR TABLE SPREAD?

Lipstick smudged champagne glasses, flowers in full bloom, and candles half burnt and dripping with wax. Nothing perfect.
