February 21, 2017
Chamber member Chef Peter Fehr from Gourmet Inspirations is hoofing his salted caramel whisky sauce to Los Angeles this weekend. He’ll be serving Hollywood’s stars (alongside GORP Clean Energy Bar’s Colleen Dyck) in the Celebrity Luxury Gifting Suite at the 89th Academy Awards.
“I’m just getting feedback from the press release now, while also coping with all the logistics,” said Fehr, who was approached by the company behind the gifting suite months ago. “It’s a little crazy, but very exciting.”

Over 150 celebrities who are attend the Academy Awards will arrive at the Luxury Gifting Suite on Saturday to taste Fehr’s gourmet sauces.  There will be opportunities for photos as well as the opportunity to connect with investors.

“We sent an invite to Ryan Gosling’s publicist,” says Fehr, who hopes Hollywood’s social media powerhouses give his own following a boost. “There’s no guarantee he’ll show up, but if he did – that would be perfect.”
