Andrea Drummer is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and co-owner of Elevation VIP Co-op, a Los Angeles–based company that caters high-end, intimate dinner parties. Tonight’s theme is “Trashy to Classy,” and she’s created a menu that features the likes of pig's head terrine with tomato chutney, leeks and chili corn muffins. 

“Trashy to classy is kind of what’s happening on the scene right now, too,” Drummer explains. She’s referencing the fact that food items such as bone marrow have suddenly become luxury items, and thus skyrocketed in price, but she could just as easily be talking about another ingredient she favors: marijuana.
Since Elevation’s inception in 2012, Drummer has made a name for herself as the go-to private chef for cannabinated celebrities and other weed lovers with champagne tastes.
