Los Angeles Food Event: LA Times The Taste

Mark your calendars for Labor Day weekend 2013!  The Los Angeles Times, The Taste Food and Wine event is scheduled for August 30-September 1.  If you are a food enthusiasts, I definitely recommend this event.  The best part about LA Times The Taste is the fact that you can enjoy over 100 food and spirits under one roof.

The event will feature five food events, top celebrity chefs, food columnist, top chefs and local restaurants.  In addition to food, the highly acclaimed event will also feature local bartenders and chefs from Southern California food scene.

I have attended the event and always walk away with a list of many favorite restaurants to visit.   It truly is the best way to taste Los Angeles area cuisine.  If this is your first time, I’d recommend the Field to Fork event which features local area sustainable food tasting, food preparation demonstrations and wine pairing class.   The event is made for foodies and home cooks.

If you want to make it a day trip, I recommend you also purchase a ticket for The Flavors of LA. The evening will feature the areas best cuisines, so you will want to make sure to attend at least two events.   If you are a foodie at heart like myself, I recommend you purchase tickets in advance to all the events you want to attend, book  a local hotel, take UBER  to the event.   The Los Angekes Food and Wine Event of the Year will feature five food events to choose from.  Check the details below for  a complete list of participating restaurants.

I can’t pick one particular event I prefer out of all the events because they are all include tastings from the areas best restaurants.  Tickets for the weekend pass have already sold-out!  Make sure to purchase your tickets so you don’t miss out.
