Plans this weekend? If not then get ready for one of Los Angeles’ best food festivals, LA Times The Taste happening this Labor Day Weekend!
What makes this event so special? It’s an event that brings together LA’s best restaurants (both big and small) over the course of the weekend with FIVE different food events! Taking place at Paramount studios, enjoy amazing food & wine from some of your favorite restaurants, wine seminars, cooking demos, and great spirits!
Here’s a breakdown of the events!
Enjoy an opening night soirée mingling with The Times’ hosts along with many of the weekend’s participating chefs and bartenders. You’ll partake in a focused collection of tastings, distinctive cocktail and wine offerings. Some of my favorite restaurants like Otium, Mainland Poke, Lao Tao, ad Little Fatty!
An amazing selection of L.A. restaurants to prepare fresh-focused dishes using locally sourced ingredients. Join host LA Times food editor Amy Scattergood and co-host chef Sang Yoon (Lukshon/Father’s Office) in enjoying the brilliant flavors of seasonal cooking.
One of my favorites David Wang from Lao Tao will be doing a cooking demonstration at 1:15 pm!
A cocktail party on a Hollywood backlot! That’s exactly what our hosts — Jonathan Gold and Jenn Harris of the LA Times, and Antonia Lofaso and Marco A Ramos of Scopa Italian Roots, Black Market Liquor Bar and Antonia Lofaso Catering — have in store for you. You’ll enjoy innovative tastes from the city’s best restaurants, plus fine wines, beers and, of course, handcrafted cocktails.
Hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning food critic Jonathan Gold and chef Gilberto Cetina Jr. of Holbox and Chichen Itza, spend an evening exploring an eclectic collection of the city’s best restaurants — and see many of its most talked-about chefs — all without ever leaving the Paramount lot.
