Do you love food and wine? Then how about joining Los Angeles for The Taste – one of the best food and wine festivals in the city! Trust us, it’s worth the splurge as the weekend allows you to try some of the best food and wine while staying in Hollywood. The Taste takes place from Friday, August 29th through Sunday, August 31st. Tickets for individual events throughout the day can be purchased on the official website.
Opening night is a great opportunity to try a little something from L.A.’s hottest chefs. Walk around tasting varied foods, fantastic cocktails, and wine offerings all to the sound of live entertainment in the background. This is an event you won’t want to miss, but in order to maintain the event’s intimate feel, there are only a limited amount of tickets offered, so get yours today!
Although there will be various events held throughout the day, a favorite event is “Field to Fork,” which is hosted by Times’ food editor, Russ Parsons. During this event, various chefs will focus on creating foods that are grown locally with ingredients that are in season. These chefs will offer cooking techniques and tastings of their creations! Another highlight is “Dinner with a Twist,” hosted by Jonathan Gold, L.A. Times’ restaurant critic. Come out for a swanky cocktail party on Saturday night, and drink up while eating delectable dishes from top L.A. chefs.
After the cocktail party, enjoy brunch on Sunday. Kick back and let the professionals do the cooking, as they offer some of the most over-the-top breakfast and lunch foods that you’ve ever seen! The event is also open to children! Later in the day, go on a guided tour of the best restaurants in the city, and the best part? You don’t even have to leave the Paramount lot!
