James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Preview: Los Angeles

 

We’re starting the second month of our national epicurean tour, James Beard Foundation’s Taste America® with a great lineup of events on the West Coast. This weekend we’re setting up shop in Los Angeles for two days of star-studded events featuring Taste America All-Star James Beard Award Winner Aarón Sánchez, and local star and James Beard Award Winner Nancy Silverton. Join us Friday for a reception featuring dishes from some of the city’s hottest chefs, followed by an exclusive, one-night-only four course dinner prepared by Sánchez and Silverton. Saturday the action moves to Sur La Table, for cooking demos and book signings from Sánchez and free tastings from local vendors Fallen Fruit from Rising Women and Pernicious Pickling Co.

Throwback Thursday: Holy Molé!

 

From tantalizing tacos al pastor to artisanal masa makeovers, a new wave of Mexican restaurants is hitting the dining landscape this fall. The trend has us thinking back to our Holy Molé event from the 2010 New York Food & Wine Festival dinner series at the Beard House. James Beard Foundation’s Taste America® All-Star and JBF Award winner Aarón Sánchez was one of several chefs on hand that night, treating diners to his signature style and seen here flipping some hominy for his pozole-calabaza picadillo.

 

Check out Aarón in action during his upcoming Taste America weekend in Los Angeles, taking place October 10–11. For tickets and more information, visit jbftasteamerica.org.
