We're approaching the final weekend of James Beard Foundation’s Taste America®! Here's a preview of what we'll be up to in Boston, one of the tour's last stops.
On Friday, October 18, we're kicking off the festivities at the Boston Center for the Arts with "The Chefs Table", a multi-course meal that showcases Boston's top culinary talent, who will be joined by special guest and Taste America All-Star Michael Voltaggio.
On Saturday, we'll be at the Copley Place location of Sur La Table for a day of free cooking demos and local product tastings. Chef Voltaggio will lead off with a demonstration and book signing in Sur La Table’s kitchen, with a demo and signing by JBF Award–nominated pastry chef Joanne Chang to follow.
The James Beard Foundation is proud to donate a portion of Boston proceeds to Pine Street Inn, a local organization that runs shelters, job placement training, and street-outreach services.
James Beard Foundation’s Taste America® would not be possible without the generous support of our title sponsor, Chase Sapphire Preferred® Visa Signature®. We would also like to thank our retail partner, Sur La Table, our media partner, Every Day with Rachel Ray, andnational sponsors Breville, Delta Air Lines, The Gulf Oyster Industry Council, and Lurpak® butter.
