James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Las Vegas

Our second weekend of James Beard Foundation's Taste America® also made a stop in Las Vegas. On Saturday we went to Sur la Table to see cooking demonstrations by Taste America All-Star Masaharu Morimoto (who also showed off his vocal talent) and JBF Award–winning pastry chef François Payard. Later that night we headed to the main pool at the Mirage for a walk-around tasting of food and drink prepared by local James Beard Award winners and other Sin City talent. Check out photos from the evening here.

We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all our Las Vegas participants! And don't forget: Taste America is stopping in plenty of other cities, too.


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.

Additional support for events in Las Vegas provided by: Southern Wine & Spirits Nevada, Bombay Sapphire, and Fiji Water.
