James Beard Foundation's Taste America® Los Angeles

In addition to New York City, our fourth weekend of James Beard Foundation's Taste America® made a stop in the dynamic city of Los Angeles. On Friday we enjoyed a spectacular meal prepared by local James Beard Award winners and Taste America All-Star Rick Bayless. We spent the next day at Sur La Table, watching cooking demonstrations by Bayless and Top Chef's Fabio Viviani and tasting samples from Bling Bling Dumpling, Coffee Commissary, Nary Dairy, and Mills + Company. 

We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all our LA participants! And stay tuned: the Taste America tour has one weekend left!


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.
