James Beard Foundation's Taste America® San Francisco

The third weekend of James Beard Foundation's Taste America® is a wrap! Last Friday our team headed to San Francisco, where we enjoyed a spectacular meal prepared by local James Beard Award winners and other top chefs from the Bay Area. On Saturday we went to Sur La Table to watch cooking demonstrations by Taste America All-Star Wylie Dufresne and JBF board chair and seasoned pastry chef Emily Luchetti.

We would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all our San Francisco participants! And don't forget: Taste America is still making stops in other cities.


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, and national sponsors Breville, Delta Air Lines, The Gulf Oyster Industry Council, and Lurpak® butter.
