For the second year in a row, we're partnering with Chase Sapphire Preferred® Visa Signature® to present James Beard Foundation’s Taste America®: “Local Flavor from Coast To Coast,” a national epicurean tour that will celebrate America’s culinary diversity. From September 12 through October 25, 2014, the program will stop in ten cities over five weekends, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. Each city will enjoy a special evening that starts off with a walk-around tasting reception from a line-up of local chefs, followed by a one-night-only, collaborative four-course dinner crafted by a Taste America All-Star and a local celebrity chef. Tickets are on sale now at jbftasteamerica.org.
The Taste America tour will send the All-Stars and food celebrities on the road to host local events and act as ambassadors for JBF in participating cities. This year’s Taste America All-Stars are Grant Achatz, Daniel Boulud, Ludo Lefebvre, Barbara Lynch, Marc Murphy, Patrick O’Connell, Charles Phan, Paul Qui, Aarón Sánchez, and Sherry Yard.
