The James Beard Foundation is pleased to announce the third consecutive year of our Taste America®: “Local Flavor from Coast To Coast” national epicurean tour, which will visit ten American cities this fall. Spanning six weekends between September 18 and November 7, 2015, the program will stop in Boston, Charleston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New Orleans, Phoenix, San Francisco, and Seattle. Each city will enjoy a special evening that starts off with a walk-around tasting reception from a lineup of celebrated local chefs, followed by a one-of-a-kind, four-course dinner crafted in collaboration with a Taste America All-Star and a Local Star chef.

The Taste America 2015 program will send each All-Star on the road to host local events and act as ambassadors for JBF in participating cities.
