A national dining event celebrating your local restaurant community.

Taste America, presented by Capital One, is a nationwide initiative to bring together chefs, special guests, and diners from across the country to celebrate the local independent restaurants at the heart of our communities.

The dinner at Yangban Society will be an intimate gathering with a multi-course menu created by chefs Katianna and John Hong of Yangban Society in Los Angeles and chef Vaughn Good of Fox and Pearl in Kansas City, MO. The menu will reflect their signature styles and highlight the uniqueness of their restaurants and communities. The dinner will also include beverage pairings for each course.


Proceeds from your ticket directly support the local independent restaurants and chefs participating in the event. A portion of proceeds support JBF's national programming that is rooted in advocacy, racial equity, sustainability, and women's leadership for the culinary industry.
