2017 All-Star Chefs

The Taste America All-Stars serve as James Beard Foundation ambassadors, traveling to one of our host cities to collaborate with a Local Star chef on a one-of-a-kind, four-course dinner that benefits the Foundation. Following their dinner events, All-Stars also appear at select Sur La Table stores for free cooking demonstrations and book signings on Saturday mornings.
