2018 All-Star Chefs

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

Stay tuned for more news on our 2018 All-Star lineup!
