“The Taste” of SoCal

Los Angeles Times and SoCal chefs present a culinary taste

Summer is not just a time to go to the beach and hang out late, but also a time to chow down on creative seasonal creations. The Los Angeles Times and a group of Southern California chefs are helping diners to do just that by hosting “The Taste” during Labor Day weekend.

Times’ editors and culinary luminaries are partnering to host a weekend of events celebrating the summer season. Each of the five events will host culinary visionaries such as chef Ray Garcia of FIG Restaurant, who will be cooking with local, seasonal ingredients and The Beer Chicks, who will be pairing popular dishes with beers, cocktails, and wine. Each event costs $50 a head and supplement to the main festivities diners will have access to an unlimited tasting of over 40 of SoCal’s top restaurants.

And did we mention the event will be held at Paramount Picture Studios? Maybe you can do a little star spotting while sipping summer cocktails.
