2013 LA Food & Wine – Lexus Grand Tasting

by Franklin on September 11, 2013

The LA Food and Wine Grand Tasting, to me, is the cream of the crop. Not only do you have some of the finest chefs showcasing their food, but there isn’t a theme attached to it. This means that chefs have free rein on what they want to cook. The 3rd Annual LA Food & Wine event was a success, and bring part of the Grand Tasting was a treat.

On August 25, 2013, 25 celebrity chefs whipped up some of their greatest creations at LA Center Studios. Foodies had a chance to also try 300 kinds of wines from some of the world’s most prestigious wineries. Walking around in the two adjacent rooms, filled with cold AC air, and some of greatest bites of food, the day of eating was a food blogger’s dream.

My Favorite of the day was Cliff’s Edge’s crispy pork belly. Roasted, or maybe fried to a crisp, the pork belly was garnished with a fish sauce concoction and edible flowers. It was quite delicious, and I had to go back for another. A close second, was their grilled peaches with goat cheese and almonds. The trio is a classic combo and was perfect for summer.

Walking around, eating delicious food and drinking endless amounts of wine sounds like fun. Well, it is! Trying out the Delta Air first class seats, getting into the new Lexus and snapping pictures between all that was tiring but fun. I guess it’s all in a day of a food blogger. Following this event was Duff Goldman’s cooking demo. Subsequently, following this post will be LA Food & Wine’s final event, Duff Goldman’s cooking demo.
