LA Times The Taste 2015 – Dinner With a Twist

by Franklin on September 17, 2015


Dinner with a Twist was the Saturday night event, and it had a lot more memorable bites and dishes. The flavors were a bit more packed and delicate. The night started around sunset and as night time set in, the event was packed!

Love and Salt’s grilled peach was stellar. The addition of dandelion greens and duck salami was great.

First bite for the night is ceviche! #TasteLA

Coni’seafood made a nice shrimp ceviche marinated in tamarind. The shrimp had a nice texture and flavor that was like no other.

The ricotta cavatelli with chianina beef was great. The sauce had a nice depth of flavor and was rich in flavor.

Scarpetta’s Tuna crudo with sea urchin sauce was a great bite. The addition of fried garlic and bonito gave it a nice delicate saltiness to the dish. The fish was very fresh and candy like.

The falafel taco from Top Chef’s Kasuji Tanabe was masterfully prepared. The falafel was crispy and full of deep flavors. I wasn’t a fan of the taco idea, but the taste was definitely there.

I just made sure the last thing I ate was the fresh made mozzarella from @pizzaprova #TasteLA

Provo Pizza was my all time favorite of the night. It wasn’t because of the pizza, but the mozzarella ball they gave out. It was warm, silky smooth and eating it was just pure pleasure.

Other notable dishes came from a plethora of chefs. Kris Morningstar of Terrine made a great salade landaise with foie gras torchon, gizzards, and shallot vinaigrette. The Raymond 1886 came out with a great scallop dish. I would say 10e Restaurant’s lamb chops were the star of the night. Everything just tasted better at night. Maybe it was the lack of heat and sun. The event at the night events were a lot more packed and lines were quite long. The Taste was such a fun event and always look forward to it every year!
