Los Angeles Food and Wine Begins This Thursday, August 22 through Sunday, August 25

Los Angeles Food and Wine



Los Angeles Food and Wine returns this Thursday, August 22 and runs through Sunday, August 25.

The four-day food festival begins with several collaborative dinners on Thursday all over the city. I’m interested in the Kamayan dinner at Big Boi, the NOLJA! interactive food, art and music dinner or the Legends dinner with Chefs Nancy Silverton and Jeremiah Tower.

Then there are four Grand Tasting Events at Barker Hangar. It starts with the Epic Burger Throwdown with chef Alvin Cailan (Eggslut/ The Burger Show). There are two Grand Tasting Events on Saturday. The daytime one, LA’s Faves and Craves, is hosted by chef Jet Tila followed by the Great Steak and BBQ with chef Curtis Stone. There’s a brunch Grand Tasting hosted by chef Jermiah Tower.

Chef Nancy Silverton will host a separate brunch featuring the flavors of Baja at Osteria Mozza.

VIP tickets get you in 30 minutes early at the Grand Tasting events. It’s well worth it to get ahead of the crowds for all the delicious bites.

Besides the food, there’s plenty of good drinks and wine as well at the Grand Tastings. I love seeing all the liquor sponsor booths. They’re always fun and Instagram-worthy!

See you at LAFW!
