Attention Foodies! It’s on. Get to The Taste this weekend for some of the best eats in LA. Taste sweet and savory bites, sip brews, bubbly, spirits and pick up top tips from celebrity chefs. Stand outs from this afternoon are the Mona Slider from Pono, Vranken Pommery’s Sparkling Raspberry wine and savory fresh fruit from Freshology. Come hungry and prepared to party.
Chef C.J. Jacobson, Girasol in Studio City, demonstrates the his penchant for foraged ingredients like Juniper and Blue Hyssop.
Oh, mercy! This little slider from Pono packed the flavor promised in this picture. Grass-fed beef, cheddar cheese and a Strawberry compote subbing (to great advantage) for ketchup, made this Mona Burger memorable!
Green Tea Red Bean Korean Brioche from the Ensaymada Project were offered up alongside their super popular Red Velvet Brioche and Maple Bacon, too.
Notable vegan Chef Tal Ronnen shares his recipe for Crab Cakes as served at Crossroads. Ronnen taps Garbonzo Beans and Hearts of Palm to step in for the traditional crabmeat.
