The Los Angeles Times’ The Taste is here again. If you are a foodie, you won’t want to miss this annual festival celebrating Southern California’s culinary scene.
Hosted by The Times’ acclaimed Food staff, The Taste will transform the Paramount Pictures Studios backlot into the ultimate evening foodie event which runs across three nights during Labor Day weekend (Aug. 30 to Sept. 1). 

The Taste will pay homage to the chefs and restaurants who have helped make Los Angeles one of the most exciting places in the world to eat. Admission to each of the three events includes unlimited tastings from the city’s best restaurants and sips of seasonal cocktails, plus cooking demos and talks from renowned chefs.

Los Angeles Times’ The Taste, presented by City National Bank, is produced in association with Best Events. The Collins College of Hospitality Management and L.A. Regional Food Bank are the event’s charity beneficiaries.
