LA Food Fest in the News

 

 
I HAD MADE A FEW NEW FRIENDS, MET A DOZEN FOOD BLOGGERS, EXCHANGED SOME BUSINESS CARDS AND ACQUIRED A REALLY FINE DUCK TACO WITH MANDARIN SEGMENTS. IT WAS THE LONGEST I HAVE EVER WAITED FOR FOOD IN MY LIFE. AND I’D DO IT AGAIN IN FLASH.

In the end, LA Food Fest worked with LA Kitchen and HealthRight 360 as well as several faith-based organizations that organized volunteers to transport leftover and unused food to nonprofits, which often lack the personnel to do that.

Perhaps best of all is the stark Mexican influence on this year’s festival. Jair Tellez from Laja outside Ensenada and Antonia de Livier from La Pagna del Impostor in Guadalajara, along with beers like Baja Brewing Company making an appearance.

 
There will be 65 street food vendors on hand, and due to the founders’ relationship with the Test Kitchen crew, attending chefs include participants like the Two Hot Tamales, The Great Ricardo Zarate, and L.A.’s obsession in Tijuana, Javier Plascencia.
 

SUMMER TASTING 2015

6th Annual at The Rose Bowl


 
The all-star cast of judges, which included Walter Manzke, Michael Voltaggio, Jonathan Gold, and our own dine editor Lesley Barger Suter, crowned the winners at the end of the night, leaving the other participants to console themselves with a Singha beer or a CoolHaus ice cream sandwich.
 


 
This festival set out to prove that street food is not going anywhere for a while…Well, I think it’s safe to say that the movement has reached a critical point where it has exited sub-culture and entered pop culture.
 

Summer Tasting 2013

4th Annual at The Rose Bowl

 
Now in it’s fourth year, the June 29 fest brings hidden gems and new concpets from all over the Southland to the Rose Bowl stadium for one massive day of feasting and drinking…

 
What was the biggest LA dining surprise of 2010? That the LA Street Food Fest turned a debacle in Febraury into a success by July.
