The James Beard Foundation’s “Taste America” returns to Los Angeles to celebrate and support our local restaurant community on October 18.

The 2020 incarnation of this gastronomic happening is a national virtual event. Angelenos, however, will have the opportunity to eat a special meal from Guelaguetza, the historic Koreatown restaurant hailed as ”the best Oaxacan restaurant in America” by Jonathan Gold.

The Taste America meal kit will also include dough wine’s Pinot Noir, Rabbit Hole whiskey, access to cooking demos, and the national broadcast for the James Beard Foundation.
