The Los Angeles Epicurean Festival brings together culinary specialties and extraordinary wines & spirits, under one roof in a casual setting. This years event will be held at the beautiful and historical Vibiana. Attendees will be able to pair and compare, taste and take home their favorite selections. Join us and discover over 500 boutique wines and spirits, cheeses, spices, coffee & teas, charcuterie, olive oils, mushrooms, organic chocolate, meat, fowl, fish and produce and much more. Each year a new selection of exhibitors are hand picked, in order to keep attendees abreast of new ideas in the market place.

This year's festival will be held during two sessions:

 

-The first session will be held from 3-6pm, and will include a wonderful lineup of events. Featured demonstrations from talented chefs, sommeliers, and mixologists will launch the afternoon session. Gourmet purveyors will educate attendees on the fabrication of their offerings while providing tastings. The Epicurean Cup features three teams of six contestants each. Together they must create a salad, main course and dessert from a mystery basket and pair these with a beverage. Celebrity judges will decide the winning pairings, including the best cocktail and the best dish overall. The winners will go home with the coveted Cup.


-The second session will be held from 7-10pm and will feature in addition, a DJ spinning late into the evening, while mixologists will shake to the music as they create sexy drinks for guests.

 

The 2012 LA Epicurean Festival is going to be an event you don't want to miss! There will be wine tastings, gourmet foods to sample, and the opportunity to learn about the upcoming trends in fine foods. Unleash your inner foodie!
