THE FOOD EVENT 2017

On Sunday, October 15th, Los Angeles magazine celebrated its 12th annual epicurean extravaganza.

 

Nearly 3,000 guests gathered at the scenic Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu to indulge in delectable tastings from 41 of L.A.’s top restaurants, hand-selected by our James Beard Award-winning editorial team. The samplings were complemented with wines from over 25 California vineyards as well as craft brews from Baja Brewing Company, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Mikkeller DTLA, and Peroni Nastro Azzurro.
