Taste of Latin Food Fest
Chopped! judge Aarón Sánchez stirs carne asada in a crackling skillet. Food Network star Ingrid Hoffman discusses Latin food trends. This scene plays out right in front of adoring fans, and they didn't even have to sneak into their homes to see it. Instead, they've come to the four-day 2013 Latin Food Fest, which gathers these and scores of other chef personalities—including TV host Daisy Martinez and Baja culinary icon Misión 19 owner Javier Plascencia—for a celebration of Latin-American, Caribbean, and Spanish cuisines. Here, cooking demonstrations elucidate the method behind recipes while panel discussions delve into the history and trends of Latin food and drink. Chef-curated food samples, cookbook signings, and meals, such as Aarón Sánchez's Chefs' Night Out dinner, bring audiences face-to-face with many personalities' culinary techniques. In the world of drink, a sommelier showdown challenges experts to find the best pairings for their wines and then fire the corks at each other for points.
The Taste of Latin Food Fest will showcase more than 60 regional restaurants, wineries and chefs, establishments which will pair tapas-sized food samples with sips of unique Latin beers, wines, and spirits. Throughout the festival, dedicated pavilions focus on specific topics—ranging from a ceviche and tequila bar to an olive oil tasting tent to our Flavors of Baja Pavilion and even a BevMo! Lounge where staff hold blind tastings of mezcal and rum. In addition to the tastings, the festival also delights other senses with live music, an art show, and a silent auction for culinary supplies and memorabilia.
