L.A.’s finest food and drink was in the bright Hollywood spotlight this Labor Day weekend.  ‘The Taste,’ the fourth annual festival hosted by the Los Angeles Times, featured the City of Angels’ top cooking talent, as well as local wineries and branded spirits.

More than 10,000 patrons trekked their way through the back lots of internationally famous Paramount Studios, sampling complimentary five-star gourmet dishes from the scores of restaurants set up in individual booths at this massive block party setting.  Ample choices aplenty to wash down the aforementioned cuisine, with expensive wines and alt-fancy-spirits handed out as much and as often as was required.

Five events were held over the three-day celebration of L.A. culinary arts, hosted by the L.A. Times editorial staff, Russ Parsons, Jonathan Gold, Noelle Carter, Betty Hallock, and Jessica Gelt as well as local taste legends, Chefs Michael Cimarusti, Sang Yoon, Nancy Silverton, and Cocktail Chef Matthew Biancaniello.
