We all can agree that basically everyone is a #foodie. C’mon, who doesn’t like to eat?! It’s a great way to socialize, a fantastic opportunity to learn about different cultures and their cuisines, and when you’re bored, what else is there to do than eat?! That’s why the month of May is every #foodie’s dream come true as the renowned Los Angeles Times is back with its LA Food Bowl – a whole month full of food-inspired events that will get everyone’s taste buds going.
The highly-acclaimed Los Angeles Times presented a tasty preview on February 6, 2018 at the Otium in Downtown Los Angeles, California of its much-anticipated LA Food Bowl set to take place the entire month of May. Attendees were able to snack on some delicious treats in preparation for the big celebration of the LA Food Bowl in a couple of months. Dominique Ansel’s out of this world, mouth-watering cronut holes were all the rave and fulfilled everyone’s sweet tooth. Other incredible treats at the event included octopus tabbouleh, avocado beets with wild rice amaranth miso, roast lamb and cauliflower tacos, as well as some exquisite Prosecco to wine and dine with. It truly was a brilliant event and attendees can attest that after a day as splendid as that one, the LA Food Bowl can only promise even more excitement!
The LA Food Bowl has an endless amount of phenomenal events, panel discussions, chef collaborations and volunteer events that people can look forward to. The entire month of May will celebrate cuisines from all over the globe, recognize some of the most respected and admired chefs, many of whom will be making special and rare appearances at the LA Food Bowl, as well as other terrific food and drink-inspired events that you will never forget. Some of the many highlights from this year’s upcoming LA Food Bowl include the Night Market that will feature 50 food vendors, outdoor dining areas and entertainment in Grand Park from May 16th – May 20th. The Night Market was a big hit at last year’s LA Food Bowl and garnered over 45,000 attendees.
Other spectacular events to look forward to include the “Things In A Bowl” launch party which will also announce who will be presented with the Restaurant of the Year Award and the Gold Award. Last year’s Restaurant of the Year Award winner was Locol and the Gold Award was presented to Wolfgang Puck. Events including the “Changing the World Through The Power of Food” conversation, the “Outstanding in the Field” feasts, the “Scienceandfood” discussion at UCLA, the Food Tours of L.A., the Gold Film Festival, and the “Chef Showcase,” which is a one-day event with panels, demonstrations and tastings featuring leading chefs, are all events that you should mark down on your calendar and be sure to attend!
The best part about the remarkable LA Food Bowl, which will have over 250 events, is that it will also help bring awareness towards world hunger, food insecurity, food waste and sustainability.
The full line-up of the LA Food Bowl will be announced on March 31st at lafoodbowl.com. You don’t want to miss this month-long celebration dedicated to all food lovers. It will certainly be the trending topic here in LA.
