  • Recurring daily

James Beard Foundation is having their 5th annual national epicurean Taste America® program, celebrating America’s culinary diversity. This year’s 10-city tour, Local Flavor from Coast to Coast, is the first to include Austin, TX, and will take place on November 3rd and 4th. In each city, two chefs – an All-Star paired with a Local Star chef – collaborate on a one-night-only, multi-course menu for A Night of Culinary Stars benefit dinner, a one-of-a-kind evening that begins with a walk-around tasting reception featuring an exciting line-up of notable local chefs. The James Beard Foundation is proud to donate a portion of each of the evening’s proceeds to the JBF Taste America Scholarship Fund. In each state where Taste America will be 10 recipients are receiving $2,500 each to further their culinary education. In addition to the benefit dinners in each city, the Taste America lineup of public programming for 2017 includes free in-store consumer events at Sur La Table® with celebrity chef appearances, cooking demos, book signings, tastings from local producers and artisans, as well as product demos and tastings from our national sponsors.
