Foodie Frenzy

| September 29, 2014 | Parties National

The streets of DTLA were taken over with some of the city’s most popular chefs and their delectable cuisine for the fourth annual Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival. Foodies gathered to attend an array of tasty events, from cooking demonstrations to seminars with their favorite celeb chefs. Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto’s chicken dumplings and Jet Tila’s five-spice pork belly tacos left patrons’ mouths watering at the Asian Night Market event. Meanwhile, chef duo Fabio Viviani and Ray Garcia’s mango chicharron chile relleno taco won $20,000 (which benefited the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank) in the first-ever Ultimate Bites of L.A. by Chase Sapphire Preferred competition. Attendees washed down the decadent dishes with cocktails by mixologist Mariena Mercer and reveled in a live performance by Grammy-winning artist Common. -Photography by Jake Ahles and Tomo Muscionico
