The Taste of Venice
The Taste of Venice (formerly the Taste of Abbot Kinney) supports local nonprofit Inside Out Community Arts while celebrating the chefs that make this eclectic and cosmopolitan community their home. This afternoon event highlights Venice’s extraordinary culinary talent and features a unique restaurant walking/tasting tour where you can sample signature dishes from your favorite chefs as well as enjoy wine, beer and cocktail tastings. Highlights also include music, cooking demonstrations by favorite Venice chefs and special presentations by hosts Adam Gertler from The Food Network and Jet Tila from Iron Chef America during the VIP hour.
The Taste of Venice 2013 was held on November 3rd, 2013. Thank you to our generous sponsors, the participating restaurants, and all of our guests for a fantastic afternoon!
