Taste of Venice
The Taste of Venice 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, special presentations and cooking demonstrations during the VIP hour featuring local celebrity chefs, such as Former Event Chair Joe Miller from Joe’s, VIP reception host Adam Gertler from The Food Network, Host Committee member Jet Tila from Iron Chef America, and Yoshi Shima from Shima.
The fifth annual Taste of Venice (formerly the Taste of Abbot Kinney) will be held on Sunday, October 27th, 2013!
