#TasteLA: Enjoying Field to Fork 2014


Lisa Ellen NiverThank you to the Los Angeles Times for inviting me to enjoy the Taste of Los Angeles 2014 as a member of the media. It is  “A FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL THAT’S AUTHENTICALLY L.A.” I went to Field to Fork on Saturday morning which was hosted by Russ Parsons & Nancy Silverton. “Indulge in the bounty of California with an afternoon inspired by locally sourced ingredients and the pleasures of seasonal cooking. Leading L.A. chefs specializing in fresh-focused dishes will share their techniques and offer tastes.”


From Eveleigh: I enjoyed albacore tartine on homemade bread! I cannot wait to taste more treats from this restaurant and sit in their outdoor patio and enjoy the garden.

Looking to never say PLAIN VANILLA ICE CREAM again?  Enjoy the single origin taste sensation that is Choctal. Their ice cream is  like traveling the world through the flavors! Order online or find it at Bristol Farms and select Whole Foods.

At BOA Steakhouse — Beef: It’s what’s for dinner! I enjoyed fresh NY steak with summer squash and chipotle lime corn from Chef JR. He is fantastic! I cannot wait to eat a whole meal there!

The BLVD in the Beverly Wilshire is on the top of my list! I met a food writer at The Taste who told me her top selection of the day was the creations from BLVD! I really enjoyed the marinated skirt steak. It sat on a bed of Japanese soba noodles salad with artichokes and shiitake mushrooms.

Wondering how to choose what to eat at Chipotle Mexican Grill? I absolutely loved the barbacoa taco with guacamole and chili corn salsa! I was really impressed.

Ready for an organic beef patty on Broadway in Santa Monica? The Sweet Mona has hook’s cheddar, house made organic strawberry compote, Niman ranch smoked bacon, wood smoked caramelized onions!! Chef Makani made me a special one because I am allergic to strawberries and do not eat bacon. I loved my special aloha taste from Pono Burger!

Happy Eating! Lisa
