USA Today’s 2019 Wine & Food Experience

This is an event designed to showcase new chefs in Los Angeles, while paying tribute to the culinary leaders who paved the way for them. The event specializes with Meet & Greet experiences, tastings, and seminars to have the attendees leave the event a little wiser in the field of food, then they were when they first arrived.

If this event sounds tempting to you, then we recommend that you head over to USA Today’s Wine & Food Experience, this November! If you do, you will enjoy spirits from over a dozen vendors, and a sampling of foods from over 30 different chefs!

If you want to purchase the VIP experience, it will grant you early admittance an hour before the rest of the guests, giving you a possibility to mix and mingle with chefs before they get swarmed by the rest of the attendees. Is just the possibility of a mingle not enough, then the event has Meet & Greet opportunities that will guarentee your time with their celebrity talent.
