The Annual Los Angeles Times’ The TASTE “Field to Fork” event was a hot success

THE TASTE took over Paramount Pictures Studios Saturday, August 31 for the Field to Fork event. It was hosted by Russ Parsons, Times Food Editor, and Michael Cimarusti, Chef/Owner of Providence, Chef/Partner of Connie and Ted’s, and spotlighted seasonal and sustainable dining.

The Taste was broken up into two areas – a beautiful courtyard immersed in the area where they would normally film scenes on the water and the cityscape where it could be streets from Brooklyn, Boston, or Los Angeles. Let’s take a tour…

Our first stop was Good Girl Dinette in Los Angeles, CA. They served up a Summer Fruit & Licorice Hand pie made with Kek Ranch stone fruit. The pie crust was flaky and buttery, reminding me of my mom’s recipe of Japanese Piecrust Manju. The summer fruit filling was just right, not too sweet yet tasted quite fresh. I wanted another one, but knew we had so much more to taste.
