1st Annual Taste of Beverly Hills-mark your calendars

Food & Wine magazine has announced plans to host a brand new foodie extravaganza this fall, the 1st Annual Taste of Beverly Hills. The fancy soiree will be September 2-5 (Labor Day weekend) and here’s what I so far:

“Sponsored by Food & Wine magazine, the first annual Taste of Beverly Hills is a four-day epicurean event celebrating the worlds of food, wine, art, and music. Designed to intrigue the palate and engage the senses, Beverly Hills residents—and beyond—are encouraged to come out and experience a wine and food event unlike any other…The festival will include food and wine tastings from celebrity chefs and renowned restaurants—both local and from around the country—live cooking demonstrations, wine seminars from Napa’s top vintners, live musical performances from award-winning artists, and more.”

Highlights of the weekend include:

· “The Art of Mixing” (Friday evening)—this evening will feature the city’s top mixologists and DJs “mixing” their talents.
· “Secrets From the Kitchen and Cellar” (Saturday afternoon)—chefs and master sommeliers will showcase the tricks of their trades.
· “Taste of Something Better” Cooking Competition (Saturday afternoon)—during the competition, which is hosted by LG Electronics, three finalists will vie for the crown of “America’s Top Amateur Chef”
· “Date Night” (Saturday evening)—this will be an enjoyable evening of good food, wine, music, and one-on-one time with master sommeliers and vintners.
· “The Art of Brunch” (Sunday afternoon)—guests will enjoy free-flowing brunch cocktails, live gospel and jazz performances, a 50-foot grand table featuring the city’s finest pastries and breads, along with KCRW’s annual pie contest.

Tickets are $125 per person, with advance purchase, for a day session pass (NOT CHEAP!); $150 per person, with advance purchase, for an evening session pass; and $500 per person for an all-access weekend packages that will allow guests into afternoon and evening sessions, seminars, how-tos, chef demos, competitions, and more
