|Asian Night Market at last year's L.A. Food and Wine festival|
Last year, the Asian Night Market was a good time with very manageable lines, boozy popsicles, people actually dancing in the street and some excellent tastes. This year's event features chefs and restaurants including David Lefevre, Yujean Kang, Starry Kitchen, Nobu, David Myers (Hinoki & the Bird), Jet Tila, the Spice Table, Night + Market, Mo-Chica and Seoul Sausage with dozens of wineries as well as beer and cocktails.
What else sounds intriguing at L.A. Food and Wine? If you're into:
Cocktails: Mixology lunch at Hinoki & the Bird with guest chef Charles Phan from the Slanted Door (8/23)
Bacon and bourbon: Is there anybody who isn't? Chef Edward Lee of Louisville, Kentucky's 610 Magnolia cooks up pork bits paired with small batch bourbons at the Dorothy Chandler pavilion. (8/24)
Wine and cheese: Cheese expert Laura Werlin pairs wines with a selection of cheeses, if you're up for that at 10:30 a.m. on a Sunday (8/24).
These events can be pricey, but L.A.F.W. donates a portion of the proceeds to Share our Strength.
