The Taste Celebrates a Decade of Dining on the Paramount Backlot

The Taste Celebrates a Decade of Dining on the Paramount Backlot
Paramount Pictures backlot opened up its iconic city streets for a three-day pop-up food festival weekend.

Wrapping up the last long weekend of the summer, The Taste returned to Paramount Pictures Studio backlot for a three-night culinary celebration of the city’s top toques and trend-setting global restaurant concepts. Hosted by the Los Angeles Times editorial staff, the backlot food crawl showcased the diverse epicurean culture from Thai to Ethiopian and Indian cuisine along with chefs from the award-winning outposts such as The Bazaar by Jose Andres who served Hamachi cones, Cal Mare Mediterranean cuisine rolled out saffron arancini and HomeState made their famous queso with brisket chili. 

In addition to cooking demos, conversations, live music and interactive games, there were cocktails by top mixologists, wine tastings, and artisanal beer flowing on tap. The festive street vibe – which drew sold-out crowds in its 10th year, ended harmoniously by also benefiting two local charities: The Collins College of Hospitality Management and L.A. Regional Food Bank.
