Presented by Cadillac, Taste at The Grove will bring foodies together for live cooking exhibitions, led by leading chefs, pre-fixe menu specials at The Grove, ride and drive programs with dining incentives, and a Tasting Hour and VIP reception. Open to the public from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., the 4th Annual taste of The Grove will give a percentage of all restaurant proceeds to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to finding cures for kids with cancer.
From 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., live cooking demonstrations, which are free and open to the public, will take place on the main stage at The Park at The Grove, featuring celebrity chefs such as Neal Fraser (BLD), Alan Jackson (Lemonade), Roxana Jullapat (Cooks County), Steven Arroya (La Otra Escuela), Anthony Jacquet (Whisper Lounge and Restaurant), Alberico Nunziata (La Piazza), Phil Kastel (Public School 310) and Devin Alexander among others.
From 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The Tasting Hour & Cadillac Dish Award will take place, where visitors in The Park can sample dishes from restaurants in The Grove. The most shared dish via social media will be named the People’s Taste Choice. Food blogger and editor of Eater LA, Kat Odell, will be on hand to select her personal favorite dish, which will be named the Cadillac Taste Dish. Guests can purchase a “Tasting Pass” for $20 per person.
From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Ride and Drives presented by Cadillac will be held where participants can test-drive the all-new 2013 Cadillac ATS and XTS.
On June 29 and 30, The Grove restaurants will curate a special “Taste” pre-fixe menu for Dine The Grove. Prices will vary depending on restaurant and the menus will only be available to guests during the Taste at The Grove weekend.
