Only 3 days till Plate by Plate!!! I can’t wait. It has been awhile since I attended their food/wine event. On this particular post, I was forwarded some great pictures of past events. I thought you guys might enjoy.
What I remember from past events, the lines weren’t long and crowded as other food/wine events. The venues – Pacific Design Center and the current California Science Center, were great choices. The light airy spaces provide great natural light in the early summer nights. The array of tables lined up with the center reflection pool make the California Science Center the ideal location for food and wine festivals.
In addition, being that Project by Project is heavily Asian Influenced, you’ll see some restaurants that aren’t normally at other festivals. You’ll taste Chinese, Japanese, and Korean specialities as well as more exotic Japanese Sakes and Thai Beers.
Here is a list of some of the Purveyors that I am looking forward to. . .
Vavo Ginger Ale
One other nice little bonus. . . Project by Project caters toward the young Asian professional in the Los Angeles area . . . while most other food/wine events have a “higher” age demographic. This means you’ll see more younger and pretty people. . .
Project by Project, a 100 percent volunteer- Asian Pacific American non-profit organization, will host its seventh annual tasting benefit, branded Plate by Plate, in Los Angeles. Leaders of the restaurant business and their executive chefs from across Southern California will gather for a special evening to showcase their culinary artwork to benefit Project by Project’s 2009 non-profit community partner – Asian Pacific Islander Small Business Program. All net proceeds from admission and auction purchases of the event will benefit API SBP (http://www.apisbp.org) to help the organization strengthen its foundation and mission to assist the development of Asian and Pacific Islander small and micro businesses in Los Angeles, especially those of low income immigrants of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Filipino communities.
