dineLA Presents the dineLA Chef Roundtable

On June 8th the distinctive REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater) will play host to the historic and first-ever dineLA Chef Roundtable.

This unprecedented roundtable forum will feature several LA culinary pioneers in a moderated and lively panel discussion. The illustrious group will include chefs who have contributed to making Los Angeles one of the top culinary destinations in the world. This includes: Wolfgang Puck, Josiah Citrin, Susan Feniger, Karen Hatfield, Mark Peel and Joachim Splichal. The dineLA Chef Roundtable will be moderated by Lisa Foxx, radio show host at 104.3MYfm, and the event will take place at REDCAT Theater in Downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday, June 8, 2010. The panel discussion will take place from 7:00-8:00pm, and will be immediately followed by a special hour-long post reception hosted by Downtown’s own Starry Kitchen where guests and chefs can mingle, autograph cookbooks and discuss their trademark dishes and famed eateries.

This one-of-a-kind event is free and open to the community on a first-come, first-served basis with advanced RSVP. The audience will also include students from local culinary institutes, as well as some of today’s freshest and most exciting new culinary faces. The roundtable will feature a myriad of topics revolving around LA’s culinary groundbreakers, mentors and protégés, as well as discuss the evolution and future of the Los Angeles dining scene. The panel will be followed by an audience Q&A. Space is extremely limited and rsvp with confirmation number will be required.

“Los Angeles is one of the best food cities in the world and we wanted to create a program that provides Angelenos with direct access to the people who have helped make it what it is. Each of these chefs has influenced LA’s culinary landscape, and their shared relationships and history will make for some great conversation. To have this group together on one stage is truly historic and will showcase the breadth of LA’s dining scene,” explains Mark Liberman, president and CEO of LA INC. The Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau.
