[CLOSED] Win Two Tickets to The Taste

One lucky, food-loving KCET Food reader will receive a pair of tickets to The Taste's "Secrets from the Kitchen & Cellar," held September 3rd in Beverly Hills.

The Taste is a four-day festival of food and wine presented by the Los Angeles Times and Food & Wine magazine. Events held around town will include panel discussions, food truck lots, cooking demonstrations and wine tastings. [The contest is now closed.]

Secrets from the Kitchen & Cellar, held in the old Robinson's-May parking lot on Wilshire Boulevard, will include demonstrations and tastings by Scott Conant, Michael Voltaggio, Celestino Drago, Claire Robinson and Aarti Sequeira; a live interview of Ludo and Krissy Lefebvre by Russ Parsons; two different wine seminars; and over 60 food and drink stalls offering unlimited samples. You won't go home hungry!
