Voices from The Taste
Reporting by Cara Rifkin
The Taste, an event that's probably the largest food festival in Los Angeles (certainly the most star-studded), just concluded after a three-day run over Labor Day Weekend. Food lovers from around the state (including KCET readers!) made the pilgrimage to the various parties hosted around town, from Desserts After Dark to Taco Tequila Tryst. Our own Cara Rifkin was there to get the scoop on the most successful dishes and the people who love them.

Max: Number one item. However the habanero salsa, and I love spicy, was probably the spiciest thing I've ever had. And I thought I was going to die. I literally told her she was in my will. And that I loved her no matter what. But it was incredibly good.
Megan: It was great.
-Megan Calhoun and Max Broude
Max: We were looking for something to do for the holiday weekend, and a friend of ours offered us 50% discount, and I said "that sounds like a good deal."

John: We're very proud. Very proud.
