11 great things we ate at The Taste

Los Angeles Times – View Online

This past weekend, many of us — many thousands of us — spent three days eating and drinking ourselves silly at The Taste, the L.A. Times’ annual food festival. Many capable people turned Paramount Studios into a Disneyland for foodies, with demonstration stages and booths and even a blue car. Thanks to all the chefs, cooks and bartenders who came out and spent their holiday weekend working. To mark the occasion, and for those of you who couldn’t come — and somehow missed the zillion tweets we sent out — here are a few highlights. See you (we hope) next year.

Yogurt-salt gelato with olive oil from Bulgarini Gelato

Leo Bulgarini brought his gelato cart to the festival, for which we’d be grateful anytime but particularly in this heat. Our favorite? His salted yogurt gelato, which was drizzled with excellent olive oil.
