On April 26 and 27, Le Fooding will bring their innovative food festival to Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), combining cuisine, culture, arts and entertainment.
According to LAist, Parisian “guide-book-writers-cum-food-fest-organizers” from Le Fooding opened offices in New York and saw great success among the city’s culinary crowd. In an effort to expand further, Le Fooding is heading west and bringing its popular food festival to MOCA at the end of April.
The event will feature a star chef line-up that includes four French chefs, Jean-François Piège (JF Piège), Inaki Aizpitarte (Le Chateaubriand), Grégory Marchand (Frenchie), and Sven Chartier (Saturne), and four Los Angeles chefs, Nancy Silverston (Mozza), Ludo Lefebvre (Trois Mecs), Roy Choi (Kogi BBQ), Josef Centeno (Baco Mercat), Jordan Kahn (Red Medicine), Carolynn Spence (Château Marmont).
The event will include “a huge outdoor and festive picnic in front of MOCA Geffen Contemporary, with the best chefs from Paris and L.A. and the top DJs and graphic designers from both cities animating the dinner.”
According to LA Eater, DJs for the event have yet to be confirmed, but “artists Shepard Fairey and Andre (of Paul & Andre) will be involved.” The event will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. and tickets will go on sale in early April. There are three types of tickets available, Le tasty Crush ticket, which is valid from 7 to 10 p.m., costs $50 and includes one flute of Veuve Clicquot; Le Clicquot Crush ticket, which is valid from 6 to 10 p.m., costs $80 and includes early access to the event and unlimited Veuve for the first hour; and Le MasterCard Priceless Crush ticket, which is valid from 6 to 10 p.m., costs $125, includes access to a VIP Priceless area backstage and must be purchased with a Mastercard.
