Los Delicious Panel Event

Full Panel Production: Talent Booking, Subject Research and Script Development, Overseeing Audio & Lighting, Event Promotion and Custom Graphics.

Overview

We believe that the unique qualities of the food and drinks filling the kitchens and mouths of Los Angeles has undoubtedly made this a more wonderful city. The impact of multiple cultures in a shared space can have a wide variety of positive effects. We can look to food as a microcosm of that complex intersection and can learn from the successes and shortcomings of cuisine-assimilation.
