Long Beach, CA â€“ Music Taste Good accentuated a unique dinner experience called â€œFarm-to-Tasteâ€ for VIP ticket holders only on Saturdayâ€™s portion of the festival. The Farm-to-Taste dinner was set up in the back parking lot of Padreâ€™s Latin Table and Cocktails restaurant. MTG wanted to make VIP guests feel like they were entering a Hollywood rooftop after partyâ€”and they did a pretty good job of achieving that vibe. Black sparkly carpets covered the entire cement lot, chic couches, and swanky modern tables decorated the space. Directly across from this lounge was a lineup of six cooking stations, with two chefs partnering together at each station.
The Farm-to-Taste dinner featured foods that not only reflect the rich versatile culture of Long Beach, but have been locally sourced from the Long Beach area. There was a variety of different foods to try like German garlic noodles with fresh fish and duck liver, fig and chamomile ice cream desert, and handcrafted cocktails, which provided an exciting palette for guests to taste.
However, Chefs Luis Navarro and Diego Isunza of Lolaâ€™s Mexican Cuisine came together Saturday and surely impressed guests with their delicious taco plate, which was a heavenly compilation. We got to talk to the chefs for a few minutes before they started preparing for the eveningâ€™s dish. Watch the interview below for a more detailed description!
