Le Fooding, the Parisian publishing cabal that casts a critical inward eye on the French restaurant scene and its haute-hooked media, is coming to Los Angeles next month to stage a two-night event at MOCA called Le Grand Fooding Crush. Over April 26 and 27, chefs of local renown like Roy Choi, Nancy Silverton, Jordan Kahn, Carolynn Spence, and Ludo Lefebvre will team up for a tasting with imported Parisian chefs Jean-Francois Piege, Greg Marchland, Sven Chartier, and Inaki Aizpitarte, each serving one of their own dishes aside pours of Champagne, DJs, and local and French designers, including a t-shirt design collaboration by Shepard Fairey and Andre Saraiva. Tickets are set on different tiers priced at $50 and $80, with an ultra-exclusive run of 20 VIP tickets priced at $125, with 20% of all sales going to L.A. Food Bank and MOCA. Tickets do not go on sale until April 2 and most likely will sell out kind of quickly. However, we have a channel to get you tickets this morning. How do you buy today?
It’s pretty simple really. All you have to have is a Mastercard. If you’ve sworn your fealty to that corporation’s quest for global rule, you’re in luck at Le Fooding, as the banking giant is partnered with the event to offer pre-sale tickets starting today at 9:00 A.M. All you need to do is go to this link here and buy the tickets using your card. The link will be available through April 1.
For everyone else, you have to wait until April 2 at 9:00 A.M. when the public tickets go on sale, taking what little consolation you can from supporting some other titan of the credit industry. Just to make the full picture more complete, we’ve jotted down Le Grand Fooding Crush’s ticket pricing schemes down below. Bonne chance!
