Foodies With Benefits

Get 30% Off Tickets To ‘Great Chefs of L.A.’ From Grub Street

The very same Sunday that Suzanne Goin is holding L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade at Culver Studios, a tasting event inspired by The Great Chefs of Philly event, L.A. is holding its 24th Annual Great Chefs celebration for the National Kidney Foundation at CBS Studio. Curious. Who will be there and how do you score a deep discount on tickets from friendly neighborhood food blog Grub Street L.A.?

“Great Chefs” will be hosted by such personalities as Top Chef Stefan Richter and Candice Kumai from TLC’s “Home Made Simple,” and feature a beer garden run by notable brew sommelier and Beer Chicks author Christina Perozzi. You can also expect live and silent auctions, along with tastings from chefs like Josie LeBalch, Mary Sue Milliken, various Drago brothers, Momed’s Matt Carpenter, and Onil Chibás and Alberto Morales from Elements. We’d love to buy you a beer or one of Stefan’s burgers, but since technology kind of limits such things, we would like to extend a 30% discount to our readers on tickets.

Simply use the code “greatgrub” when placing orders for the $150 tickets and watch them magically go down in price to just $105 for this three-and-a-half hour food event. That gets you access to 34 beverage vendors (like Highland Park scotch and Perozzi’s beer garden) and tastings from 30 chefs. Check out the current list of participants below and think of us as you eat Momed’s duck schwarma. Or don’t, it’s cool, just enjoy the discount with our thanks for reading. Tickets can be purchased online. A giveaway is also being run through the event’s Facebook page.
