Taste prepared a dinner at the James Beard House in New York City. The dinner was held April 30, 2013
Receiving an invitation to cook at the James Beard House is just the first step in the long road to the actual dinner. It’s an expensive endeavor. The James Beard Foundation is a not-for-profit. Chefs donate the entire cost of the ingredients as well as travel expenses. “These events are a partnership between us and the chef,” explains Ms. Wojcik, “It’s expensive to create and maintain a performance space for the chefs.” The price charged for the dinner just covers the essential staff, marketing, and maintenance of the home.
Probably the biggest logistical feat of a James Beard dinner is getting all the ingredients to the kitchen in New York City. The James Beard kitchen, housed in Beard’s small New York town house, is a little better equipped than a conventional home kitchen. Storage space is minimal and, because of the number of events each week, nothing can be brought to the house until the day of the event.
ZAGAT Rated - America's Top Restaurants
ZAGAT #1 Restaurant in Sacramento Region
Wine Spectator Award
since 2008 the Wine Spectator has awarded Taste with an Award of Excellence
for the wine list.
Top 50 restaurants in 2009 and in 2010 for Service in the U.S. says OpenTable.com
Taste was selected by the KCRA A-List as one of the top restaurants in the Sacramento area for 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
Sacramento Magazine says: "One pull on the big fork-shaped door handle of the restaurant’s century-old quarters and we were transported into a lovely ochre-colored dining room with wood-plank floors, golden light, and smiling faces on the staff and customers. Taste is small and comforting, its food a cure for the blahs."
Via Magazine says: Quiet Plymouth seems an odd setting for a restaurant as sleek and citified as Taste, but that’s by design. Owner/chef Mark Berkner’s small bites are perfectly suited to cap off a day of wine tasting. Start with the mushroom cigars wrapped in phyllo dough and just keep going. The menu changes with the seasons, but the lamb and seafood (such as scallops) always rate.
Menu items are fresh, seasonal and changing with availability while offering a variety of selections from Beef to Vegetarian. If we could offer a scratch and sniff website we would - trust us you will enjoy the experience.
Please join us, we look forward to providing you with a memorable dining experience in downtown Plymouth, gateway to the Amador Wine Country.
