Guests will explore widely discussed eating lifestyles: Sustainable, Vegan, Paleo, Raw, Local and Ayurveda. The experience offers insight into why people choose them and “how to find the true fork that suits you.”
Each of the events in the six-part series spotlights one chef’s unique approach to ethical, mindful eating. A delicious multi-course meal will be accompanied by cocktails and conversation at Wanderlust Hollywood.
The Find Your True Fork series is also a peek inside the upcoming book Wanderlust: Find Your True Fork, from author and creator of the wildly popular Wanderlust Festivals Jeff Krasno. In the past we have highly recommended book selections published by Rodale’s Organic Life on this website, and we look forward to this one.
The dinners take place at Wanderlust Hollywood (1357 N. Highland Avenue, Los Angeles) and begin at 7pm. Tickets are $80/dinner or attend all six for $360. Purchase tickets here
