I was lucky enough to be at Santa Monica Grand Tasting event this year. It was such a great event. Susan Feniger was there, lobster potpie by Michael Mina was delicious, but my favorites were 4 course VIP tasting by My world on a plate. Their food was unique, creative and absolutely delicious.
If you are planning to go to the event next year, be sure to not wear heels, because it'll be really difficult for you to walk. Also you should get VIP tickets to avoid crowds. I got there as media so I didn't have any problems, but by the time I was leaving, there were long lines everywhere.
