You have probably already heard about Le Grand Fooding: Crush, the posse’s upcoming inaugural event in Los Angeles on April 26-27. In fact, tickets went on sale a month ago, and a glance at the event website’s signage would indicate they’ve already sold out the duo of dates.

Therefore, it would be cruel of me to rehash that participants include Nancy Silverton (Mozza), Ludo Lefebvre (Trois Mec), Josef Centeno (Bäco Mercat, Bar Ama), Roy Choi (Kogi BBQ, Chego, A-Frame, Sunny Spot), Jordan Kahn (Red Medicine) and Carolynn Spence (Chateau Marmont) as well as Parisian chefs such as Inaki Aizpitarte (Le Chateaubriand), Gregory Marchand (Frenchie), Jean-François Piège (Restaurant Jean-François Piège) and for VIPs, Sven Chartier (Saturne). …And yet!

Maybe not. Fortunately, there’s an arguably even better opportunity for the winner of this giveaway. The pre-event dinner (wherein the winner of this giveaway plus a guest will join media and VIP) will feature a meal prepared by Craig Thornton of Wolvesmouth and Miles Thompson of Allumette. It’s no secret that I am a big fan of both chefs, so I can confidently say this dinner promises to be quite an adventure. And you may be in the company of some participating chefs from the main event.

To enter:

  1. Comment below with a correct email address – this way I can get in touch with you – and why you want to go to the Le Grand Fooding pre-event dinner.
  2. Tweet this:

“Giveaway by @estarLA: @LeFooding Pre-Event Dinner on 4/25 ft. @wolvesmouth and @allumettela with @MasterCard.”

If you don’t have Twitter, post this blog post publicly on your Facebook wall. Link to your Facebook wall in comments if you did the Facebook post instead of the tweet. (I’ll be able to find you if you tweet.)

You must do both of these; if you don’t and I can’t confirm you’ve done both, I’ll have to choose another winner should your number come up in the lottery.

Contest will close Tuesday, April 23 at 5 PM. I will announce the winner via Twitter as well as contact you via the email you use to comment below. If the winner doesn’t respond to me by the end of the day on Tuesday, I’ll pick a new winner to be announced Wednesday morning.

Good luck!!

Disclosures: These tickets were given to me by MasterCard for promotional purposes to award to a reader, but I am responsible for this promotion. Winner must provide proper contact info to me, which I will then forward on to MasterCard. Your contact info will be used for fulfillment purposes only.

  1. Because I live in a cultural wasteland known as the High Desert and am in great need of some culinary enlightenment and respite! :)

  2. Craig Thornton of Wolvesmouth and Miles Thompson of Allumette are both two of LA’s young rising stars doing creative innovative plates. I love learning about chef’s cuisine and cooking philosophies by understanding who and what has and continues to inspire them as well as the sourcing and approach to the ingredients each chef uses. Since these two are so innovative and I have yet to meet either, I’d love and greatly appreciate the opportunity to meet both of them and experience their cuisines at such a wonderful event.

  3. My hubby and I LOVE food and have traveled the world in search of all culinary delights. I know we would enjoy this event immensely =D

  4. I need to go to this. Love both Miles and Craig’s cooking. Unluckily I missed figuring out if I was going to be in town. I am already hungry.

  5. My favorite hobby is eating. My hips don’t lie. They love food. Check my instagram too. I do a lot of food porn. It’s the only porn I am allowed to do. The only TV shows I watch are reality shows and anything on Cooking channels. My love for cooking started when I was 11yrs old. I’m now 36 and I’m surprised I’m not yet a TOP CHEF at this age. Maybe because I think I have a better future in modeling (LOLOLOL!). I have never won anything in my life. If I win this giveaway it will feel like winning the Mega Millions or something like that.

  6. Having tasted Craig’s cooking before, it’s impossible to pass up a chance to have it again! And I’ve been meaning to try Allumette ever since I saw your blog post on it. This dinner is, quite plainly, foodie heaven! (my twitter is @rowr) :)

  7. I would want to go because I never even knew this existed.
    I love food I love photography and I discovered that both go hand in hand.

    I’m always looking to experience new things and it wasn’t until recently that I stumbled upon this event.

    I would want to go because of the new experiences, foods, and photos

  8. Because there are some things money can’t buy…and at the moment – it’s tickets to this event! #mastercardrules

  9. I love reading the various food blogs that cover our great city, and I’ve read about the fantastic meals that Craig Thornton puts together. Unfortunately, I’ve never been able to try any of his offerings. They look so unique and interesting and tasty! I would love the chance to sample some of his food.

  10. Yes pleassseee!!!! It’s in my neighborhood!!!!! Also, because my favorite protein is duck :P
