Taste & Tribute
Due to the pandemic, our annual Taste & Tribute benefit gala has been postponed for 2020 and 2021. We look forward to celebrating this meaningful and delightful event with everyone again in 2022.
Until then, we invite you to enjoy the Taste & Tribute video at the Four Seasons Hotel, San Francisco. This 2010 video is remarkably relevant, with some of the chefs rotating in and out over the years. Taste & Tribute’s success is a testament to all the chefs, wineries, businesses, and guests who have kindly given their support since it began in 2001.
SF Examiner article: “Chef Laurent Manrique Raises Funds to Preserve Tibetan Culture”
Chef Laurent Manrique of Café de la Presse, San Francisco, was the inspiration for Taste & Tribute. This 2011 article remains relevant to the present day with Chef Laurent bringing continuity of excellence and generosity as coordinating chef for 19 years.
Since 2001, his friend and colleague, Chef Peter Armellino of Plumed Horse in Saratoga has also supported and in recent years taken an active role in helping to coordinate Taste & Tribute and Sail & Tribute.
