Giveaway! Tickets to THE TASTE Desserts After Dark

LA Times and Food and Wine's weekend-long extravaganza, The Taste, is happening this weekend!
Spanning 4 days over 3 locations and 9 events, there are plenty to choose from. Now, we know most of you can't afford to go to ALL of them, which why they've offered to give away A PAIR OF TICKETS (up to $300 value) to one of the events!

Now, since I love desserts, I'm going to give away tickets to the Desserts after Dark, taking place on Sunday evening. The event features Food Network star Duff Goldman, desserts from Craft Restaurant, Waylynn Lucas's f┼Źnuts, Compartes chocolates, Sweet Rose Creamery, and much more. Wash them down with some Qream Liqueur, Dow’s Port and a little Villa Massa Limoncello.

You can enter in two ways (or get two entries if you do both):
1. Comment below with your email address and tell us what your favorite dessert is.
2. Comment on my Facebook Page with your favorite dessert.

Easy, right?
They need the name of the winner by the end of the day tomorrow, which means this contest will end at NOON tomorrow! Then if I don't hear back from the winner by 3pm with their full names, I will draw another name - so be checking that mailbox.

PS. If you want to attend the other events, you can get tickets at 40% off from Bloomspot or OpenTable.

Chocolate. In almost any shape or form. And dark chocolate ice cream? With a little salt? Extra points!


I love all desserts, so it's hard to choose one. Castella sponge cake is one of my all time favorites though.

Devil's Advocate

My favorite dessert so far is a Lobster Tail from Veneiro's in NYC, which I've been told is also known as a sfogliatelle. Since I obviously can't have that too often, I always delight in having eclairs and cream puffs. Yum.


mmm any and all cheesecake!

Love Mama

Chocolate croissant bread pudding from Masa of Echo Park!


It's nearly impossible to choose just one but one that is always a standard and a trusty go-to favorite is cherry cheesecake.

Tres Leches from Portos Bakery...nothing compliments potato balls and meat pies better. :)


The banana creme pie at A-Frame right now is tops for me.
