Confirmed restaurants that will offer tastings at the Las Vegas include MICHAEL MINA Bellagio, Harvest by Roy Ellamar, Rivea Las Vegas, Franklin Lounge, Della’s Kitchen, Tom Colicchio’s Heritage Steak, ORTORO Robata Grill & Sushi, Tom’s Urban, THE Steak House and more.
During a Facebook live chat with USA TODAY, Stewart lauded the event as a prime destination for foodies.
“If you are especially interested in the chefs, you will have an opportunity to meet and taste the food of all the really fine chefs in the area, and that’s very valuable because you’ll make new friends, you’ll find new places to visit during the whole year,” she said. “If you live in a place like Las Vegas, you’ll absolutely want to try all these new restaurants, and it’s very hard to get a sampling – you can’t just make a reservation and get a sample when you go. Here is your opportunity to sample the wares, the goods, the foods of the people in your city, and it is just extraordinary.”
Beyond rubbing shoulders with celeb chefs and devouring food and drink, event attendees can also partake in a hands-on culinary experience at “The Grateful House,” where they can make their own salsa, learn to decorate desserts and more. Grateful.co, host of the hands-on experience, is part of the USA TODAY Network.
Tickets for the Vegas event are currently available for purchase online. Tickets that include tastings of alcoholic beverages start at $85 for the pre-sale. Participants looking for face time with Stewart can purchase a “Meet Martha!” pass for $250, which includes a gift bag packed with Stewart swag and a meet and greet with her.
