James Beard Foundation Hosts Philadelphia Taste America Series

PHILADEPHIA - Philadelphia’s very own Aimee Olexy, Charles Parker, and Jacquelyn Palillero of Talula’s Garden will participate in the James Beard Foundation’s Summer Taste America culinary series on Wednesday, June 23rd.

Taste America presented by Capital One will have in-person events in ten total cities nationwide, bringing chefs and diners back together again to safely celebrate local independent restaurants and build support for industry recovery in the aftermath of COVID-19.

Each event ticket includes a three-course meal curated by Restaurateur Aimee Olexy, Executive Chef Charles Parker, and Pastry Chef Jacquelyn Palillero, plus beverage pairings. Taste America supports local chefs and restaurants directly while also driving philanthropic support towards industry-wide relief. 65% of all tickets sold will go directly to Talula’s Garden to support their business, with 35% of proceeds supporting the Foundation’s national programming, including the Open for Good campaign.
