Taste America at Tratto

They also offer educational programs, scholarships, and mentorship opportunities for aspiring chefs.

The James Beard Foundation is a testament to the power of food to bring people together, to inspire creativity and innovation, and to make a positive impact on the world. Whether you’re a professional chef or a passionate home cook, the foundation offers something for everyone. By supporting the James Beard Foundation, you’re not just supporting the culinary arts; you’re supporting a community of people who are working to create a better, more sustainable food system for all. The foundation hosts numerous events throughout the year, including educational seminars, tastings, and fundraisers. We are always honored when we are included.

Taste America is an initiative that brings together chefs, special guests, and diners from different parts of the United States to celebrate local independent restaurants. The goal is to support these restaurants, which are at the heart of our communities. At Tratto, there was a special dinner with an intimate atmosphere, featuring a multi-course menu created by three chefs: Cassie Shortino of Shorty’s Char Pit in Phoenix, Varanya Geyoonsawat of Kann in Portland, and Christa Chase of Tratto in Phoenix. The menu reflected each chef’s unique style and highlighted the distinctiveness of their respective communities. The dinner also offered beverage pairings for each course.
