Pacific Food & Beverage Museum, headquartered in Los Angeles, takes an expansive and inquisitive approach to its programs, examining the past, present, and future of food and drink on the Pacific Coast and across the American West. Because many cultures have assimilated into the American mainstream such that their culinary traditions are no longer recognized as an “import,” Pacific Food & Beverage focuses on the contributions of immigrants who have shaped, and continue to shape, our nation’s cuisine.
The National Food & Beverage Foundation's growing West Coast operations feature gallery exhibitions, mixology seminars, CULINARIA Query & Lecture Series events, film, television, and radio development, and other programs.
