In my eyes, any excuse is good enough to go to The Bazaar by José Andrés at the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills for a cube of foie gras wrapped in cotton candy.

So I was especially pleased to find executive chef Jorge Chicas serving it at the second Los Angeles March of Dimes Annual Chefs Event.


Over 300 guests gathered last week on the private patio at the SLS to taste food and wine from more than 25 restaurants and wineries.


During the evening some $100,000 was raised to benefit the 70-year-old charity organization created by 32nd President of the United States Franklin Delano Roosevelt to fight polio. Today The March of Dimes is the leading nonprofit organization for pregnancy and baby health. With chapters nationwide and its premier event, March for Babies, The March of Dimes works to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.
