A Prix Fixe Menu offers guests a multi-course meal for a fixed price. Typically, that means diners get three courses consisting of an appetizer, entrée, and dessert or beverage. You are welcome to have options to choose from for each course, or have the entire meal planned and selected ahead of time by the chef. A Tasting Menu consists of small portions of different dishes, many of which showcase the chef’s skills or highlight local flavors. Cancellation: If for reasons beyond the Chamber’s control the Taste of La Verne must be cancelled, the La Verne Chamber of Commerce is not liable for any cost other than exhibitor space fees. If date or location must be changed for some reason beyond the Chamber’s control, a new date or location will be sent out as soon as possible.
