This weekend, well-known chefs and food personalities are hitting town for the lavish, spread-out Los Angeles Food and Wine festival at L.A. Live, in Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica.
Though they're both sold out, I'm looking forward to tasting food from The Slanted Door's Charles Phan and TV's Ming Tsai, who will be at the Asian Night Market along with local Asian food pioneers like Jet Tila, Bryant Ng, Roy Choi and many more.
Tsai also presides over Sunday's Dim Sum Feast at Wolfgang Puck's WP24.
Friday: Four-course wine luncheon at WP24 with John Lechleidner and Charles Phan
Saturday: Cooking with Cheese wine and cheese tasting and seminar with cheese expert Laura Werlin (Werlin hosts a Wine and Cheese session Sunday as well.)
Sunday: Cooking demonstration with Bryan and Michael Voltaggio
Sunday: Lexus Grand tasting at L.A. Live with 30 celebrity chefs and 300 wines
