LA Food & Wine 2013 – Giada’s Festa Italiana

by Franklin on September 4, 2013

Giada De Laurentiis. Thomas Keller. Scott Conant. Duff Goldman. These are just a few of the celebrity chefs that made it to the Italian based LA Food and Wine event. Taking place on Grand in downtown, the outside air and the sunset silhouette of the downtown skyline was spectacular.

The most spectacular booth was that of Thomas Keller’s Bouchon. Serving some awesome mussels, shrimp, and oysters on a half shell, the food was fresh and delicious. What was most impressive was the ice sculpture of the serving table.

One thing I did not know was that it was Giada’s birthday that night! How cool would it be to host an LAFW festival and celebrate your birthday too? Duff Goldman made an awesome cake for her and Josh Guerrero, an LA Opera tenor serenaded Giada with a birthday song and something in Italian. It was good enough to even make Giada blush.

The night was filled with an awesome set by DJ ?uestlove. Filled with awesome food and music, along with some of the best chefs in the world, the night on Grand Ave. was certainly the gastronomic center of LA.
