Wolfgang Puck’s “American Wine & Food Festival” Returns to Los Angeles
28th Annual American Wine & Food Festival
Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck and Barbara Lazaroff are once again hosting the annual American Wine & Food Festival in Los Angeles. Many of the world's top chefs and wine and spirit purveyors will gather on the beautifully lighted back lot of Universal Studios, to raise a celebratory glass in support of the Meals on Wheels programs of Los Angeles. On the evening of September 25, 2010, at 6:00 PM a pantheon of food and beverage stars will exercise their considerable talents for the enjoyment of over 2,700 food and wine enthusiasts. The opportunity to sample exceptional dishes prepared by an internationally acclaimed group of chefs will be accompanied by live music, dancing, and a silent auction.
The general public is invited to attend the fundraiser and enjoy one of Southern California’s most memorable yearly events. American Wine & Food Festival tickets are available for $300 per person. Table reservations are available from $3,500. A special 5:00 PM Wolfgang Puck VIP Cooking Demonstration will be available to those who purchased VIP tickets.

Staged against the backdrop of movie sets, the signature Saturday night event returns, once again, to Universal Studios Back Lot. As dusk falls, a spectacularly lit movie set provides the stage for a culinary scene like none other: An unrivaled epicurean feast prepared by world-renowned chefs, superb libations including fine wines and smooth spirits, and a silent auction filled with luxury items – all set to swinging sounds of live bands.

About the American Wine & Food Festival: Since its inception in 1982, the Puck-Lazaroff Charitable Foundation has supported the American Wine & Food Festival, raising more than $15 million for Los Angeles Chapters of Meals On Wheels. This organization serves thousands of meals each day to Los Angeles' homebound senior and disabled citizens. As a result of their efforts on behalf of Meals On Wheels, the Austrian-born Puck, renowned for feeding Hollywood glamour at the annual post-Oscar extravaganza, and leading restaurant designer Lazaroff, are also celebrated for their philanthropic spirit.
