We are once again in the midst of the annual extravaganza that is Los Angeles Food and Wine (LAFW). Various events span the city, happening in Santa Monica, Beverly Hills and Downtown LA. The affairs where you get the most bang for your buck are The Grand Tastings, where you can enjoy bites from the best chefs around the country and endless wine pourings for only $150 a person.

From noon to 3pm today 8/24 and tomorrow 8/25, 25 celebrity chefs will provide delectable bites for your pleasure. Some of today’s big hitters include David Lefevre, Brian Malarkey, Masaharu Morimoto, Ben Ford and Ziggy Marley, that’s right! Ziggy Marley! Tomorrow you can look forward to the kitchen stylings of Michael Fiorelli, Mark Peel, Ricardo Zarate, and Jason Travi. Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared to juggle plates and glasses as your palate is dazzled.
