Chefs from your favorite restaurants and television shows, food writers and bloggers, cookbook authors, food trucks, live music, and tons to eat and drink await attendees of the LA Times' upcoming Celebration of Food & Wine, which is taking place Sunday September 5th at Paramount Studios.On four different stages, a number of local food personalities you know from Top Chef (Michael Voltaggio, Betty Fraser, Alex Reznik. CJ Jacobsen), your favorite food trucks (Coolhaus, Dosa Truck, Bustaurant), The Next Food Network Star (Aarti Sequeira, DAS Smith), and restaurants (Ludo Lefebvre of LudoBites, John Sedlar of Rivera, Jimmy Shaw of Loteria Grill)--to name just a few--will be talking and cooking in several demos and panels.

Food vendors have a definite street food inclination, including Anh-Joo, SedThee, Tropical Shave Ice, and a couple dozen more. A Food Network Food Truck area will have the trucks on their Great Food Truck Race show, while those who get a VIP pass can taste food from some of the city's more upscale establishments like BLD/Grace, Lago, Eva, and many more.
