It's a short work week for most, but that doesn't mean that we can't already start planning for next weekend's fun. This Friday and Saturday Bon Appetit Magazine is coming to Los Angeles for a very special 50th anniversary celebration heralded as "The Ultimate Wine and Dine Weekend." The event brings together "some of the country's most celebrated chefs and entertaining personalities paired with the dynamic culinary talents of Los Angeles and Southern California." There will be workshops focused on food and wine, tastings, seminars, a Grand Tasting featuring 50 top chefs, and the chance to walk along Rodeo Drive and taste and mingle with top names in cooking and retail. Participants include Honorary Co-Chair and local legend Wolfgang Puck, the stylish Colin Cowie, Bon Appetit's Test Kitchen guru Cat Cora, and the ubiquitous Border Girls Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, and the magazine Editor Barbara Fairchild. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Chefs for Humanity.
