The 6th annual Los Angeles Wine and Food Festival will be held March 8 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Ambassador Hotel, 3400 Wilshire Blvd. Culinary demonstrations by members of Les Toques Blanches International, an international chefs organization, and a wine tasting and competition are scheduled events.
The festival is co-sponsored by the American Wine Academy, a nonprofit organization, and the chefs group. Proceeds will be used to further public awareness in the gourmet industry.
Ticket holders will each receive an official voting ballot to be used to judge the various food and wine entries. Two judging categories will be designated--one for the finest tasting wines, the other for the most outstanding foods.
Wines will be presented by more than 60 wineries, including Hans Kornell, Llords & Elwood, Quady & Ficklin, Smith & Hook and Ventana.
