Gourmet food festival

Wolfgang Puck dishes for a cause

Wolfgang Puck’s brunch and charity auction Sunday capping the first Los Angeles Food & Wine festival promises to be much more than just mimosas and waffles. The lavish event runs until 5 p.m. and offers a preview of the remodeled Hotel Bel-Air restaurant before its Nov. 1 opening, as well as a lineup of star chefs.

One of L.A.’s most significant hunger relief orgs, St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, will benefit from the brunch and auction, where Big Bad Voodoo Daddy will perform.

Dishes from Puck and Spago’s Sherry Yard will of course be on the menu, and joining them are chefs including Nobu Matsuhisa, Michel Richard and Francois Payard.

Leading up to the mega-charity brunch are dozens of events, from a Friday clambake in Santa Monica with Tom Colicchio to a Saturday L.A. Live concert featuring Train with 30 chefs and 200 wines at L.A. Live. The three-day fest, produced by Coastal Luxury Management, Dick Clark Prods. and AEG, is billed as the first crossover culinary event matching TV, film, music and sports personalities with celebrity chefs.
