Slideshow: What You Missed at "The Food Event 09"

Blinis from Petrossian

Top chefs from Los Angeles (and Bravo) rallied yesterday at SaddleRock Ranch in Malibu for Los Angeles magazine's "The Food Event 09." A stunning spread of mountaintop grapevines was complimented by an exotic menagerie including zebra, camels, and buffalo, as well as a beautifully breezy day at the home of Malibu Family Wines. In addition to a panel of Top Chef vets and cooking demonstrations by chef Andrew Kirschner of Wilshire and Sona/Comme Ca's David Myers (who wouldn't budge in discussing the new projects he apparently has in the works, according to MC Jeffrey Saad), among others, a chef-studded landscape of small plates and great California wines made it a tasting event to cherish.
