Second Los Angeles Food & Wine Festival Announced

The festival, in partnership with Wolfgang Puck, continues its charitable tradition

Last year's Los Angeles Food & Wine.

Last year's inaugural Los Angeles Food & Wine festival was a star-studded affair, with a reception with Giada de Laurentiis, a red carpet premiere, and cameos by Kathy Griffin, Daniel Boulud, and Guy Fieri. We can only imagine that the same sort of celeb-vibe will be there the second time around.

Los Angeles Food & Wine, hosted by Wolfgang Puck and Coastal Luxury Management, announced the return of the foodie event, this time in August 2012. This weekend-long festival will continue to benefit St. Vincent's Meals on Wheels; the co-founder of CLM, said last year's event raised $400,000 for the organization. 

No word yet on the chefs and culinary stars attending the 2012 festival, but last year's event included Tom Colicchio, Tyler Florence, Joey Campanaro, and more. Tickets for the event will go on sale in April.
