The top restaurants and chefs in Ventura County, Calif., are having a cook-off to determine who makes the yummiest food at the Yummies competition June 3. The culinary contest is part of the 19th annual Casa Pacifica Angels Wine & Food Festival at California State University's Channel Islands campus in Camarillo, Calif.
A panel of celebrity judges, including Top Chef season five and season eight participant Fabio Viviani and MasterChef season two runner-up Adrien Nieto, will judge each chef’s dish and determine which is the yummiest, based on flavor, presentation, innovation, and quality.
The Casa Pacific Angel’s Wine & Food Festival showcases restaurants, caterers, bakeries, and specialty shops from Santa Barbara to Conejo Valley, and wineries throughout California's wine-producing regions.
All-inclusive tickets for the Casa Pacifica Angel’s Wine & Food Festival are $100. Event proceeds go to Casa Pacifica Centers for Children and Families, a crisis-care and residential treatment facility for abused, neglected, or at-risk children in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
