25th Annual American Wine & Food Festival

Founded by renowned Chef Wolfgang Puck, the American Wine & Food Festival on September 29 is a star-studded gathering of internationally celebrated chefs and fine wine and spirits purveyors. Savor California has been invited to offer dishes using artisan products from the website.

This organization serves thousands of meals each day to homebound, senior and disabled citizens in Los Angeles.

The event is open to the public and features live music, a silent auction and an epicurean feast. To purchase tickets.
