Celebrity Chefs Cooking Up A Storm at Nevada Wild Fest

Four-Day Festival Benefits The Lili Claire Foundation
October 25 – 28, 2012


Las Vegas’ top celebrity chefs from the world-famous Las Vegas Strip and beyond will conduct exclusive cooking demonstrations and tastings at the Nevada Wild Fest, October 25 – 28 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino.

Come see these all-star chefs from FIX, TAO, LAVO, NOVE Italiano, Ferraro’s, Marche Bacchus and Culinary Dropout live in action and taste their specialty culinary creations in a more relaxed atmosphere. The celebrity chefs will conduct an hour-long demonstration speaking about their dishes, the ingredients they use, and hints that might help those attending who are anxious to expand their culinary skills at home. As time allows, the celebrity chefs will take questions from the audience. Seating is on a first come, first served basis and samples will be offered to those in the audience. Albertsons Sav-On is providing the ingredients to all the celebrity chefs and helping to reinforce the idea that great cooking need not be comprised of hard to find ingredients.
