Red Carpet Photos of the FOOD & WINE All-Star Weekend At ARIA Resort & Casino

The second annual FOOD & WINE All-Star Weekend took place on FRIDAY, October 21 with a star-studded red carpet.

We had the pleasure to meet and take pictures of Gail Simmons and other celebrity chefs and epicurean icons! They included Michael Mina, Julian Serrano, Masayoshi Takayama and Shawn McClain in addition to Top Chef alumni Stephanie Izard, Angelo Sosa, Hosea Rosenberg, Yigit Pura and Sam Talbot.

This Red Carpet event was a lot of fun and well organized! One of the few that started on time! All the chef and epicurean icons seemed to be having fun getting their pictures taken. I did get a chance to talk to Top Chef alumni Angelo Sosa. He is super nice and was easy to talk to. He said is restaurant in New York Social Eatz is doing very well. He is in the process of opening a restaurant in California. I did ask if he planned on anything for Vegas he said “Yes in the next two years”! Angelo also has a cook book coming out in March that he is very excited about and so am I! I have been a fan of Top Chef since it started and Angelo was my favorite!  I did have to check out the jeans that they mention in the show. Yes ladies they are as they mention!
