JBF Award Winner Scott Conant
A gourmet four course luncheon featuring emcee Stuart O’Keeffe, celebrity chef, television personality, and cookbook author, benefiting the James Beard Foundation.
Just like any good wine, cheese, or cast-iron skillet, the Gourmet Four-Course Luncheon, a special feature of Palm Desert Food & Wine, only gets better each year. The lineup of award–winning celebrity chefs that will be attending the 2019 event hail from California and across the country and include Scott Conant, chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, TV personality, judge on Chopped, and frequent co-host on Food Network’s Beat Bobby Flay; Fabio Viviani, acclaimed chef, culinary personality, restaurateur, cookbook author, and winner of Top Chef’s Fan Favorite title; Antonia Lofaso, chef, restaurateur, cookbook author, and television personality on Top Chef, Restaurant Startup, Cutthroat Kitchen, and Food Network’s Guy’s Grocery Games; Zac Young, named one of the top 10 pastry chefs in America in 2015, creator of viral dessert sensation The PieCaken, finalist on Bravo’s Top Chef: Just Desserts, and Pastry Director of Craveable Hospitality Group.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the James Beard Foundation's Women's Leadership Programs, and to Coachella Valley’s FIND Food Bank.
