Vegas hosted the Bon Appétit Uncork’d this weekend and after all the cooking (and eating!) the party moved on to the Palazzo’s After Hours- Crushed: Wine that Rocks.
Kicking off the evening’s festivities at 10:00pm was a red carpet with rock star chefs and celebrities, who joked and compared notes. Celebrities and VIPs walking the carpet included: winemaker Joe Bastianich, editor in chief of Bon Appetit Barbara Fairchild, actor Chazz Palminteri from A Bronx Tale, actor Rick Faugno of Jersey Boys, actress Laura Prepon of That 70’s Show, Scott Ian of Anthrax, and Six Foot Nurse. The list of star-studded chefs in attendance was incredible as Zach Allen of Carnevino, Vince Chiyuto of Lagasse’s Stadium, Sam DeMarco of FIRST Food & Bar, Frank and Carla Pellegrino of Rao’s, Luciano Pellegrini of Valentino.
Food faddies, chefs and celebs mingled poolside at the Palazzo where of course there was MORE food, featuring signature bites from the all-star lineup at The Palazzo, including Bangin’ Mini’s from First Food and Bar Executive Chef Sam DeMarco, salumi and cheese from Executive Chef Zach Allen of Carnevino, and a Rockin’ Wing Bar from Chef de Cuisine Vince Chiyuto of Lagasse’s Stadium.
We may never eat again.
