Saturday, August 29:
• Tony Mantuano (Spiaggia) and wine pro Cathy Mantuano will prepare tomato dishes and offer wine pairing advice.

• Stephanie Izard (Girl & the Goat) will serve up a preview of her forthcoming Duck Duck Goat.

• Drink up with sommeliers Rachael Lowe (Spiaggia) and Steven Morgan (Formento’s) and wine pro Arthur Hon (Sepia) as they take you through Italian wines.

Sunday, August 30:

• Los Angeles chefs Ludo Lefebvre (Petit Trois, Trois Mec, Ludo Bird) and Vinny Dotolo & Jon Shook (Animal, Trois Mec, Petit Trois, Son of a Gun) will cook potatoes three ways.
