This Sunday, I’ll be emceeing a wonderfully delicious event that helps fight childhood hunger.

Imagine eating food created by eight of America’s top chefs, each of them paired with a local farm and winery to prepare produce-intensive dishes. There will be lots of wine, live music, cocktails, and a crowd of good hearts! Your panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean is one of the most breathtaking in the world, set on the oceanfront bluff of the Montage Laguna Beach.
