The Yummies competition is an action-packed culinary showdown involving Ventura County’s top restaurants and chefs, and will be held at the 19th Annual Casa Pacifica Angel’s Wine & Food Festival on Sunday, June 3, 2012 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM.
The Yummies culinary competition showcases each chef’s entry to be judged based on flavor, presentation, innovation and quality. Entries will be tasted by a panel of celebrity judges comprised of television and print media personalities, food and wine editors, and food and wine columnists based on which chef’s dish they feel is the “Yummiest.”
The panel of celebrity judges includes Top Chef Season five and Season eight participant, Fabio Viviani, and runner-up on Season two of MasterChef, Adrien Nieto. Viviani is also a talented chef and owner of Café Firenze in Moorpark, California and Firenze Osteria in Toluca Lake, California. Nieto is also the founder of …Cruda…, a new food company that offers foods created from local, sustainable, seasonal, and organic sources.
