The Vegas Uncork'd Gala Dinner lets the culinary stars shine at the Bellagio

The Gala Dinner is the formal culmination of the weeks events. Some of the biggest names in the culinary world were on hand to serve their best to the guests.

The attendees strolled through the reception alongside eight fabulous chefs and enjoyed cocktails and champagne as they get warmed up for an exclusive and intimate five course dinner.

Restaurants included Michael Mina, Olives, Yellowtail, Prime, Picasso, and Jean-Philippe Pâtisserie. Dinner pairings featured international wines including wines from Icon Estates and Champagne by Remy Cointreau USA.” Bon Appétit editor-in-chief Barbara Fairchild and special correspondent Alan Richman were both on hand as well as the chefs to welcome the guests this wonderful event,

The Menu at the Gala was exactly what we expected with the culinary talent that was assembled . Only Bon Appetit could have gotten all of these chefs together in one city, at one resort and in one kitchen.
