If you did not attend the Third Annual Los Angeles Food & Wine Opening Party last night, you missed chef Giada De Laurentiis celebrating her birthday with a cake made by the Duff’s Cakemix Duff Goldman.

You also missed fine food from top chefs from LA, San Francisco, and beyond, lots of wines. Since pictures are worth a thousand words, take a look at photos from the gala. I’m hoping to see you over the weekend at the upcoming events.
