The Los Angeles Chapter of the American Liver Foundation is hosting the Flavors of Los Angeles culinary gala at The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey on June 6, 2007 . This unique national event will bring some of the finest chefs in Los Angeles together to offer signature cuisine to a limited number of guests in an intimate and exclusive setting. Each chef will design their own menu and prepare a five-course dinner, complete with complementing wines for a table of twelve guests. Chefs will also design the table settings to reflect their cuisine and personal flair using their own china, silver, crystal and centerpieces. During the cocktail hour, a random drawing will take place that pairs the guests with their chef for the evening.
