Chef Panel Named to the Life is Beautiful Festival

The Life is Beautiful festival this fall in Downtown Vegas is shaping up to be a culinary juggernaut. Today the festival named 11 chefs to its culinary advisory board, which plans to offer creative direction and programming for the culinary portion of the two-day music, food and arts festival.

Brothers Bruce and Eric Bromberg of Blue Ribbon Restaurants, most notably at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, head up the committee. Other chefs involved include:

· Kim Canteenwalla of Honey Salt

· Scott Conant of Scarpetta and D.O.C.G. Enoteca at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas

· Chris Cosentino of Incanto Restaurant and Boccalone Salumeria in San Francisco

· Hubert Keller of Fleur by Hubert Keller and Burger Bar at Mandalay Bay and Mandalay Place

· Donald Link of Herbsaint, Cochon and Cochon Butcher in New Orleans

· Michael Mina, who has his eponymous restaurant at Bellagio, American Fish at Aria, StripSteak at Mandalay Bay, Nobhill Tavern at MGM Grand and the coming Pub 1842 at MGM Grand

· Rick Moonen of RM Seafood at Mandalay Place

· Jet Tila of The Charleston in Santa Monica, Calif.

· Jonathan Waxman of Barbuto in New York City
The culinary portion of the festival plans to showcase 80 chefs spread out in a Moroccan-inspired bazaar of food mixed with merchandise stalls as well as demonstrations, competitions and a garden for wine, beer and spirits. Look for exclusive dining experiences prepared by either a single chef or a collaboration of chefs, winemakers and mixologists.
