Friday's launch party may be sold out, but the festivities won't stop until Sunday afternoon at the Newport Beach Wine and Food Festival. Expect sommeliers, chefs and celebrities (Oh, my!) conducting demos and signing autographs. Oh, and the cuisine! Some of our favorites are cooking up a storm this weekend: Steven Kling of Five Crowns and SideDoor in Corona del Mar, powerhouses Casey Overton and Craig Strong from The Loft and Studio at Montage, Mathieu Royer of Boathouse Collective, Honda Center multi-tasker Jo-Jo Doyle, Yvon Goetz of The Winery and Selanne Steak Tavern's very own Joshua Severson. Smooth on sunscreen before you sip and savor.
