Wolfgang Puck joins Audi once again, to celebrate the 5th Annual “An Evening on the Beach”, benefiting St. Vincent Meals on Wheels. Hailed as “the best party on the beach,” by Wolfgang Puck, a long time Meals on Wheels partner, the evening began as part of Puck’s 28th annual American Wine and Food Festival in 2010, and is now celebrated as a single event to capture the allure of a “toes in the sand” food and wine experience.
Featuring some of LA’s best chefs, the event’s guests relax with tempting morsels off the grill, vintner tastings, specialty cocktails, great music, and a crackling fire as the summer sun sets over the ocean.
Dress is casual, shoes are optional, and proceeds will help to provide the over 4,000 meals needed to feed homebound seniors and other vulnerable residents across the Los Angeles area every day.
This year’s chef line-up includes:
Gino Angelini of Angelini Osteria
Genevieve Gergis of Bestia
Evan Funke of Bucato
Ray England of Craft Restaurant
James Rosselle of elle cakes
Thomas Lim of Goldie’s
Sally Camacho and Jason McClain of The Jonathan Club

There will be special presentations by Laura Chenel Goat Cheese, Marin French Cheese, Great Hill Blue, Di Stefano Cheese, and Jonathan Graham of Compartes Chocolate.
Specialty cocktails will be served by mixologist Marcos Tello, in addition to a martini bar hosted by Jordan Catapano of This Girl Walked into a Bar, featuring Petrossian caviar stuffed olives, Chopin Vodka and No. 209 Gin.
