In its sixth year, Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit’s signature Grand Tasting event set new attendance records. Selling out in advance for the first time, more than 2,500 people descended on the Garden of the Gods pool at Caesars Palace. Guests sampled delectable tastes from Las Vegas’ most celebrated chefs and restaurants.
Taking center stage were legendary talents from Bellagio, Caesars Palace, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and Mandalay Bay. Making his debut appearance at Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit, Gordon Ramsay delighted crowds with his beef Wellington and sticky toffee pudding. Guy Savoy, José Andrés, Hubert Keller, Nobu Matsuhisa, David Myers, Scott Conant, Michel Richard, Costas Spiliadis, Todd English, Rick Moonen, Charlie Palmer, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger and others also prepared favorites from their popular Las Vegas restaurants.
“I’m thrilled that we not only had the most people ever attend the Grand Tasting but we also had more restaurants participate than ever before — making this a bigger showcase for Las Vegas than in any other year,” said Bon Appétit Editor in Chief Adam Rapoport.
