Sitting down with Joël Robuchon
The 4th Annual "Vegas Uncork'd" is underway, with culinary talent from all over the globe descending upon Sin City. The annual event, always held Mother's Day Weekend, is presented by Bon Appétit Magazine, and brings together chefs, sommeliers, cocktail experts and tastemakers from all over the world; a series of classes, seminars and special dinners is going on simultaneously at six different casino properties.
The event mirrors, in some ways, the culinary events in Pebble Beach, Aspen and Chicago. Part of the reason is exposure to a loyal audience of foodies and wine enthusiasts, but the other reason is tourism.
