The first Los Angeles Food & Wine festival will take place Oct. 13-16. The event will feature 100 celebrity chefs, 300 wines and more than 70 events.

From a clam bake to sampling caviar, a myriad of events are planned, with tickets priced from $100 to $500.  There will be cooking demos, lunches, dinners and after-parties.  The event will kick off with a red carpet premiere at the Nokia Plaza, where Hollywood celebrities and celebrity chefs will come together to taste 200 different wines.  The festival culminates with Wolfgang Puck's brunch and charity auction on Oct. 16.

You can expect to see L.A. chefs such as Sang Yoon, Nancy Silverton and Josiah Citrin. Other notable chefs that will be attending include Daniel Boulud, Masaharu Morimoto and  Tom Colicchio.

A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Los Angeles chapter of Meals on Wheels.  Tickets can be purchased online.

Update: An earlier version of this post said Ludo Lefebvre and Thomas Keller would be attending the festival however this does not reflect the current list of events.
