Here's a shot of the empty red carpet for Festa Italiana, the kick-off event for Los Angeles Food & Wine. Who will be walking it in a matter of hours? Giada, the host, plus all sorts of celebs, culinary personalities and chefs from Scarpetta, Mozza, Gusto, Angelini Osteria, Valentino and more. After eating so much pasta, we will no longer be red carpet ready, but it will definitely be worth it. Check back for the full report tomorrow.
