Lifestyle Celebrity Rachel Hollis to Emcee Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival's Yummie Culinary Competition

CAMARILLO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/18/17 -- The 24th Annual Casa Pacifica Angels Wine, Food & Brew Festival, scheduled for Sunday, June 4, 2017, will proudly feature the 7th annual Yummie Culinary Competition. The Yummie contest determines the best of the best among Festival exhibitors -- Ventura County's top restaurants and chefs -- in an action-packed showdown.

The Festival is thrilled to welcome Rachel Hollis as the celebrity emcee for the 2017 Yummie Top Chef Culinary Competition. Rachel is the founder of the popular lifestyle website The Chic Site, and author of Amazon Bestselling fiction series, "The Girls." Rachel is also an accomplished event planner for Hollywood's elite, including Bradley Cooper, Al Gore, and Jennifer Love Hewitt, among many others. Casa Pacifica is excited to have Rachel welcoming the Festival's top chef exhibitors as they fire up their stations and compete for first, second, or third place in both Savory and Sweet categories, as well as narrating the exciting action as the judges determine their favorites.

Each year the Yummie competition is judged by a panel of Celebrity Culinary Judges comprised of television and print media personalities, food editors and columnists based on which chef's dish they feel is outstanding, or the "yummiest." Casa Pacifica is excited to have the Vice President and Corporate Executive Chef of NBC Universal Studios Hollywood, Chef Eric Kopelow, CEC, sitting on the panel of judges for this year's competition. He will be joining Chef Masa Shimakawa, Chef de Cuisine of ONYX at the Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village; Dan Paustian, comedian chef, writer and MasterChef Top Five Contestant; Master Chef competitor, fashion stylist, and creative consultant, Olivia Crouppen; Lisa McKinnon, food columnist for the Ventura County Star; and Rita Moran, food critic for the Ventura County Star. The judges will use their expert knowledge and tasting skills to find the best entry in each category judged on flavor, presentation, innovation, and quality. The Yummie culinary competition winners will earn bragging rights and receive a fabulous prize package including Le Creuset cookware and air time from Gold Coast Broadcasting.
