Our December issue photo cover shoot behind-the-scenes at Southern Glazer’s Wine and Spirits of Nevada in the Wine & Spirits Academy with J.R. Starkus and LVF&B Professional Photographer Audrey Dempsey making it all look good! 

The San Diego Bay Wine + Food Festival was held recently and our Food & Beverage Professional Senior Editor/Publisher Mike Fryer was there covering it all firsthand, as you can see from this picture taken at the Baja Cali Brunch on San Diego Bay. Is he easy to spot with his Panama Jack’s hat?

Picturd here are LVFNBPro Editorial Director Bob Barnes with iconic Chef Thomas Keller, who hosted a party at his Bouchon restaurant at The Venetian to celebrate the selection of the 2019 Américaine du Bocuse d’Or USA team.
