Chef Duff will join celebrity emcee Oded Fehr, from “The Mummy” film franchise, and other culinary experts as they judge the top chef creations from among Festival exhibitors who sign up for the Yummies Top Chef Culinary Competition. The judges will award first, second, and third place honors in both Savory and Sweet categories. Entries presented by the competitors must be the same as the samples offered to guests at the Festival.

The Wine, Food & Brew Festival will take place on Sunday, June 7, from 1:00 to 5:00 PM at California State University Channel Islands in Camarillo, California, and will feature more than 85 restaurants and 150 wines, brews, and beverages.

Tickets are available at $125 for General Admission ($150 at the door, if available) and $250 for VIP tickets.
