LOS ANGELES— This weekend's Los Angeles Times Festival of Books features its fair share of chef and cookbook events, so the newspaper has rounded them all up in this handy guide. Suzanne Goin, Scott Conant, Roy Choi, and Hugh Acheson are among those participating in live cooking demonstrations; in Choi's case, he'll hit the stage for an "intimate interview" with LAT's Jonathan Gold.
