The Food Event 2014 is Los Angeles magazine’s ninth annual culinary extravaganza. The day features great chefs, culinary experts, sommeliers, plus unlimited food, wine, and spirits—all in one place, for one price. Watch celebrity chefs in the demonstration kitchen and epicurean experts participate in panels in the Conversation Lounge. Restaurants are hand selected by our James Beard award-winning dine editor. The incredible rural setting, Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, home to Semler and Saddlerock wines, sets this culinary event above others. The ranch boasts acres and acres of natural beauty, vineyards, rolling hills, animals like llamas and zebras, and space to spread out and relax for a true escape from the city, but with just a short drive.
This year’s participants include Angelini Osteria, Animal, Barbrix, Bestia, Black Market, Bourbon Steak, Bucato Restaurant, Cliff’s Edge, Cooks County, Crossroads, CUT, Dia de Campo, Drago Centro, Faith and Flower, FarmShop, Fishing With Dynamite, Four Seasons Westlake Village, Girasol, Goldie’s, Jitlada Thai Restaurant, Joe’s Restaurant, Lemonade, Little Sister, Loteria Grill, Malibu Pier Restaurant & Bar, Manhattan Beach Post, McConnell’s Ice Cream, Michael’s Santa Monica, Petty Cash, Playa Provisions, Salt’s Cure, Short Cake, Sotto, Spago, Tar and Roses, Saddle Peak Lodge, The Front Yard, The Strand House, Union, and 9021Pho.
With so many great restaurants at this event, it’s difficult for us to highlight which ones you must-see, which is why we recommend arriving early and tasting each one!
