This Sunday from 1 pm - 4 pm Los Angeles Magazine will host its fifth annual Food Event at the Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu. The event brings together tons of restaurants and wineries for an all you can eat all you can drink extravaganza. Over 30 restaurants including Akasha, Westside Tavern, Palate Food + Wine and Michael's will be cooking up signature bites and approximatley 40 wineries will be represented including Ampelos, Qupe, Surfrider and Saddlerock Wines (which is produced on the site of Sunday's event).
In addition to the bountiful food and wine there will be several chef/bartender panels and demonstrations including participants such as Julian Cox of Rivera, Susan Feniger of The Border Grill, Mark Gold of Eva, Piero Selvaggio of Valentino and Rory Hermann of Bouchon. Andrew Steiner of Andrew's Cheese Shop in Santa Monica will discuss wine and cheese pairings and for the beer afficionados there will be a panel on LA's craft brewing scene including representatives from Eagle Rock and Craftsman Breweries.
I have it on good authority that there will be llamas and zebras roaming the property, so if you want to combine your safari and culinary passions than this is the event for you!
This is a 21 and over event, so no babies or kids (regardless of whose they are). Tickets to the event are $95 in advance or $100 with a subscription to Los Angeles Magazine. Tickets at the door are $110. There are limited tickets remaining. For further details about the event, participating restaurants and wineries, click here. To purchase tickets click here.
