The twelfth annual gathering to “Celebrate the Craft” will take place on Sunday, October 12th at The Lodge at Torrey Pines®. For the past twelve years, “Celebrate the Craft” has been one of Southern California’s premier showcases for regionally grown ingredients and innovative cooking and winemaking. Tickets are $125 and are available for purchase here. The price includes food, wine, beer, taxes, service charges, gratuity, and valet parking. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Slow Food Urban San Diego, which raises public awareness, & improves access, and encourages the enjoyment of foods that are local, seasonal, and sustainable.
As in years past, the celebration will feature the finest food artisans from across California’s broad culinary spectrum, who will demonstrate, discuss, showcase, and taste their way through the vast array of premium food products available throughout the state. Celebrate the Craft delights anyone eager for food prepared with natural ingredients and careful craftsmanship. The growing season runs year-round in our neck of Southern California, and the local agricultural community takes full advantage, affording us a unique variety of the freshest produce,” said Jeff Jackson, Executive Chef at A.R. Valentien at The Lodge at Torrey Pines and an innovator of fresh, regional cuisine. “With a daily abundance of fresh food to work with, it’s little wonder our local chefs are so creative.
The food and wine portion of the festival reaches its peak on Sunday, with a full day of cooking demonstrations by participating chefs from San Diego’s premier restaurants. Growers, vintners, and culinary artisans from some of California’s most renowned farms, bakeries, wineries, and confectioners were on hand to share their skill and enthusiasm. The Lodge at Torrey Pines, San Diego’s premier Five-Diamond resort, embodies the very best of Pacific Coastal living. See more information at Riviera San Diego.
