The 2014 Santa Barbara Culinary Arts cookbook was so successful–sold out in 3 months!–that the nonprofit is publishing a second edition with new recipes and in hardcover. It will debut at the gala cookbook launch party Saturday, October 24th from noon – 3 pm at the Bacara Resort & Spa.
Enjoy food samples from around 20 chefs and have them sign your cookbook! Restaurants, caterers and food purveyors that will be bringing food and/or signing books include (full list forthcoming):
Bacara Resort & Spa Chef Johan Denizot, Bella Vista at Four Seasons the Biltmore, Belmond El Encanto, Deux Bakery, Hitching Post II, Jane restaurant, Louise’s Kitchen Table, Lorraine Lim, Chef Michael Hutchings of Michael’s Catering, Santa Barbara Tamales-To-Go, Chef Stephane Rapp, and Trattoria Uliveto.
Premium wine tasting with the wineries that include the Foley Food & Wine Society, Westerly, Santa Barbara Winery and the Hitching Post II.
This event is a fundraiser and proceeds benefit our endowment of the Santa Barbara Culinary Arts Scholarship in Honor of Julia Child.
