People, I cannot stress enough the importance of doing your stretches. This Sunday, LA Magazine will be hosting its 5th annual Food Event and you will want to be in it for the duration. Sure, you've been to big food events before, but did you ever have to outrun a camel?
This year will also be a celebration of Los Angeles magazine's 50th anniversary and the November "Mexican Food Lovers Guide" issue, so they will be pulling out all of the stops. In addition to unlimited food and wine, there will be cooking demos by top chefs as well as panels under the cool shade of a giant tree in the Conversation Lounge.
The event takes place on the grounds of the Saddlerock Ranch in the Malibu Hills. We have visited the ranch's tasting events and frequently enjoyed their Semler and Saddlerock wines. Plus they keep a large array of animals, so if you see a zebra, no, you haven't had to much wine.
Favorite restaurants represented include Loteria! Susan Feniger's Street, The Capital Grille, and the Foundry on Melrose. Demos and panels will be presented by big names like Neal Fraser, Mark Peel, Susan Feniger, and mixologist Julian Cox. Panels will be moderated by Carrie Kommers and Lesley Bargar Suter
General admission is $95 including parking. The event runs from 1pm to 4pm, and you will have a lot of ground to cover, so remember to hydrate, wear comfortable shoes, and once again - start working on those stretches. Buy tickets here!
