Wine and Dine with San Diego Chefs at Celebrate the Craft

The Lodge at Torrey Pines will host its 12th Annual Celebrate the Craft on Sunday, October 12, a festival that showcases the region’s best chefs, produce, wine, and beer. It looks like an amazing afternoon and you have the chance to win a pair of tickets.

Tickets are $125 per person and include 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.

The event runs from 11:30 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. on the Arroyo Terrace overlooking Torrey Pines Golf Course.

Local Chefs

The Lodge Executive Chef Jeff Jackson will prepare the farm-to-table menu with an all-star lineup of chefs from around San Diego, including Pete Balistreri of Tender Greens, Matt Gordon of Urban Solace, Christian Graves of J Six, Jason Knibb of Nine-Ten, Carl Schroeder of Market Restaurant, and Monica Szepesy of Q’ero.

Local Farms

Produce will be provided by more than a dozen farms and ranches, including Coleman Farms of Carpinteria, Crows Pass Farms of Temecula, El Campito Farm of Descanso, McGrath Family Farms of Camarillo, and Suzie’s Farm of San Diego.

And, Wine!

The Lodge Sommelier Paul Krikorian will feature several vintners, including Palmina and Brewer-Clifton of Santa Barbara, Falkner of Temecula, and Nickel & Nickel of Oakville. A select number of breweries will also be on hand, including AleSmith Brewing Company.

(And, remember to see why I think The Spa at The Lodge at Torrey Pines is an excellent place to spend the day complete with lunch at A.R. Valentien.)
