A Sneak Peek at Some of the Delicious Dishes to Try at This Year’s Food Event

From pea fritters to barbacoa tacos, there’s something for everyone at our annual culinary bacchanal in Malibu

On October 13, nearly 40 of L.A.’s best restaurants—and one famously photogenic giraffe—will gather at Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu for our 14th annual Food Event. Chefs including Keith Corbin of Alta Adams and Vartan Abgaryan of Yours Truly will be on hand for live cooking demos, as will a slew of beverage brands to keep you sipping in style.
