On Sunday, October 16, Los Angeles magazine celebrated the 11th annual epicurean extravaganza.
Nearly 3,000 guests gathered at the picturesque Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu to indulge in delectable tastes from nearly 40 of L.A.’s top restaurants, hand-selected by our James Beard Award-winning editorial team. Guests sipped on over 20 additional wineries from a variety of California vineyards along with handcrafted cocktails from Glenfiddich, Hendrick’s Gin, Don Julio®, and Ketel One®. The Belgian Beer Café served ice cold pints of Stella Artois.
The Chef Demonstration Tent was hosted by A Martinez of KPCC and L.A.’s best chefs including Evan Funke, Valerie Gordon, Ted Hopson and Marcel Vigneron shared their recipes and cooking tips. Attendees were gifted personalized tote bags as they admired the first-ever INFINITI QX30 crossover and the all-new Q60 in the INFINITI Lounge. After consuming endless bites, many recharged their devices in the Equinox Rejuvenation Lounge, sipped on coffee from Peerless Coffee & Tea, enjoyed a photo booth sponsored by Zo’etic Travel, and honed their artistic talents in the Experience San Luis Obispo tent. Following the event, guests headed to the official after-party at The Malibu Café at Calamigos Ranch to enjoy bites and cocktails made with Hendrick’s Gin.
