    1. 12th Annual Celebrate the Craft!
      11:30 am – 3:00 pm

      From event website:

      Celebrate the Craft

      California is a state rich in extraordinary beauty and agricultural abundance, with a tradition of craft and culinary innovation. That’s why gourmets converge each year in beautiful La Jolla, California for a unique celebration of California’s beauty, bounty, and craftsmanship.

      The twelfth annual gathering to “Celebrate the Craft” will take place on Sunday, October 12th at The Lodge at Torrey Pines®. For the past twelve years, “Celebrate the Craft” has been one of Southern California’s premier showcases for regionally grown ingredients and innovative cooking and winemaking.

      As in years past, the celebration featured the finest food artisans from across California’s broad culinary spectrum, which demonstrated, discussed, showcased, and tasted their way through the vast array of premium food products available throughout the state. “Celebrate the Craft” delights anyone eager for food prepared with natural ingredients and careful craftsmanship. “The growing season runs year-round in our neck of Southern California, and the local agricultural community takes full advantage, affording us a unique variety of the freshest produce,” said Jeff Jackson, Executive Chef at A.R. Valentien at The Lodge at Torrey Pines and an innovator of fresh, regional cuisine. “With a daily abundance of fresh food to work with, it’s little wonder our local chefs are so creative.” The food and wine portion of the festival reaches its peak on Sunday, with a full day of cooking demonstrations by participating chefs from San Diego’s premier restaurants. Growers, vintners, and culinary artisans from some of California’s most renowned farms, bakeries, wineries, and confectioners were on hand to share their skill and enthusiasm. The Lodge at Torrey Pines, San Diego’s premier Five-Diamond resort, embodies the very best of Pacific Coastal living. Designed in the Arts & Crafts tradition of architects Charles and Henry Greene, The Lodge is a loving homage of California Craftsman architecture, emphasizing authentic materials and craftsmanship, respect for the natural landscape, and integration of indoor and outdoor living.

      From SLOW FOOD USA Website:

      The Olympics of Food

      By Ellen Freytag, Slow Food USA Delegate

      Individuals from all over the world who are passionate about good, clean and fair foodmake a pilgrimage to Turin/Torino every two years to be a part of the world’s largest food and wine fairSalone del Gusto, and the concurrent world meeting of food communities, Terra Madre.

      The best way I know to concisely describe Slow Food’s biggest international event is to tell you that it’s an Olympics for Food — except instead of the competitive “Faster, Higher, Stronger,” the motto of this Food Olympics is “Slower, Slower, Slower.” The convening begins with an opening ceremony, held in Turin’s Olympic Stadium. Official delegates from more than 100 countries gather to represent the very best of what their country’s food systems have to offer.
