Thirteenth Annual Celebrate the Craft @ The Lodge at Torrey Pines
Oct 25 @ 11:30 am – 3:00 pm

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 Thirteenth annual gathering to “Celebrate the Craft” will take place on Sunday, October 25th at The Lodge at Torrey Pines®. For the past thirteen 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.
