Anne at Bacara FM (2)It was an enormous pleasure to take part  in the Bacara Food & Wine Weekend with the Julia Child Foundation. Over the last few days, I’ve had the opportunity to see old friends, meet new ones as well as take part in some very interesting panels. I tasted wines from the scenic Santa Barbara region, enjoyed a Santa Maria-style barbecue with Frank Ostini of the Hitching Post restaurant. I tasted and even gave a tour through the pop-up Market featuring local growers food vendors.

It is with many thanks to both the Julia Child Foundation and the Bacara Resort that this celebration became a reality. In a sea of artisan food, hand crafted cocktails, local wine and plenty of smiling faces, I know that Julia would have applauded their efforts. I do hope to make it back next year! Cheers, Anne
