Bacara Resort & Spa Presents: Santa Barbara Food & Wine Weekend 2017


Join us April 7-9, 2017 for the 4thd Annual Santa Barbara Food & Wine Weekend - three days celebrating Julia Child’s lifelong love of eating well and Santa Barbara’s coastal bounty. The event weekend's beneficiary, The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts, was created by Julia in 1995 to continue to advance matters she valued. The Foundation’s mission is to honor and further Julia’s legacy, which centers on the importance of understanding where food comes from, what makes for good food, and the value of cooking. Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, the Foundation is a grant-making, non-profit which primarily funds research and scholarships for professional culinary training as well as other activities in the fields of gastronomy and the culinary arts. Through the organizations and programs it supports, the Foundation continues to foster Julia’s lifelong love of learning, her far-reaching impact as a teacher and mentor, and her passion for gastronomy and the culinary arts.
