The Brander Vineyard in Los Olivos will host its popular Bouillabaisse Festival to benefit Hospice of Santa Barbara. Last held in 2006, the absence of this beloved event left “foodies” all over California sobbing into their Sauvignon Blanc yearning for the return of this incomparable afternoon of sunshine, wine, music and fabulous bouillabaisse. Bouillabaisse, a delectable seafood soup, is the French equivalent of cioppino. Variations on the recipe take center stage at this friendly competition featuring some of the Central Coast’s finest chefs. The event, long associated with Fred Brander and his beautiful winery and vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley, is once again being revived as a fundraiser for Hospice of Santa Barbara.
Date: Sunday, August 26, 2012
Time: 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.
Location: The Brander Vineyard, 2401 North Refugio Road, Los Olivos
All proceeds benefit Hospice of Santa Barbara.
