Bouillabaisse Festival

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 
Cost: $90 All proceeds benefit Hospice of Santa Barbara.

** Note to readers: I was contacted by an PR Firm to put up on this blog what they wanted me to convey to you about this terrific festival. I find it a bit ethically tenuous as they are getting paid for having ME distribute their press releases. I am NOT getting money to share this information. I am NOT getting free tickets to this event. 

I put up this information because Hospice is a wonderful organization...and this festival really is a wonderful event that more people should know about. Just wanted you to know.
