Let’s break out the bubbly for the Bay Area! May 6 was a big night for hometown food heroes as several local chefs, restaurants and wine pros took home the gold at the 2013 James Beard Awards. Known as the Oscars of the food world, the James Beard Awards are the nation’s most coveted culinary honor, and Bay Area nominees hardly went home empty handed. From the California dim-sum-style State Bird Provisions to the French-influenced master Christopher Kostow to the trailblazing legend Michael Mina, this year’s winners represent diverse points on the American culinary landscape. Join us for an exclusive discussion with the Bay’s awardees and find out why the Bay Area is a great place in which to cook and eat.

General admission tickets include a reception with the winners before the panel, with cocktails and James Beard-inspired hors d'oeuvres. Then, after the panel, 25 guests will join us for a celebratory 3-course meal (with wine pairings) at the iconic Restaurant Michael Mina, for the chance to break bread with the best chefs in the country. Dinner tickets go on sale on July 17th.
