“Inspired by the mixture of fun and learning about food and drink for which Julia Child, a longtime resident and fan of Santa Barbara, advocated so passionately, the Santa Barbara Culinary Experience (SBCE) in partnership with the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts welcomes visitors and the local community from March 13th to 16th to celebrate the bounty of what is grown in and around this beautiful region. “Join us to celebrate, learn and invoke Julia’s spirit, while shining a light on Santa Barbara’s culinary, hospitality, tourism and artisan communities.””
“The busy Weekend of activities includes Julia Child-themed events created by local hotels, restaurants and other establishments plus cooking classes, panels, and Q & As with local and nationally recognized chefs, ranchers, ﬁshermen, farmers and winemakers. Also events for children and their families about the science and innovation of food. Finally behind-the-scenes tours of wineries, ranches, gardens, ﬁshing and other culinary attractions and much more!”
