“You might imagine that if one were to have the good fortune of purchasing a vineyard in California, it would not typically spark interest in a place more than 5,000 away.”

“Here is why I felt the need to visit Burgundy. Sanford Winery is home to the oldest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines in the Santa Barbara area, dating to 1972. It also possesses a magical and unique confluence of climate and soil conditions – remarkably like those of Burgundy. And once our family owned Sanford, I wanted to more deeply understand Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the two iconic varieties of Bourgogne.” – John Terlato

Michael PuglisiSanta Ana’s The Electric City Butcher, Chef Michael Puglisi, is part of MaxLove Project’s Gold Apron Society.

They are holding the 2nd annual “Farm-to-Fork Dinner ” at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 15th at Tanaka Farms in Irvine.

Farm to Fork 2016 marks the launch of the Gold Apron Society, an exclusive community of chefs, restauranteurs and real-food advocates dedicated to raising funds for culinary medicine and cancer research.

MaxLove project’s inaugural Farm to Fork Dinner in 2015 raised $35,000 to benefit children’s cancer survivorship research and support programs. The event is the organization’s largest annual fundraiser.

This year, the new Gold Apron Society will raise funds for the creation of the first Culinary Medicine Center in Orange County, where local chefs will educate doctors, nurses and the public on the healing potential of fierce foods.

MaxLove Project and the Gold Apron Society seek to raise $250,000 to launch the “nutrition kitchen,” with plans to build it at Tanaka Farms. The eventual ambitious goal of the Gold Apron Society is to expand nationwide and fund a Culinary Medicine Center in every children’s hospital across the country.

Chef Mike joins us with all the farm-fresh details.
