The Seventh Annual Pebble Beach Food & Wine event will be held from April 10-13, 2014. This four-day Foodie celebration brings together more than 75 prominent chefs and over 200 acclaimed wineries and distinguished winemakers from around the world to Pebble Beach for a world-class display of epicurean delights. In addition to cooking demonstrations led by some of the world’s most talented chefs and vertical tastings from the world's top wine producers, unique dining experiences make this a must attend annual event for anyone serious about food and wine.
We attended The Grand Tasting Event last year and our overall favorite taste was the Dominican Beef made by Culinary Director MICHAEL ROMANO from Union Square Café in NYC. A close second was the Coriander-Crusted Big Eye Tuna, Avocado-Pickled Vegetable Salad, Kumquat Vinaigrette created by Chef Adam Keough from Absinthe in San Francisco. We also loved the Crayfish Beignets/ Smoked Duck, Cashew butter & Pepper on Sweet Potato Brioche made by Chef Susan Spicer from Bayona in New Orleans. The Pork Terrine, Glazed Eel, Pickled Mustard Seed made by Chef Angie Berry from Asiate NYC was also outstanding. Another fabulous taste was the Sea Urchin Panna Cotta with Green Apple & King Crab made by Chef Abram Bissell from The NoMad NYC. The Rocky Mountain Elk Carpaccio Bulgur Taboulleh Salad, Stone Ground Mustard Aioli created by Chef Kelly Liken from Vail was also delicious. Our favorite desserts were the Assorted Tout Sweet Macaroons and Belgium Chocolate Extravaganza from Madame Chocolate Hasty Torres.
