Real Men Cook!
Flag is Up Farms at 901 East Highway 246 in Solvang
This event, often referred to as “The Local Party of the Year,” raises much-needed funds for Santa Ynez Valley arts education nonprofit.
Up to 60 amateur chefs will show off their culinary skills as they serve up tastes of their carefully prepared dishes. Many chefs return each year to participate in this fun event and some of the delightful dishes that have made appearances in the past are: Southern Fried Alligator, BBQ Chicken Strips, and Black Bean and Chorizo Stuffed Chiles and Killer Brownies. Guests enjoy unlimited samplings of food and wine/beer. Lucas & Lewellen and 30 Central Coast vintners and breweries will be on hand pouring their wines and beers to complement the chefs’ creations. Guests can sample food from a variety of categories, including hot and cold appetizers, entrees, salads, breads, salads, desserts and more.
Lucas & Lewellen wines will be paired to a special offering by Lucas & Lewellen Wine Club Member and chef, Ed Ranzenbach, so put in an extra vote for him if you're stuck!
