California Life visits the Sunset Savor the Central Coast event of a lifetime... by Heather Dawson, California Life

Heather and the California Life crew headed to the Savor Central Coast event this weekend at the Historic Santa Margarita Ranch. The Savor Central Coast is a four day event that runs from 10am to 5pm from September 27th thru 30th 2012. The Main Event highlights the talents of winemakers, celebrity chefs, brew masters, fishermen, artisanal food producers, and many more artisans and producers from Ventura to Santa Cruz who call the Central Coast home. In-depth wine and cooking seminars are offered throughout the weekend and give attendees a deep-dive into a specific varietal or cooking technique. The Cost is $20 per seminar with purchase of your main event ticket. One of our favorite spots? The Vons Music and Tasting Garden where you can kick back with a locally brewed beer and some tunes of the local Central Coast music talents.

Some of the award winning chefs and restaurants include: Apple Farm, San Luis Obispo Gardens of Avila, San Luis Obispo Marisol at The Cliffs, Pismo Beach Madonna Inn, San Luis Obispo SeaVenture, Pismo Beach Vons Susan Feniger of Mandalay Bay Aarti Sequeir - Host of Food Networks Aarti Party Rick Moonen of Mandalay bay Ted Allen - Emmy Award Winner and host of Food Network's Chopped Alex Paguanga of Portals at Suncadia Lodge in Seattle Brian Alberg of The Red Lion Inn in Boston John Critchely of Urbana in Washington DC Vernon Morales of Town Hall - Salt House in San Francisco.
