Pacific Wine and Food Classic

The Pacific Wine and Food Classic will be a special event coming to the Newport Dunes for the first time ever beachside at the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort on Saturday, August 19 and Sunday, August 20, 2017. I am super excited to attend this event as there will be a variety of amazing OC chefs from all over the county as well as a great number of some top wineries!  This will definitely be the foodie event of the summer! Please use the discount code: 50 to get $50 off of any ticket when you purchase! 🙂

Pacific Wine & Food Classic’s menu is completely inspired by the summer season. Participating chefs will create dishes reminiscent of their favorite summer memories. Patron Tequila will offer “Patron Pops” as a fun summer treat as well as the ultimate Patron experience complete with Summer Margaritas. Bacardi, Effen Vodka and Makers Mark will also be serving refreshing cocktails to quench every thirst. Guests can enjoy incredible culinary entertainment on the Fisher & Paykel / DCS Culinary Stage, hosted by Simon Majumdar.

Food Network’s celebrity chef and judge Simon Majumdar, host of the inaugural classic commented, “I am thrilled to be invited to host the Pacific Wine & Food Classic in the idyllic setting of the Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort. I cannot think of a better location to highlight the chefs, winemakers and mixologists from one of the most exciting and fastest growing food scenes in the United States.”
