I can’t wait for LA Mag the Food Event 2012 in Malibu Hills

Spread the love

I’m counting down the days for the 7th Annual The Food Event at the Vineyards of Saddlerock Ranch in the Malibu Hills from 2 – 5pm.  Los Angles Magazine’s The Food Event 2012 is always the MUST attend intimate gathering of foodies and chefs showing off their creative genius in the most beautiful setting!  Everytime I see the Saddlerock Ranch in the Malibu Hills it makes me want to have a wedding surrounded by grapes, blue skies and of course some of the best wine in Southern California!  This year we get unlimited food from 40 restaurants, wine, spirits and treats galore all in a fun packed afternoon.  So make sure you come hungry and have a designated driver!  

Check out the details of this event that is grown up friendly and perfect to get not only your flirt on but your GRUB on!!! See you Sunday!
