Bacon & Barrels at Saarloos and Sons Field will be held July 19-21 in Los Olivos, California in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley. 4-course Dinner is on the 19th, and the festival itself takes place on 7/20.
Bacon-philes unite and enjoy a fun-filled weekend featuring creative bacon dishes from the best chefs on the Central Coast, and sample from barrels of the best in wine, bourbon, and craft beer. We’ll kick off the weekend with an all bacon dinner under the stars in Los Olivos. At Saturday’s main event, the hottest chefs from the finest local restaurants will prepare and serve small plates starring bacon in it’s most inventive forms. The best mixologists, brewers, and wineries will quench your thirst with refreshing bacon-based and bacon-inspired cocktails and brews. Bacon Heaven will include artisan and local vendors, all bacon food trucks, down home music, and a piggy petting zoo. Bring the whole family, for a fun-filled day of culinary and libatious adventures, interactive demonstrations, and more!
To celebrate special achievement in the bacon arts, one Chef and one Mixologist will be named the 2013 Jefe del Porko. It’s pretty much our Bacon Oscars, and not one to be missed!
