Cooking For Solutions at the Monterey Bay Aquarium 2013

If you have ever wondered what the best food event of the year is, the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Cooking for Solutions annual event ranks pretty darn high – if not right at the top of the list.

This year will be my third year as one of the guest chef’s at what they call their “grand culinary celebration,” an awesome 3 day event, focused on sustainability and raising awareness about the health of the oceans.

I’ll be cooking, speaking and signing my cookbook over the weekend on the Aquarium deck (with the ocean as a backdrop) and I’ll also be teaming up with one of my favorite chocolate companies, TCHO, and their head chocolatier, Brad, to do a seminar on how their chocolate goes from pod to my delicious pot de creme and other tasty desserts (tastings included)!

There are so many wonderful events to choose from throughout the weekend: from galas, to trips to vineyards, to special breakfasts, to food and wine adventures.

Super-sous, Latte and I will be there and I hope you will consider coming too. Whether you’re an adventurous foodie traveling on your own or with your family, Monterey + the Aquarium + this event = perfection.
