California Escapade Wine Dinner

Thursday, August 25, 2022 - 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Dining Special, Featured Events, Member Event


California cuisine is an eclectic yet simple style of cooking, this culinary tradition stresses the importance of straightforward meal preparation and healthy, light dishes. Staples of California cuisine include fresh produce, seafood, and lean meats. The cuisine embraces a variety of ethnic foods and cooking techniques endemic to the Golden State’s diverse population. Chefs specializing in this tradition may borrow from Asian, Mexican, European, and South American food cultures, creating American and ethnic fusion dishes like barbecue chicken pizza or Chinese chicken salad.
