This year's event theme is LOCAL INGREDIENTS because Santa Barbara's are some of the best. And we're not just talking about the fresh flavors you'll find at the farmers market or the bounty of bold brews and craft cocktails that await you throughout the year; we're referring to all of the local love that goes into creating an unbeatable mix of Ocean, Earth, Celebration and Cultivation that will feed your soul. These are the cornerstones of what makes Santa Barbara so incredible, which is why they're the keynotes of epicure.sb 2012:
|OCEAN: The waters of the Santa Barbara Channel produce some of the best sustainably harvested seafood around and the true-bluebackdrop inspires a variety of artistic endeavors, coastal cuisine and the occasional craft cocktail that will quickly turn any Dark and Stormy day into an Ocean Breeze.|
|EARTH: The fact that Santa Barbara produces world-class wine and locavore favorites is no secret. It's more than enough to inspire these terra-rific events. |
CELEBRATION: Here, the party never really ends, but it definitely culminates in October with a variety of live performances, musical events, art fairs, festivals and community gatherings.
CULTIVATION: Nurture your epicuriousity with a culinary class, or perhaps a seminar on farm-to-bar or growing your own garden. October opportunities for furthering your epicure knowledge are as bountiful as the lemon trees of Goleta.
