Santa Barbara Sip & Savor

Sip & Savor Santa Barbara

Santa Barbara County is a dream destination for anyone who loves food—and let's face it, who doesn't? This American Riviera® town is chock-full of tantalizing ingredients, from soup to nuts—make that homemade organic soup and locally harvested nuts! Fresh-picked fruits and veggies from the famed farmers markets (eight each week, all year round), sustainable fresh-off-the-boat seafood, chicken and beef from local ranchers, artisanal cheeses and chocolates, freshly-roasted coffees—add to this the well-stocked specialty markets and irresistible bakeries, and you've got a full (and delicious) plate. And how about pairing it all with the world-class wines produced right in our back yard in the Santa Ynez Valley—easily accessible along Santa Barbara's unique Urban Wine Trail—or with award-winning beers from the area's microbreweries?

So go ahead and explore—take a guided culinary or wine tour or a cooking class, hit a food or wine festival, visit a farm or winery. And don't forget the top-notch restaurants —hmmm, what will it be? A sunny beachside cafe, casual-chic bistro, authentic taqueria or trattoria, or a swank white-tablecloth dining room ... the choices are seemingly endless. If you want to make the most of your culinary excursion, consider a visit during October, when Santa Barbara celebrates epicure.sb —31 days of celebrating the best of the area's cuisine, libations and culture!

You may have seen the spotlight on Santa Barbara's culinary culture on the Food Network and in the movies Sideways and It's Complicated. And it's no wonder that fervent foodies from beloved Julia Child to Iron Chef Cat Cora have made Santa Barbara home—there's a sense of fun and adventure along with a serious respect for savoring good food with family and friends as an important part of enjoying the good life. So take a sip, take a bite ... and savor your serving! Discover suggested itineraries, regional cuisine, seafood delights, special events and more on this site.
