Santa Barbara Culinary Experience

Hot Seat: Founding Sponsors Dinner
Pull up a chair to a spectacular sponsors dinner—only a few seats left—in support of the inaugural Santa Barbara Culinary Experience, in partnership with The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts.

This exclusive dinner will take place on February 29, 2020, in the Pullman Room at The Lark Restaurant in Santa Barbara. Top chefs, including the Lark’s Jason Paluska, plus James Beard Foundation award winners Suzanne Goin, Michael Cimarusti and Nancy Silverton (who actually made Julia Child cry with happiness during one of Julia’s TV shows!) will cook a once in a lifetime dinner paired with local wines.

Cocktails will be served at 6:30pm, followed by a private, seated dinner, promising an intimate, memorable evening. A $10,000 commitment confirms two seats and a coveted role in the Founding Sponsors Circle of the Santa Barbara Culinary Experience, an inaugural, international culinary event slated for March 13–15, 2020, in Santa Barbara. As a founder, you will share our dedication to celebrating Julia Child’s spirit and legacy.
