Proceeds to benefit the educational mission of Slow Food LA


The Slow Food convivium of LA is an educational support group comprised
of like-minded people who are concerned about
rediscovering and sustaining our diverse culinary traditions and the
purity of our food sources.
"We also believe in reviving, preserving and supporting our regional
artisan food and wine communities."

Sunstone Vineyard and Winery
The Rice family has established the Sunstone Vineyard and Winery in the
Santa Ynez valley. It is one of the largest organic
vineyard estates in Santa Barbara County. The vineyard overlooks the
Santa Ynez River, has ideal south-sloping exposure
and its sandy, rocky soil, its microclimate with early morning fog, warm
breezy afternoons and cool evenings make it a
perfect spot for organic grape growing. The vineyard planted to Rhone
and Bordeaux varietals, meets all California Certified
Organic Farmer (C.C.O.F.) standards.

Zax Restaurant
"It's California casual at its best: Zax has perfected the art of the
neighborhood bistro."
review by Irene Virbila, LA Times July 30th 2003

Zax in Brentwood is a contemporary American Bistro featuring the highly
acclaimed creations of Executive Chef Gavin
Portsmouth. Just 27 years old, Gavin Portsmouth has made his way west
from England. His new menu is inspired by many
of his favorite family recipes while at the same time upholding Zax's
reputation for rustic, contemporary American cuisine.
