The Saturday evening Grand Tasting event has something for everyone.
Adjacent to the Mammoth Campus of Cerro Coso Community College, the Grand Tasting takes place outdoors in the Edison Pavilion. Nearly 20 wineries will be pouring 100+ exceptional wines for you to taste while several local Mammoth Lakes fine dining restaurants will be presenting their best dish for you to enjoy at the same time. These chefs will be competing for the people’s choice award of “Best Dish,” so come prepared to vote for your favorite.
Live entertainment this year includes a Celebrity Chef Battle where two teams consisting of four chefs (one pair from Mammoth, the other from Los Angeles) compete on stage. They will be given a mystery basket for the main ingredients augmented by a common pantry of staple items. Each team will have 25 minutes to create their most spectacular dish to be judged by a panel of experts who will determine a winner based on taste, creativity, and presentation.
Saturday evening culminates with a live auction where attendees can bid on several enticing auction items ranging from a collection of wines poured at the Grand Tasting (over 100 bottles!) to vacation trips sure to be on everyone’s bucket list.
We look forward to celebrating the 5th Annual Mammoth Food & Wine Experience with you!
