As usual, the Central Coast Food & Wine Celebration at Wally’s was one of the hottest food events in town over the weekend. Literally–it’s always a sweltering day, especially in the wine tent. But big fans provided cool breezes, the wines were copious, the food delicious, and lots of money was raised to help emerging winemakers go to school via the Michael Bonaccorsi Scholarship Fund. We like this annual event because it’s tailored, with just enough restaurants from Los Angeles and the Central Coast. This year’s theme: sliders. Burgers from Puck, shawarma from Mezze and barbecued pulled pork from Bouchon were just a few tasty bites. Feast your eyes on what everyone brought to the Wally’s parking lot in our slideshow.
