The 2017 Ventura County Star Food & Wine Experience

Our 10-city USA Today Network Food & Wine Experience series continues - click on the highlighted link to see where we will be next.

Last weekend, I appeared at the Ventura County Star Food & Wine Experience at the historic Olivas Adobe Park, where the area’s only remaining Monterey-style adobe home from the Rancho era is located. I lead a cooking demo, hosted a wine tasting, conducted a book signing for my latest publication, “Slow Cooker”, and met hundreds of visitors who attended the event. It has been so nice to visit various cities and to see, first hand, how local chefs, mixologists and entrepreneurs are changing the food scene and inspiring others to appreciate local, organic farm to table foods. Vendor booths were spread throughout the property. Guests enjoyed stepping into our Martha Stewart Experience Pavilion, seeing samples from all my retail collections, and joining in on the Martha Stewart Crafts project at the Michaels Paint House.

It was a wonderful day in Ventura, California. Here are some photos - enjoy.
