Share with us in celebrating the diverse expressions of our earth’s bounty. Take a bite of pure summer!

After a delicious Hors d’oeuvre reception and silent auction, dine family-style under the stars, feasting on courses created by extraordinary women chefs who will showcase local foods. The meal will be paired with wines made by some of California’s great women winemakers. Local artisans that are passionate about food will work hand in hand with the chefs to bring forth the best of the season.

This is the largest event the Orange County Chapter of AIWF hosts each year. The proceeds help fund the 4th and 5th grade food and nutrition educational program, Days of Taste®, as well as culinary and wine scholarships for Orange County students pursuing careers in these fields. Both the Newport Harbor High School and Orange Coast College culinary teams have benefited from AIWF Orange County Scholarships and have recently won 1st place in their respective Regional Culinary Arts Competitions.
