MARCH 31 – APRIL 3, 2016
A tradition that embodies the sophistication and refinement of the world’s finest culinary talents and restaurants in the world is set to arrive this spring for a once-in-a-lifetime food and wine celebration.
 WHAT: Pebble Beach Food & Wine, the preeminent food and wine festival attracting the most revered and talented chefs from across the globe, returns to Pebble Beach Resorts for the ninth year in a row, March 31 – April 3, 2016. Presented with founding partners FOOD & WINE and Lexus, Pebble Beach Food & Wine is set to feature three-nights and four-days of acclaimed culinary and wine tastings, cooking demos, and some of the most exclusive dining experiences available in the world set against the storied backdrop of Pebble Beach, drawing well-traveled glitterati and gourmands.

A gastronomic delight of discovery, in past years the star-studded cast has included celebrated chefs such as Tyler Florence, Tom Colicchio, Cat Cora, Jacques Pepin, Daniel Boulud, Dominique Crenn, Curtis Stone, Thomas Keller, Iron Chef Masaharu Morimoto, Guy Fieri, Ming Tsai, Fabio Viviani, Duff Goldman, Carla Hall, Andrew Zimmern, Eric Ripert, Grant Achatz, as well as local favorites including John Cox, Matt Accarrino, Peter Armellino, and William Werner to name a few. A curated itinerary tees off with a chef golf tournament on the legendary Pebble Beach golf course before a weekend of intimate wine receptions, dinners, and al fresco tippling beckons guests for a memorable and unparalleled culinary extravaganza comprised of over 100 chefs, 300 wines, seminars, and well-orchestrated cooking demonstrations.

Guests at the elegant The Inn at Spanish Bay will have unparalleled access to culinary
icons as they find themselves enjoying a tipple fireside with the world’s most acclaimed
chefs, including James Beard and Michelin star honorees, FOOD & WINE Best New Chefs,
and globally revered culinary pioneers. Complemented by the breathtaking vistas of the
California coastline and the grounds of Pebble Beach Resorts, the annual Lexus Grand
Tasting will offer festivalgoers an endless medley of gastronomic delights that spans the
imaginative and inspiring cuisine of its star guest chefs.

With much fanfare, returning this year is ment’or BKB Foundation whose mission is to
preserve and inspire culinary excellence and craftsmanship among a community of young
American professionals through meaningful educational opportunities, internships, and
access to a Culinary Council of established mentors. Carrying on in the tradition of its
founder, the venerable Paul Bocuse, mentor’s commitment to the sustainability of a
higher standard of excellence is held true by its prestigious board of directors including
Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, and Jérôme Bocuse. "We are excited to be back at Pebble Beach Food & Wine and are looking forward to bringing past and present Team USA

together. Building on the success of last year's event, we are thrilled to be partnering with an organization that dedicates itself to similar goals and principles," says Young Yun,

executive director of ment’or. Pebble Beach Food & Wine guests will enjoy intimate cooking demos, and exclusive chef collaboration meals as designed by the mentor team.
