Ventura County's Support-Local Program

Dinner at the… 2013 Dinner Series

Here’s what’s in store for the innovative dinner series that promotes Ventura County’s world-class agriculture and cuisine as it returns for its third year.

This article describes the Totally Local VC Dinner At The… dinner series held in 2013. For information on this year’s dinner series, go to Farm-to-Fork Dinner Series 2019.

Southern California foodies typically have a lot to look forward to as the seasons evolve, especially on the Gold Coast with our powerful agricultural legacy. This year the anticipation rises a notch higher as Totally Local VC – Ventura County’s breakout advocacy network – announces its third annual “Dinner At The…” series. These innovative dining events marry iconic Ventura County locations with some of the area’s top-line chefs preparing seasonal selections harvested from the region’s celebrated farms. The series will be structured as three successive events, all revolving around seasonal, local fare. Every aspect of the evening, from cuisine to libation to music, entertainment and decor will derive from local auspices, indicative of and in keeping with the incredible bounty that is Ventura County, the wellspring that serves as Totally Local VC’s veritable raison d’être. The events are priced to please at $135.00 per person. You get the experience a five-course meal, paired with local wine, beer and entertainment, an offering that presents a unique community-building opportunity for all involved, from guests to organizers, sponsors, beneficiaries and purveyors. SPECIAL NOTE: The 2013 Totally Local VC Dinner Series will benefit FFA (Future Farmers Scholarship fund) and the Steve Toby Culinary Scholarship Fund
