Battledish: Chino Farms – Thursday Oct 2nd // Tue Oct 21st // 7 pm
$100 including food, pairings, tax and tip.

You sunk my Battledish! Have you ever wanted to be a judge on Iron Chef America or Chopped, here’s your chance. We absolutely love cooking with Chino Farms vegetables. In fact, it is our favorite dinner to put on. We love being at the mercy of the soil, we love not knowing what I’ll be working with the night before we go down there, we love the drive home figuring out how were going to treat these gifts from the earth. The way we cook the meal is really fun, 3 chefs, each chef picks 4 ingredients and each ingredient gets its own dish. We never let the guests know who made which dish but at the end we always ask each person what their favorite dish of the evening is. Winner takes bragging rights, until the next Battledish Dinner.

Terroir.0 Winemaker Dinner: Talley Vineyards – Wednesday 15th // 7 pm
$150 including food, wine, tax and tip.

2.0 is excited to welcome Brian Talley of Talley Vineyards for an evening with their outstanding Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs from the central coast.

“For three generations the Talley family has farmed in the Southern San Luis Obispo County. The tradition began in 1948 when Oliver Talley founded Talley Farms and started growing specialty vegetables in the Arroyo Grande Valley. During the 1970s extensive planting of winegrapes began in the neighboring Edna Valley and Santa Barbara County areas. After observation and extensive analysis, Oliver’s son, Don Talley, was convinced of the potential to grow high quality chardonnay and pinot noir on the steep hillsides above Talley Farms. Don planted a small test plot in 1982 on the west hillside of the Rincon Vineyard that included chardonnay, pinot noir, riesling, sauvignon blanc and cabernet sauvignon. Over time the varietal and clonal selections were refined and planting expanded to a total of 165 acres in the Arroyo Grande and Edna Valleys.”
