Of the numerous food events held in and around town, the Los Angeles Magazine Food Event happens to be one of the best. Escaping the concrete jungle and sending guests to the awe-inspiring acreage of Malibu Hills' Saddlerock Ranch—one of our premiere local wineries—the afternoon is a true celebration of good eats and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere.

For their fifth annual celebration, on Sunday, October 24th, Los Angeles is once again bringing together great chefs, culinary experts, and sommeliers for a day of tasting and talking. A cooking demo area gives guests a chance to learn from the pros up close, while the "Conversation Lounge" sets up well-known chefs and attendees in an outdoor cozy living room for lively chats.

Participating restaurants include some of our favorites, like Eva, Magnolia Bakery, Akasha, and Sweetsalt (and many more), and this year, a few food trucks will be rolling up.

Unlimited food and drink, parking, and access to all the demos and talks is $95 ($100 if you add in a subscription to the magazine) and $110 if you buy at the door. Kids, pets, and those under 21 need to stay at home, though. [Tickets]
