Into the Wild

Anh-Minh Le | January 6, 2017 | Food & Drink Story Eat and Drink National

Come hungry—and with your hiking boots in tow! The annual Big Sur Foragers Festival, which benefits the Big Sur Health Center, returns Jan. 13–15. “Our guests are food and travel enthusiasts from all over the world,” says executive director and event coordinator Sharen Carey. “They come not only to enjoy the beauty of Big Sur and the surrounding area, but to experience the unique presentation of locally foraged foods and signature wines that are so abundant in Monterey County.” Among the highlights are a foraging hike at Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park; the Fungus Face-Off, a culinary competition with dishes by notable area chefs, relying on locally sourced mushrooms; an artisan market, which is new for 2017 and will include Carmel Honey Company, Big Sur Sea Salt, The Quail and Olive; Salt Roots Soap Company and more; a winemaker’s dinner at Post Ranch Inn that also serves as a fundraiser; and the multi-course Grand Chef Forager’s Dinner co-hosted by Executive Chef Tim Wood, held at Carmel Valley Ranch. The events will take place rain or shine. Tickets $60–$175
