Mammoth Food and Wine Experience 2013

food-wine-experience

Each year the Mammoth Lakes Foundation throws a party to celebrate food and wine from the foodies point of view. Labeled a “seminar” but really a very big tasting of foods paired with wine, this annual event raises funds for the Foundation which supports the local schools among other charitable causes. This year it is very exciting as the event has grown in size and through dedication has become one of the most respected events in Mammoth. This year it also coincides with the week long Mammoth 4th of July activities making a 7 day spectacular vacation.

The event is Friday, July 5 -Sunday, July 7, 2013. The famous chefs giving their seminars all know each other as many have all done time with Wolfgang Pucks “Eureka” restaurant. In this year’s lineup are Jennifer Black Dea, Jody Denton, Neal Fraser, Richard Haake, Jennifer Jasinski, and now local Dan Molnar.

More importantly, 30 wineries and 120 wines make up the grand tasting. This is one event where you need an iPhone app to keep track of all this deliciousness. You’ll want to compare notes as you sip through the pinot, chardonnays, cabernets and merlots. The growing number of vintners coming to Mammoth for the event shows their commitment to making Mammoth a real center for the art, education and enjoyment of fine cuisine and wine.

Welcome to Mammoth Lakes California

Mining is what started it all. Deep in the Eastern Sierra the mountains had kept away many until 1858 when gold and silver were discovered in the Comstock Lode. Soon minters from Lake Tahoe had invaded the area searching for their lucky strike. The Mammoth Mining Company was born and for ten years Mammoth was a boom town. It stayed pretty much the same until 1937 when a real highway was built and Dave McCoy discovered something about Mammoth that only the previous residents knew. It had great water.

Today Mammoth Lakes California is a thriving resort town filled with fishing, hiking and mountain biking in summer and world class skiing and snowboarding in winter.  Boasting the longest ski season of any United States resort, Mammoth Mountain is generally open from mid November through May and often till 4th of July.  It is a great place to visit, better place live and one of the most beautiful on earth.
