MALIBU—Forget all the earthquakes and heat waves. The Southern
California lifestyle is best enjoyed with some wine and an ocean breeze. Both were on
hand at the 9th Annual Taste of Malibu on Thursday, August 16.
The annual event features local restaurant and winemaker
fare. It was scheduled to take place at Malibu and Vine Bar & Grille at the Malibu Golf
Club from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. In addition to wine and cuisine, last year’s Taste of
Malibu included a silent auction. No word yet on whether or not the auction will make a second appearance.
According to the event web page, this year’s participating
restaurants included Savory, Malibu and Vine, Lobo Castle, Hoyt Family Wines,
Solstice Wines, Sage Hill Wines, and more. VIP guests enjoyed a technique presentation
and cooking by Chef Matthew Zubrod of Malibu and Vine and another unnamed chef.
Zubrod has been a chef for over two decades, including 12 years at the Ritz
Carlton where he was named as one of America’s Best Hotel Chefs by the James
Serving Bel Air, Benedict Canyon, Beverly Hills. Brentwood, Laurel Canyon, Los Feliz, Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Melrose, Santa Monica, Sherman Oaks, Studio City, Topanga, Canyon, Westwood & Hollywood Hills.
