Join us on June 8!
Guest Chef Series is Family Services' signature fundraising event and a premier food and wine event for Tulare County.  This year's Guest Chef is Kelli Crosson. Kelli grew up on a 40-acre citrus orchard in Exeter. She attended The French Culinary Institute in New York and is the Chef de Cuisine at A.R. Valentien at The Lodge at Torrey Pines, a AAA Five Diamond luxury resort in La Jolla, California. We are also pleased to welcome back our long-time catering partner, Chef David Vartanian of The Vintage Press.  This uniquely all-inclusive event allows guests to enjoy a truly special cooking demonstration with the Guest Chef, including beautifully-plated tastings and recipes paired with fine wines; catered dinner and dessert served by The Vintage Press; as well as festive live entertainment.
