Guest Chef Series

Guest Chef Series

Join Family Services each June for the Annual Guest Chef Series, Tulare County’s premier food and wine event. Each year, we invite a different chef to prepare a unique, three-course tasting menu, featuring dishes that capture the event’s culinary theme. Each tasting course is paired with a fine wine, and the tastings are followed by dinner, catered by Chef David Vartanian and the Vintage Press. Guest Chef is an all-inclusive event— all food, wine, and entertainment are included with your tickets.

The Guest Chef Series is the largest annual fundraiser for Family Services. Our mission is to help children, adults, and families throughout Tulare County heal from violence and thrive in healthy relationships. We build safety in homes, in relationships, and for children through informed and compassionate care.

Admission to this uniquely all-inclusive event is $150 per person, and includes an elegant evening of fun with creative cuisine, fine wine, cooking demonstrations, and festive live entertainment.  Stay tuned for information on the 2019 event.
