We're pleased to announce that Cooking for Solutions is moving in an exciting new direction! Rather than focusing all of our efforts on a single big weekend in May, we're planning many Cooking for Solutions events throughout the year, including a few events in the Bay Area.

Starting in 2015, you can look forward to:

  • Culinary parties with celebrity chefs. Our first will be held on Saturday, June 6 as part of our World Oceans Day celebration. Save the date!
  • More weekends with Food and Wine Adventures around Monterey County.
  • New dine-around opportunities with Seafood Watch partner restaurants.
  • Pop-up dinners with celebrity chefs, and other events in Silicon Valley, Napa Valley and beyond.

All of this is driven by the need to help people connect their eating habits with the health of the ocean and ocean wildlife. We're keeping this front and center as we take fun, new approaches to make Cooking for Solutions a year-round celebration.

We look forward to sharing more details with you in the coming months. As always, our members and donors will receive special discounts on these and all of our events.
