Featured Event: Taste of Capay – October 25

The Taste of Capay is a special meal featuring food grown on various farms and ranches in and around the beautiful Capay Valley. Guests can enjoy local wines, live music, and bid on auctions to raise money for the non-profit organization Capay Valley Vision.

Capay Valley Vision, a community based organization established to help preserve and promote the Capay Valley, is the host of the sixth annual Taste of Capay benefit dinner and auction. The annual gathering takes place at Taber Ranch, a family-owned business set on an expansive working ranch in the valley.

Taste of Capay is catered by Cache Creek Casino Resort chefs using the best local ingredients. “We are thrilled to again have Cache Creek Casino generously donate their time and talents to the Taste of Capay,” said Capay Valley Vision Executive Director Sue Heitman. “The Taste of Capay is an event we all look forward to each year.”

The event began as a small group of neighbors coming together to showcase the bounty of the local area and has now developed into a grand production with a guest list of over 350. This is the third year Cache Creek Casino Resort and the Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians will cater the entire event with Executive Chef Stefan Cheng and Chef de Cuisine Ryan De Guzman.

“On behalf of the casino and the Tribe it is our honor to support such a wonderful event, “ said Marshall McKay, Chairman of the Rumsey Band of Wintun Indians. “The Taste of Capay is truly a showcase of all that our community has to offer.”

“Buy local, buy Fresh” is one of the mottos of Capay Valley Vision. Organic farms and fresh produce thrive in the valley and are in high demand from restaurants all over Northern California, including Sacramento and San Francisco. This is a great opportunity to sample some of this high quality organic fare. The event will be held from from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. on October 25th. Tickets are available for $55.
