Celebrate Food & Chefs of Lake County

The chefs featured in the Lake County Wine Auction are extremely creative and devoted to their craft. We look forward to a kicked up family style country experience created and presented Beth and Jeff Havrilla of Lake Event Design in partnership with Chef Rob Cabreros and his team from Woodland College Lake County Campus.


There is a lot of talk about the high quality wines that are a signature in Lake County, but with many unique food products being produced, we now see the county developing into a premier agricultural region as well. Few realize that Lake County provides a perfect environment for nurturing and developing accomplished chefs.


Under the direction Rob Cabreros, a team from the Woodland Collage Culinary Program is working to help create an extraordinary dining experience. Local chef/caterers are offering pre-dinner “tasty bites” which can be sampled along with a variety of Lake County wines. And, Chef Rob will be back after dinner with the taco bar,” that was such a hit at last year’s auction. In creating this year’s food offerings, our chefs are taking care to embrace the quality ingredients that we have at our fingertips. So please, spend a few extra moments and savor a locally grown pear or tomato, olive oil from a local mill, or cheese from a local dairy. Then, when this year’s flavors are just a memory, we ask you to think about and support the people who have created all this great food.


It’s amazing how food nourishes, comforts and inspires us all at the same time. After experiencing, the fires of recent years, we realize the importance of  basic nourishment. It raises our level of appreciation for those who provide this abundance. We hope the flavors that you experience at this year’s Lake County Wine Auction and the story behind them will inspire you as you help us with our task of building a better community here in Lake County.
