Abalone Festival & Cook-off

October 7 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

$90

Ever eaten a sea snail? Well, if not, it's time to give this tasty mollusk the time of day! Every year, the Mendocino Area Parks Association holds the World Championship Abalone Cook-off to find the tastiest abalone dish! Buy a judging ticket and take part in sampling of of up to ten local chefs' delicious abalone recipes and vote for your favorite. The abalone prepared in the cook-off is wild-caught, not farm-raised, making this a unique experience. Judging is based on taste, texture/tenderness and presentation.

Even if you don't want to give your taste buds a party, enjoy the day at South Noyo Harbor where there will be love music, a beer booth, food, silent auction, craft fair, raffle and wine tasting from Mendocino's finest wineries!

The cook-off fundraiser is held in memory of Ken Tallman, and in honor of Sub-Surface Progression Dive Shop and the Tallman Family who donate the prizes.

Information and tickets are at mendoparks.org.
