The purpose of the Santa Barbara Culinary Experience (SBCE), in partnership with The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts, is to shine a light on our local culinary, hospitality, tourism, artisan and small business communities.
The Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts was created in 1995. Its mission is to educate and encourage everyone to appreciate the joys of cooking, eating and drinking well.
Headquartered in Santa Barbara, California, the Foundation has granted more than $2.5 million to non-proﬁts supporting research in culinary history, scholarships for professional culinary training, food writing and media as well as professional development and food literacy programs.
