Celebrity Chef & Cooking Demo Host – Chef Jamie Gwen

The Chef Demo Tent will be filled with the savory aromas of live cooking demos throughout the event.  Hosted by Celebrity Chef and KFWB Talk Radio Host, Chef Jaime Gwen.

There is a great deal of camaraderie among Orange County chefs, as so many of them have worked together, grown up in the same OC neighborhoods or challenged each other in this delectable business of food and signature restaurants! Rarely, do they find time in their busy schedules to come together in one delightfully, delicious event.


Taste of Orange County will be filled with their ideas, personalities and presentations at Cooking Demos, the Great OC Farm Dinner™ and Father’s Day Feast™..  Save the date, for the largest and most exciting culinary event of the summer!
