7pm @ Wild Onion Ranch
Open-air cooking on a ranch by an all-star cast of chefs
Hot Luck’s main event on Saturday is not to be missed; as the name suggests, Al Fuego is a celebration of food cooked over an open flame. The showcasing chefs will display a wide range of local and global flavors and styles, alongside plenty of craft cocktails and ice cold beer (which are included in the ticket price as well). Al Fuego’s roster includes chefs and dishes from local favorites Contigo, Suerte, Emmer & Rye, Foreign & Domestic, Pitchfork Pretty, and Comedor, as well as guest chefs Abe Conlon (Fat Rice, Chicago), Alon Shaya (SABA, New Orleans), Chris Bianco (Pizzeria Bianco, Phoenix), Greg & Gabi Denton (Ox, Portland), Jeremiah Stone (Wildair & Contra, NYC), Doug Adams (Bullard, Portland), Sarah Kramer & Sarah Hymanson (Kismet, LA), and bartender Aaron Polsky (Harvard & Stone, LA). Tunes will be provided by Captain Jim & the Heart and Soul Soundsystem.
Ticket price: $215 per person
Don’t miss it: Known for his modern Israeli cuisine, Alon Shaya will be serving some bites worth looking out for, and Abe Conlon will plate his unique homage to Luso-Asian cuisine (which combines ingredients and techniques from Portugal, India, South-East Asia, Africa, and China). LA barman Aaron Polsky will be serving a Tabasco-tinged cocktail as a play on the event’s fiery theme.
