Alisal Ranch Signature Experiences

California Ranch Cookouts

California Ranch Cookouts

California Ranch Cookouts Are Back!

We partner with incredible guest chefs to cook up a feast, creating a memorable outdoor dining experience that will leave you full, yet hungry for more. The night begins with a demo and introduction to the guest chef, followed by local wine pourings or a signature cocktail, then the buffet dinner begins featuring guest chef menu items and dinner items from the Alisal Ranch culinary team. Focusing on barbecued favorites, each meal will feature savory meats, seafood, delicious roasted veggie dishes, and grilled decadent desserts. These are some of our favorite evenings, as we fill the summer night with live music and dancing.

The California Ranch Cookouts take place at the Rodeo Arena after our weekly Summer Rodeos or on the Oval Lawn. Both spacious and unique al fresco dining spaces at the Ranch sit amidst the beautiful rolling hills that provide stunning wide-open backdrops for these cookout experiences.

If you already will be staying at Alisal Ranch when these events occur, there will be no extra charge for your attendance. If you don’t yet have an accommodation reserved, this is a great excuse for a getaway and a unique California culinary experience.
