Tickets are on sale now for The Palate Project, a culinary celebration benefiting the Center for Land-Based Learning and the Food Bank of Yolo County. The fundraiser — which features great food, wine and beer — is presented by Nugget Markets and hosted by the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science.

Formerly known as The Best of the Barrel, The Palate Project will run from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, at the Good Life Garden at the Mondavi Institute on the UC Davis campus. Tickets are $40 and may be purchased online at the Center for Land-Based Learning and RMI. Tickets are also available at any Nugget Market location.

Guests must be at least 21 years old to purchase tickets and attend the event. Parking at the event costs $8.

Guests attending The Palate Project will be treated to a wide range of signature dishes from Nugget Markets kitchens, as well as a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables, all freshly grilled on-site. Beer and cheese pairings, chocolate and wine pairings and at least 100 wine tastings from more than 40 wineries include local, organic and imported offerings, many of which are from UCD alumni winemakers.

In addition, guests also may participate in the “Bid to Build Your Cellar” wine auction, to support programs at the Robert Mondavi Institute for Wine and Food Science. Auction items can be viewed on RMI’s website.

Food Bank Farmers offers beginning farmers, students in CLBL’s California Farm Academy, the opportunity to learn their trade with hands-on farm management, crop planning and fieldwork at a 1.5-acre farm plot near Davis. All of the food grown by these new farmers is harvested by volunteers and donated to the Food Bank for its Kids Farmers Market and Children’s Harvest programs.
