AUTISTIC TEEN CHEF LAUNCHES COOKBOOK AT LA RESTAURANT TO RAISE MONEY TO SET UP AUTISM SUPPORT CHARITY (10TH OF NOVEMBER AT 7PM)
Autistic teen chef Chase Bailey from Orange County, CA, who hosts his own hit cooking show www.chasenyurface.com launches his first cookbook this autumn to raise money to enable other people with autism to follow their dreams.
The official launch takes place at Santa Monica’s popular and award-winning Upper West restaurant in Santa Monica, Ca. on 10th November. Executive Chef Nick Shipp has been a huge fan of Chase since they cooked together at Autism Speaks’ Hollywood Celebrity Chef Gala in 2015. Between them they will be creating a five-course tasting menu based on The Official Chase ‘N Yur Face Cookbook. On hand to film the event will be Joey Travolta with a crew from his Inclusion Films company. The company teaches adults with developmental disabilities the practicalities to film making and many go on to work in major entertainment organizations.
Featuring over 75 recipes 15-year old Chase has developed, supported by mouthwatering photography, fun facts and anecdotes, The Official Chase ‘N Yur Face Cookbook (Chase ‘N Yur Face Media LLC, $24.95) includes an endorsement from Chef Mario Batali, who Chase appeared with on ABC’s top cooking program The Chew.
Using part of the book’s proceeds, Chase has decided to set up his own foundation, the www.chaseyurdreams.org, to assist people with autism who are working towards their dreams of living independently.
Tickets for the event, which starts at 7pm, cost $70 (plus tax & tip), and includes a signed copy of Chase’s cookbook plus a gastronomic goody bag. Tickets are available from www.upperwest.com or by calling the restaurant direct on 310-586-1111

BOB KNEBEL - COO, ROMBAUER VINEYARDS
Appreciation bred passion, and Rombauer Vineyards was established in 1980. Thirty-five years later, the winery remains owned and operated by first- and second-generation members of the family.
The Rombauer philosophy hasn’t changed since our founding in 1980: We believe in doing everything in our power to produce the best wines possible.
With just three head winemakers in our 35-year history, we’ve achieved consistency of style — distinctive, fruit-driven wines — while continually refining and improving our winemaking practices. Richie Allen, our Director of Viticulture and Winemaking, embraces traditional and cutting-edge practices in the vineyard and cellar to make certain each wine gets the customized attention it needs.
This marriage of old and new begins with optical sorters, ensuring only the best fruit makes it into our wines. All lots are separated, no matter how small, allowing Richie to determine the best fermentation and aging option for each. For reserve red wines, barrel fermentation is used to produce a more textured palate and silky tannins, and up to 25 types of French oak barrels are used for fermentation and/or aging. For all wines, a basket press and peristaltic pumps — larger versions of those used to move blood during surgery — provide for gentle handling every step of the way. Our caves provide ideal conditions for aging red wines.
Along with Richie, Associate Winemaker Luke Clayton and Assistant Winemaker Andrew Holloway round out our winemaking team. Each started out as a harvest intern at Rombauer, working their way up to their current roles. They have a combined experience of more than 30 years producing Rombauer wines.
Guided by their passion and expertise, Rombauer spares no effort or expense to produce the finest wines each vintage offers.
