If you’d like to enjoy the treasures from some of El Dorado County’s most gifted artists, chefs, and winemakers in one lovely setting, then don’t miss the second annual Taste of the Foothills — A Benefit for Cedar Springs Waldorf School, on Saturday, June 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Smith Flat House, 2021 Smith Flat Road in Placerville.

“We started this event last year to showcase the amazing local talent in our community, while garnering funds for our school,” said Stephanie Baumgartner, event chairwoman. “We were ecstatic about the support and attendance we received last year and are excited to plan another successful event.”

Where else can you sample wine from more than nine local wineries, including Baiocchi Winery, Boeger Winery, Bumgarner Winery, Cantiga Wineworks, Crystal Basin Cellars, Madroña Vineyards, Oakstone Winery, Perry Creek Winery and Shadow Ranch.

To complement the different varieties of wine on hand, people may also nibble on scrumptious goodies from local restaurants such as Annabelle’s Chocolates, Back Bistro, Beth Sogaard Catering, Crystal Basin Bistro, Mitch and Josh Catering, Rustic Fork, Shaft’s Cheese Company and Winterhill Olive Oil.

This event also features a wide array of two-and three-dimensional art, including sculpture, watercolor, felting and much more.

Artists will have their original work for sale and there will also be a chance to win unique works, as many of the artists, as well as participating restaurants and wineries, are donating items for a silent auction to benefit Cedar Springs Waldorf School.

Featured artists include Ashley Bennett Stoddard, Bohemian Earth Building, Mary Lou Dales, Richard Deutsch, Annette MacBean, MaizyChain, Pluckyfluff, Ron Runtenelli and Cindy Stephens.

Proceeds from Taste of the Foothills will go toward the art, music, drama and other programs that are a crucial part of the Waldorf education, as well as the scholarship program.

“We want to make sure we can provide this opportunity to all children and families who value this kind of education,” said Lynn Morgan, director of community development for the school.

Tickets for Taste of the Foothills are $25 if purchased online at TasteoftheFoothills.com and $30 if purchased at the event in the lovely outdoor courtyard of the Smith Flat House.

For more information call Cedar Springs Waldorf School at 530-642-9903.

The Cedar Springs Waldorf School is an independent, accredited Waldorf school with programs spanning pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Since its inception in 1989, CSWS has strived to help children fully develop their own unique capacities and to be inspired with a lifelong love of learning. This is accomplished on a five-acre campus where dedicated and trained teachers educate the whole child — head, heart and hands — through a variety of artistic and academic endeavors.
