"This culinary stew of rockstars, sports heroes, and rockstar chefs is the highlight of my year. This ain't your grandma's cooking demo! But instead, an explosion of food, fun and high jinks, regarded as the best of BottleRock Napa Valley. I mean, where else can you see Snoop Dogg breaking a world record for biggest Gin & Juice, Martha Stewart playing ping pong and drummers Chad Smith and Taylor Hawkins in a drum-off with pots & pans?! And just wait and see what we have cookin' this year! Look forward to seeing you this year at the Williams-Sonoma Culinary Stage!" - Liam Mayclem, The KCBS Foodie Chap and Culinary Stage Emcee
