Since 1980, Sam's To Go's staff has been assembling sandwiches stacked high with premium deli meat and cheese. From within the K-Mart Shopping Center, they bake loaves of bread fresh every day, then pile on everything from hot pastrami to cotto salami, capicola, bologna, and cheese. The Santa Barbara–staple eatery now has four locations, several of which have outdoor tables where clients can soak up the warm sunshine and taunt birds with their ice cold beers.
Oreana Winery's festive, eclectic style is embodied in its facilities, housed within a revamped historical tire shop. While in the tasting room, dabbling imbibers will enjoy dipping their senses into a rotating selection of six different wines, ranging from charming chardonnays to mystical merlots (a $10 value per person). Each tippling pair will receive a bottle of signature 2007 Oreana pinot noir, in which aromatics of wilted rose, strawberry, and wild berry bolster an elegant structure and dimension before fading to a delicate finish (a $30 value). After bathing tongues in sophisticated flavors on Oreana Winery's outdoor patio and attempting to describe a particular sensation as "supernatural taffy," tour the wine shop, gourmet gift market, and fully functional winery.

Drawing on traditions passed down through the generations before her, Nimita Dhirajlal prepares vegetarian Indian cuisine following the Ayurvedic philosophy. To that end, she cooks to promote health with a menu based on only vegetarian ingredients, as well as to nurture the community by using locally sourced ingredients. At Nimita's Cuisine, she shares not only her meals through catering services, but also her techniques for preparing the piquant dishes through cooking classes.
Dhirajlal—a culinary instructor since the mid '90s—leads classes that teach students how to cook intuitively with a knowledge of the spices and methods, rather than just how to follow a recipe. At the end of each three-hour class, she invites the students to sit down and enjoy their vegetarian creations together, after first promising to not incite a food fight.
She also offers catering for large groups and delivers weekly baskets packed with meals such as saag paneer, butternut squash garbanzo curry, and moong bean daal to subscribers' doorsteps each Monday.
When Chef Nikki Dailey graduated from The Culinary Institute of America in New York, she spent some time perfecting her craft at five-star restaurants. But those kitchens couldn’t contain her love of seasonal, local, and organic cuisine, so she founded HEATculinary. The business brings her signature style of cooking right to students with in-home cooking classes that focus on fresh ingredients grown nearby and proper cooking techniques. HEATculinary also offers a variety of cooking-themed programs, including personal culinary classes, culinary boot-camp, group events, and catering.
