Sostenuto celebrates the Festival’s goals for its sustainable future, and honors the commitment of our hosts, Linda and Fedele Bauccio, to sustainable local food. Fedele Bauccio is CEO and co-founder of Bon Appétit Management, the innovative food-service company with over four hundred cafés nationwide at corporate headquarters, universities, and specialty venues including eBay, MIT, and the Getty Center. BAM is known for its culinary expertise and for pioneering environmentally sound sourcing policies based on a sustainable model that values small local farmers, humane animal treatment and farm worker welfare.
“The Mendocino Music Festival is an unbelievable event,” said Fedele Bauccio, a big fan of the two-week festival. “Like good food, good live music has the power to bring people together to create unforgettable memories.”
Sostenuto’s culinary delights are created by chefs of the Bon Appétit Management Company: Marco Alvarado, Executive Chef, and chef Holly Winslow, Event Manager, and their professional food and service staff. The signature Sostenuto cocktail and fine wines will accompany appetizers. Beer from from local sources will be served.
Sostenuto is one in a series of culinary events that bring people together each year in celebration of music and the vibrant food and beverages of Mendocino; events that are also one of the principal ways the festival raises funds to ensure its long-term sustainability.
