“To inspire wonder, discovery, recreation and stewardship of our

natural and cultural treasures in Mendocino County’s State Parks”


Abalone Cook off 2016 jpeg_Page_2.jpg

Join us each year at Noyo Harbor as some of the worlds best abalone cooks come together for live music, Gai's Cafe food booth, silent auction, craft fair, raffle, beer booth and wine tasting from Mendocino's finest wineries and of course some amazing abalone recipes!

Come be a part of the action by purchasing judging tickets. This is the only way you will be able to enjoy the recipes prepared by the competeing cooks. Get your tickets early, as they sell out quickly!

The cook-off is held in memory of Ken Tallman, and in honor of Sub-Surface Progression Dive Shop and the Tallman Family who donate the prizes.
