Congratulations to Briana Gonzales, the 2017 winner of the Monterey County Film Commission's Director Emeritus Richard Tyler Film Student Scholarship Award! Briana is a Cinematic Arts and Technology major at CSUMB. She looks forward to a career in filmmaking, particularly in stop-motion animation. Jeff Clark, scholarship committee chair and chair of the board of the MCFC, is pictured here presenting her with a plaque commemorating the $2000 scholarship.

MCFC would like to thank the Craig and Paula Tigerman family and in-kind support from the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and many local donors. We welcome contributions for next year's deserving film student.

Located in the Portola Hotel & Spa, Jacks Monterey offers locally sourced produce and other products native to Monterey County including sustainable Monterey Bay seafood. The entire menu features California Cultural Cuisine.

California epitomizes the melting pot of America. Chef Danny Abbruzzese’s inspiration and passion for creating signature dishes has brought him full circle to highlight different flavor profiles unique to cultures from around the world. Chef Danny uses traditional techniques from immigrants who call California home while highlighting locally sourced, sustainably conscious ingredients found throughout Monterey County. Open for lunch and dinner.

The Bacon Chop is back on the menu at Montrio Bistro! It's 12 ounces of double smoked pork belly and loin (English-style back bacon) cooked in a Cumberland sauce on an iron skillet in our wood-burning oven. It's then served atop griddled mac-n-cheese, topped with fried onion strings, plated with a jalapeño-honey gastrique, and garnished with a baked tomato. Chef Tony Baker's own Baker's Bacon Chop can only be found at Montrio Bistro, located at 414 Calle Principal in Old Monterey.
