With a variation of its duck confit, V’s Restaurant and Bar took home the Taste of Malibu award for a second year in a row at the Chamber of Commerce’s 11th annual Taste of Malibu event on Thursday, June 12, hosted at Duke’s Malibu.

The award-winning dish was a debut from V’s chef and Malibu resident Chris Bocchino, who prepared a duck confit over a soft polenta mixed with umami butter and shallots that were pickled in tarragon vinegar.
