Seriously. This is exciting. Well, to me, anyway.
The Good Food Festival & Conference kicked-off today at the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market. To anyone who knows about the Wednesday farmers’ market in Santa Monica you know how amazing it is. To those who have not been lucky enough to visit this gorgeous food market I hope you’ll find some time to head to Arizona and 3rd Street to see some of the most beautiful fruit and veggies you’ve ever seen. Chances are you’ll be rubbing elbows with some of LA’s most exciting chefs as they do their restaurant shopping.
This morning I went, not to buy anything, because as I mentioned on Monday I have way too much produce already, but to watch the live cooking demos and hear some amazing and influential local chefs speak.
OK–so I couldn’t resist and bought some California Crottin goat cheese from Redwood Hill Farm and a bag of zucchini blossoms. I think I’ll stuff those blossoms with fresh mozz and fry ’em tomorrow night. Yummm…
Here are some pics from the amazing vendors at The Santa Monica Farmers’ Market.
Can’t wait for the weekend when the festival continues with the two-day speaker series at Santa Monica High School. Check out the Good Food Festival website for event details.
