good food festival

September 29, 2011


A couple Sundays ago Matthew and I went to the Good Food Festival in Santa Monica with my parents. It was a food festival and conference, with food demonstrations and lectures ranging from growing your own fruits and vegetables, preserving and pickling, and becoming a farmer. Matthew was interested in the last one! I especially loved going to Nancy Silverton’s lecture. She’s the co-founder and head baker of LaBrea Bakery {that’s all over the place now}, and also owns Osteria Mozza and Pizzeria Mozza {my favorite artisan pizza place in LA..remember this post?}. Anyways, she showed us how to make three of her favorite summer salads and I pre-ordered her Mozza cookbook almost immediately after the event! It was so fun to spend a bright and sunny afternoon walking around, tasting local foods and eating at the food trucks. I love food! nom nom nom

I especially loved that the Cool Haus truck was there. They make these amazing ice cream sandwiches with your choice of cookie + your choice of ice cream + an edible wrapper. Such a genius idea by the way! My sandwich was chocolate chip cookies with peanut butter ice cream {of course}. It’s my favorite combo ever!!
