Los Angeles Thai Food Festival: Like Whoa

Los Angeles Thai Food Festival: Like Whoa

Most Angelenos are fortunate enough to have a wide variety of authentic world cuisine no more than 30 minute radius from their home. A diverse food-scape is what makes this city so exciting to explore – both as a tourist and a dweller of 10+ years. Where I’ve done my fair share of Korean & Vietnamese...
Summertime, You're Not Leaving Me Yet: Barnsdall Friday Wine Tastings

Summertime, You’re Not Leaving Me Yet: Barnsdall Friday Wine Tastings

I know,  I’ve already told you this.  I’m still having a really difficult time prepping for my breakup with summer. One might even call it…denial. I think it mostly has to do with the mild weather and lack of any tropical escape this year. Once I’m ready to dive into the season it always seems...
Angeleno Magazine Live & Dine LA

Angeleno Magazine Live & Dine LA

Summer and food festivals go hand in hand here in Los Angeles. In fact, it seems there’s hardly a weekend to be had between May and September without the opportunity to oogle over chef demos or practice the art of stacking as many tiny paper plates in one hand as possible. I embrace this culinary...

Jones Coffee Roasters Pasadena: Educational & Highly Caffeinated Workshops

When Eventbrite asked me to pick out my second #SummerEventure, I knew I wanted to simmer things down a notch and go on journey of tamer varieties… I mean, did you see what I did to myself on the  first outing?! Loco on the real. For this round I wanted to educate myself in an...
The SoCal Tomato Battle

The SoCal Tomato Battle

  2013 is the summer of adventure…errr, I mean “Event-ure”. When July knocked on my calender’s door I realized {frantically} that we were already knee deep into summer. I immediately promised myself to start taking off on some mandatory creative and exciting quests weekly. Be it big bon voyage types, a small seasonal soirée or just...
Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos Unveiled In Los Angeles

Cool Ranch Doritos Locos Tacos Unveiled In Los Angeles

Now, I am by no means a frequent flyer of fast food…the only time you’ll spy me in a drive through is at In & Out twice a year, shamelessly hunched over an oozing animal style Double Double. I am human after all. I am also a pom pom waving cheerleader for clever advertising. Having...
Los Angeles Magazine: The Food Event 2012

Los Angeles Magazine: The Food Event 2012

The task of braving and successfully conquering a food festival can become somewhat of an art form. Especially in Los Angeles…people get craaaay-zeeee. Not only do you need to gracefully intercept nosh-bites, you’ve got to multitask the situation while balancing a teetering stack of at least 5 plates and a full glass of wine without...

Redefining Community: Alt Design Summit 2012

I know, I know. I don’t typically veer away from Foodworld around these parts, but seeing how absolutely intense and exciting the last few days have been…well, a mini detour was in order (as was a long…looooong nap). This past week, creative lovelies from all over the country descended upon Salt Lake City for  Alt...
