Free Artisan Food & Arts Festival In Irvine: Saturday, April 28
The OC Great Park -- yeah, the one with the balloon -- is hosting an Artisan Food & Arts Festival on Saturday, April 28. According to the website, you could "learn how to bake your own bread, make your own jam, prepare a delicious fresh dish and . . . to create a more sustainable community."
The ambitious list of live demonstrations will have "celebrity chefs, UCCE Master Gardeners, local artisans and community organizations" showing you:
- Cheese making
- Bread making
- Soda making
- Salad making
- Jam making
- Refrigerator pickling
- Backyard chickens and eggs
- Vegetables farm to fork
- Backyard bees
- Raw food
- Artisan beers and organic wines
There will, of course, be food trucks (The Lime Truck, Kogi, Barcelona On-the-Go and Seabirds), as well as a few restaurants we're already fond of, including Clay Oven and Xanh Bistro, which is in the process of moving to a new location.
Here are the deets:
