Free Artisan Food & Arts Festival In Irvine: Saturday, April 28
Dave Lieberman

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
  • Aquaponics
  • Composting
  • 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:
