If you're sticking around this Labor Day weekend and firing up the grill, do yourself a favor and go to Bristol Farms in Newport Beach this weekend. As they have for the past couple of years, Melissa's Produce will be selling and roasting Hatch chiles, the manna of American chile heads.
You can read about my adventures with Bristol Farms' Hatch chile roasting from two years ago here. The Melissa's people tell me they'll be selling and roasting from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, or until they're out. See you there!
