Was it last year? I think it was, but anyhoo, I still have great memories of being a judge at SoCo Farmer's Market “Farm to Food Truck” contest, which pitted some of OC's finer luxe loncheras against each other in a Chopped-style contest utilizing the awesome produce found at the Costa Mesa treasure.
I couldn't do the last couple, but Dave and I will be judges at the fourth installment, which will happen this Saturday starting at noon.
The competitors will be Taco María, Seabirds,
Tamarindo Truck, Chomp-Chomp Nation, and A Bite Truck. Ingredients? Butternut squash, walnuts, pomegranate, kale, and mushrooms, of which the three trucks will make a three-course meal utilizing said ingredients. The cost to taste the goodies? $30, of which proceeds go to the non-profit that runs the farmer's market. Other goodies? Other luxe loncheras, and you get to do your shopping for the week.
