Food Fare 2012, which began in 1979 with a cooking demonstration by the legendary Child, is now in its 33rd year of benefiting Planned Parenthood Los Angeles and celebrating new innovators in food like 2012 Chef of the Year Suzanne Goin: chef and owner of AOC, Lucques and Tavern.
It’s also the biggest, best foodie party in town.
The March 8th event features over 150 of L.A.’s best restaurants, caterers, florists, food trucks, purveyors of spirits, and entertainers.
Restaurant participants include: A.O.C., Ammo, Waterloo and City, Angelini Osteria, Church and State, Salt’s Cure, Drago Central, Clementine, Public Kitchen and Bar, Tavern, Craft, and Lucques as well as mobile eateries The Border Grill Truck and The Grilled Cheese Truck.
Yum, yum, and triple yum.
Food Farians can also look forward to libations from spirit slingers such as The Beer Chicks’ Beer Garden (hosted by Beer Sommeliers Christina Perozzi & Hallie Beaune), Rosenthal Vineyards, Summerland Winery, VeeV Açai Spirit and Champagne Piper Heidsieck.
That’s a lot of food bang for your buck.
