Farm-to-Table Pop-up for Edible Monterey Bay
This event (check out the preview written by Amber Turpin) is a joint effort between the Santa Cruz Community Farmers' Markets and Chef Koebel's organization Local FATT (Food Awareness Through Teaching).
Yippee! I love getting to go somewhere, eat, learn, and then go home to write about the experience for other local foodies. Best. Work. Ever.
Salty-Caramel Sticky Buns with house-made raw honey butter, created in part by Companion Bakeshop; House Ground Fennel-Molasses Sausage with a little bit of El Salchichero’s magic behind it; pizza topped with the fennel sausage, Harley Farms chevre and wilted greens, then wood fire-baked and served with scrambled eggs. Local salmon, bacon, more eggs and seasonal fruit will also share the limelight. And we all sit, family-style at long tables, using our own plates and utensils to minimize waste. Love it!
If you want to join the fun, go to the Edible Monterey Bay website and look at 'Edible Events' on the left-hand side of the page.
And for information about a series of events at the Downtown Santa Cruz Community Farmers' Market called the Santa Cruz’ FoodShed Project, check out the post I wrote - Peach Party - about their August event. There are three more in the series!
There are lots of great happenings in the foodie world on that side of the Monterey Bay. I am so excited to be a part of it.
