Local artisan eats at the Food Rendezvous
L.A.'s ascendent food artisans emerge from their incubator kitchens this Saturday to gather at the Food Rendezvous in Venice. The event represents the collected efforts of Laurie Dill and Dominique Leveuf, two former San Franciscans who were inspired by the underground farmers market movement there. With the Food Rendezvous, the two hope to connect L.A.'s vast food community: a jam-maker who uses heirloom fruits from her grandmother's farm; a blue ribbon-winning baker; an architect moonlighting as a barista. Plus, try bites from established luminaries like Susan Feniger's Street and Altadena's Bulgarini Gelato. Also scheduled are presentations from non-profit organizations, cooking demos, a movie screening, cookbook swap and more.
The Food Rendezvous, inside SPARC, 685 Venice Blvd., Venice; thefoodrendezvous.com. Sat. Aug. 28, 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. $10.
