Labor Day Weekend is the last three day weekend signaling the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Could there be a better time to celebrate all things food? Amazing restaurants, fabulous food, and some of the most influential chefs behind the Los Angeles food scene will be present at this weekend’s The Taste. We are looking forward to this year’s event and of course eating, drinking and attending wine seminars and cooking demos. There is something for everyone to enjoy and indulge in. Hope to see you there!
I’m excited to share that today is National Can It Forward Day! Jarden Home Brands, the makers of Ball® brand fresh preserving products, and the Minnetrista Master Preservers will stream live demonstrations and answer audience questions to demystify the art of canning. I’ll be watching today to learn tips and recipes and will be posting my canning experiences soon along with a fun giveaway.
Taylor, our golden retriever mix, is a big part of our family. She brings us so much happiness and continually teaches us the true meaning of love and what it means to be a family. This weekend we decided to create a gift basket to donate to the Irvine Animal Shelter. The Irvine animal shelter helps thousands of abused, neglected and homeless animals every year. I think the Irvine animal shelter does amazing work and the animals there deserve a little extra pampering.
Secrets from television’s hottest celebrity chefs and extraordinary small bites from Los Angeles’ trendiest dining establishments were all the buzz at this year’s The Taste. Kitchen tips and secrets from the Food Network’s Chopped Judge: Scott Conant and 5 Ingredient Fix: Claire Robinson.
