This is a terribly late post...but I had to post it..
I sure many of you in LA went because it was packed!! But if you did not get the chance to go the the Eat Real Festival at the Helms Bakery in Culver City a couple weekends ago or you were like the several friends of mine who said "I drove by..looked cool" you can see what you missed and what you can expect next year right here.
Let me tell you it was awesome..
So much great locally grown, locally made food and to die for deserts that I just could not stop eating...ALL DAY!
Being from L.A. I have never really known what it's like to be in a real live home grown small town..but I imagine that the Eat Real Festival came really close. Just people, young and old, single and with families enjoying a harmless day out in the sun drinking beer out of mason jars and scarfing down hot dogs and bacon mac and cheese while polishing it all off with a hand made, home made ice cream sandwich!!
Okay maybe that's not what a "small town" is like..but don't wreck my fantasy okay...
Locally grown and locally made... I "Like"
