Eat Real Festival LA

Have you guys heard of Eat Real Festival? I remember an email for the first one in Oakland a few years ago (following in the footsteps of the wildly delicious Slow Food Nation the year before), but kept deleting the emails each time they came because I figured we wouldn’t be able to go. Until my neighbor David, forwarded the press release for this year’s festival in LA. In Culver City, no less! Which means we are actually going to go! (since it’s only two zip codes away).

Pickling, jam-making, chicken-keeping, small batch beer, street food… you know, all the borderline cliché stuff that I love. I srsly can’t wait. The only downside is this coincides perfectly with the 405 closure weekend. Which, for those of you who live in LA know, is going to be like a small armageddon for traffic patterns around the city.

Check it out: Eat Real Fest at the Helms Bakery, July 16-17th. Maybe I’ll run into some of you there!

    whoa whoa whoa! This is a little more than a couple of zip codes away for me, but I will surely be there! This sounds amazing. I’ve never heard of this before! Can’t wait!

    We go to the Oakland Eat Real every year and it is so worth it! Get there early or plan to stand in line and pop a squat. Yum!

    I went to the one in Oakland last year. It was amazing – and overwhelming! There was seriously, so so much food and so, so many people. Hope you enjoy yourself!!

    You’re brave! We’ve already marked that weekend for no driving. Of course, we’re in one of the neighborhoods that they just advise you not to go into that weekend. Um, we’re already here?

    I was so excited when they emailed me to use my photo in the banner (homemade kimchi, bottom left) and it’s tempting to drive up for it. It’s several zip codes away from here.

    It looks like sweet and real fun.

    P.S. We are giving away 2 books from Studio Violet
