Food Weekend: Slake, Food for Thought, Crawfish Boil, The Secret Fork
As the sporadic rain starts to become ever more sporadic, and the gorgeous L.A. weather begins to become the norm, weekends are about to get jam-packed with food-related happenings. Here's a slew of them.
On Friday night, the Los Angeles-based literary journal Slake is holding a release party for their fourth issue, entitled "Dirt," at the Atwater Crossing. There will be plenty of "lit" on display, but more important than that, a whole bunch of food, including a hot dog truck, free pie(!), and free beer(!) by Golden Road Brewing. Well, free may not be technically accurate, seeing as you have to pay $5 to get into the event ($8, if you buy day-of tickets), but you get the gist.
Friday night down in Orange County, the Food for Thought film series kicks off with an outdoor screening of "Forks over Knives," a doc regarding how nourishment and food education can help battle diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Guests are encouraged to spread their blankets out and pack a picnic, or just use legal currency to get some mid-movie snacks from the nearby gourmet food trucks. Make sure to dress for chilly weather.
Starting this Saturday -- and taking place every Saturday in May -- Dominick's in Beverly Hills will be holding an old-fashioned crawfish boil. Chef Brandon Boudet -- New Orleans native -- will be boiling up hundreds of pounds on the restaurant's patio and serving them up to customers. The crawfish can purchased for $11 a pound, and other traditional New Orleans dishes like raw oysters, po'boys and sno-balls will be also available.
On Sunday afternoon, somewhere in downtown L.A., another mysterious entry of The Secret Fork, "a members only underground pop-up marketplace," will occur. Local chefs and food artists will bring their wares and distribute them to the public. Thing is, the only way to find out where it's going to be is to head to their website and become a member, which will run you a whopping $5.
