Weekend Eats: Ojai Olive Oil Tasting with Artisanal L.A. in Pasadena
This Saturday, October 20th from 12-2 p.m., Ojai Olive Oil will be popping up at the Market on Hollyin Pasadena for a tasting and meet and greet. Alice de Dadelsen Asquith, the owner of the small,chemical- and pesticide-free olive oil purveyor, will be on hand to answer questions about the production process and the Central Coast farm.
The event is part of a new series that launched at the Market on Holly which aims to engage locals with food crafters from the Los Angeles area and its surrounding communities.
"Because Artisanal LA is on hiatus while we work on finding it a permanent home, we wanted to find a way to create community educational and vending opportunities for both our favorite producers and some of the newer folks who frequently reach out to us, and Market on Holly has been the perfect partner hosting these monthly events," says the event's organizer and founder of Artisanal LA, Shawna Dawson.
The series kicked off in August, and has since showcased Sqirl jams and preserves as well as Mother Moo Creamery. Upcoming months will feature the likes of Morning Glory Confections, Velvet Rope Bakeshop, and Le Bon Garcon. The tasting is free to the public, and the oils will be sold at a discount to those who attend the event. And in case you miss it, the food crafters' wares will be for sale at the bodega next door to the Market after each installment.
