Weekend Eats: Thai Food Fest, Project Angel Food, And A Ceviche Pop-Up
The weekend is so close you can practically taste it. Here are the edible events going on in the next few days to keep you occupied -- and sated, for that matter.1st Annual Thai Food Festival:Organized by the Thai Trade Center in Los Angeles and its presenting partners, this Sunday's first official Thai Food Fest will take place at the historic Paramount Pictures Studios from 3:30 - 6 p.m. The goal of the festival is to expose eager eaters to lesser known Thai dishes, so don't come into this expecting tons of phad thai and green curry. There'll also be some unique fusion-y twists, like shrimp donuts with a sweet sauce from Lucky Elephant in San Dimas. General admission ($50) for the Thai Food Festival includes access to culinary discussion panels and demonstrations with celebrity guest chefs, food and drink tastings, and live entertainment. VIP tickets ($75) provide preview admittance to the festivities at 3 p.m. alongside preferred parking. You can find out more info and purchase tickets here.
Project Angel Food: Project Angel Food will be hosting its annual food-lovers event, DELISH, this Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. at the new Siren Cube at Siren Studios in Hollywood. The event will feature an eclectic mix of food and bev stations as well as some how to's and demos, and proceeds go to the nonprofit, whose aim is to assist those with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses in meal prep. Tickets are $100 each or $25 per child (12 and under) and can be purchasedhere.
Ceviche Project Pop-Up: This seafood-focussed pop-up is setting up shop for a Sunday Supper engagement at Barsha Wines & Spirits in Manhattan Beach this Sunday at 5:00 p.m. It's run my Mexico City-born Octavio Olivas and his wife. Olivas used to spend days fishing with his father and making ceviches with his catch, and decided to bring the art form to L.A. Enjoy their inspired dishes with wine pairings by the ocean this weekend, and you just might feel like you've been taken to the shores of Baja yourself. Tickets can be purchasedhere.
