What’s the best way to justify enormous amounts of daytime debauchery?… Do it in Malibu!
Los Angeles Magazine held its 7th annual Food Event in beautiful Saddlerock Ranch in Malibu, and besides ruining a pair of suede boots not meant for ranching—I had quite the glamorous time!
With more than 73 booths it was hard to decide what to eat and drink first! My favorite dishes were sandwiches from Milo + Olive and lamb burgers from Barbrix. I was also very pleasantly surprised by the dish served by Westside Tavern—yes that place in the mall next to the movie theater! It certainly has me rethinking the Westside Pavilion!
There were more than 20 vineyards represented, but my favorite wine find was from Casa Dumetz in Los Alamos, California. Even cuter was the vineyard’s owner who was live in the booth as well as on the bottle!
I ended my afternoon with a salted caramel ice cream from Drunken Udder. All I can say is…Mooove over Haagen Daaz!
This was my first food fest, but I recommend it to anyone who has taste buds!
It was a great way to try the best of Los Angeles in one afternoon.
