San Diego food happenings

Plenty of things going on around town. Here's the latest:

Fast organic food, and local too? Union-Tribune reviews Lean & Green, a new restaurant in La Jolla that not only features organic cuisine, but also buys much of its produce from our local Be Wise Ranch. Sounds like a great lunch place to me!

Fancy Food Show participants take a tour of sustainable and local eating in San Diego Alice Q. Foodie leads a group from the Fancy Food Show on a grand tour, from the Linkery in North Park to sample local pastured goat, to La Milpa Organica in Escondido for some wood-fired pizzas and a farm tour, to A.R. Valentien in Del Mar, and finally to Waters in Solana Beach. If I could only be so lucky! Follow the link to see pictures and more details.

Free Screening of "The Future of Food" sponsored by Home Intl is taking place on Tuesday, Jan 15 (7:00 p.m.) at Lestats in Normal Heights. I rented this documentary about genetically modified food from Kensington Video last week and highly recommend it. RSVP for the event by emailing or by calling Home Intl at 619.330.9798.

Free Screening of “The Real Dirt on Farmer John" is taking place on Wednesday, Jan 30 (5:30-7:30 p.m.) at Serra Mesa-Kearny Mesa Branch Library. Read what I thought of this film here.

Open-Air Farmers’ Market for City Heights in the works A collaborative is starting an Open-Air Farmers’ Market in City Heights. They're inviting local backyard/community and school gardeners to sell product at the market in addition to the standard vendors. If you’d like to be involved in the planning, there is a meeting on Thursday, Jan 24 (6:00pm – 7:30pm). Follow the link to San Diego Food Not Lawns above for more info. RSVP is requested.
