Oh, the Places I Go ...

A Pictoral tour of event coverage 

and food festivities ~

One of my favorite foodie friends Bobby Navarro hosted the first-ever PigOut 1.0 in Orange County. Raising money for his non-profit Inspire Artistic Minds, 15 of OC's best chefs shared their favorite pig-centric dishes. | August 5, 2012  100eats100days.com/store/pigout

An assignment that didn't involve food - well except for the petite little munchies they served at this boutique opening. Corona Del Mar welcomes Delano Lifestyle Activewear to the strip of chic boutiques opening up on PCH. Visit http://www.localemagazine.com/ for my full review. | June 2012

My favorite new local healthy hotspot: Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop. I was invited to a private tasting, and sampled everything from their gourmet flatbread pizzas, to specialty salads and sandwiches to their beautiful and seasonal side dishes like this Quinoa Salad. Check out the July 2012 issue of LOCALE for my review of Greenleaf in the article VS. NKOTB. | July 2012
