Last week, in a video, I introduced you to three great artisan vendors which I met at this Fall’s Artisanal LA (aka foodie’s paradise!). Artisanal LA is a 2 day event in which guests can sample from some of the best artisanal food vendors in LA and around the country.
I had the opportunity to taste and purchase handmade goodies and meet some really talented small business owners. I spoke with them and learned about their delicious, often healthy, always tasty, handcrafted edibles and crafty finds.
In this Part 2 segment: I bring you “pasteles,” a Puerto Rican staple, which has been perfected at Old San Juan, a local Atwater Village restaurant. We’re also introduced to Bruce Kalman, a local chef and pickler who’s making people go ape for his prime pickling practices. Lastly, we meet Kevin Glaab who, with his wife Tristan, makes truly cool and eco chick rustic furniture designs right here in California.
