This Weekend: Do Good, Eat Well

There are two delicious fundraisers this weekend! On Saturday, June 19th Eat My Blog bakesale is back with even more contributors/bakers than last time! Then on Sunday, June 20th Nina's Foods, Vendy Awards winner, will be serving up some pambazo, pozole and more at Angeli Caffe in order to afford their own food truck!

Saturday, June 19th

This bakesale benefiting the LA Regional Food Bank is an epic one. With 85 bakers from foodbloggers to local bakeries including Plaisir and BakeLAB pitching in, the menu is looking mighty attractive. Momofuku crack pie or Kahlua cheesecake brownie, anyone? Or for the non-sweet-toothed, there are always bacon-wrapped breadsticks!

Come early so they don't run out!

Tender Greens, 8759 Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood. 10am-4pm.

Sunday, June 20th

Ever since winning the Vendy's Awards, Nina's Foods has become popular. Too popular. Because of their popularity, they've been getting hounded by the authorities because ... well, they're not supposed to be selling on the streets.

But it would be such a shame to lose Nina's, one of LA's culinary gems! So Evan Kleiman from KCRW's Good Food wants to put Nina's in a truck. To do so, they're holding a fundraiser at Angeli Caffe this Sunday. So why not take your dad out for a pambazo on Father's Day? He'd probably like that better than frou frou brunch, no?

On the menu will be pambazos, gorditas with huitlacoche, pozole, Nina's salsa seca, and more! Drinks like agua de sandia and some beers will also be available.

Angeli Caffe, 2533 West 3rd Street, Suite 101, Los Angeles, California 90057. 11-3 PM



Thank you for your support, Fi! We look forward to fattening you up on Saturday ;-)
