Food Rendezvous at Sparc in Venice. It's a chance to taste everything from the Full of Life Flatbread we visited last week, to Mark Stambler's Backyard bread to Morning Glory Confections and popsicles from The Pop Shop. Authors like Martha Rose Shulman and Amelia Saltsman will do talks and cooking demos, and there's also movies, gardening workshops and more. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
Chinatown Nights last week, watching little girls twirling to KCRW dj's, people lining up for food trucks and elderly Chinese ladies trying Kung Pao chicken at the cooking demonstration. Deep End Dining's Eddie Lin was last week's jovial cooking demo host; this Saturday is Doreen Fang, from the Next Food Network Star, introducing demos from Golden City and Hop Woo BBQ.
