Eat Real is heading down to Helms Bakery near Culver City on July 16 and 17 for a giant artisanal food fair. Along with local favorites like Cast Iron Gourmet bacon and Lindy and Grundy are Miracle Mile Bitters and Carlsbad Aquafarm Oysters and localish breweries including Eagle Rock Brewing, Craftsman, The Bruery, Stone and Lost Abbey.
A slew of classes and demonstrations cover DIY subjects from bitters to sauerkraut to steer butchering, pretzel making and an ice cream lab. Music, a food lit fest and more make this a pretty ambitious fair, so we're looking forward to working on our pickles in July. The best part? Entry is free, so all your money can be spent on artisanal jams and such.
