Urban Farmer's Dinner sources food from L.A.'s gardens
Joseph Shuldiner, the multi-talented designer of Eat:Los Angeles, mustard-making maven and author of the upcoming book Pure Vegan, is launching the Institute of Domestic Technology to bring all kinds of home arts to Angelenos. In addition to Foodcrafting and Cheesemaking classes, the Institute is kicking off Saturday, August 6 with a Downtown L.A. rooftop Urban Farmer's Dinner in association with Nick Coe of Black Cat Bakery. Everything will be sourced uber-locally (well, not sure about the lamb), and the growers will be there to mingle.
