Food Rendezvous artisan food market kicks off Aug. 28 in Venice

Local food activists and entrepreneurs Laurie Dill and Dominique Leveuf are launching the Food Rendezvous, a celebration of local food artisans on Saturday, Aug. 28 at SPARC in Venice. The monthly event will include cooking demos, gardening and composting workshops, a cookbook swap, food-themed films and a chance to taste and buy products made in L.A. Each month, authors will be there signing books and cooking. August authors are Martha Rose Shulman and LA Farm Girl Judi Gerber; September's guest will be Jeanne Kelly. Tickets for the event, at $10, are available here.

Here's some of the foods that have signed on so far, with more to come:

It turns out the masterminds behind L.A. Street Food Fest are launching another artisan food event in Downtown L.A. in October. Artisanal L.A. is lining up vendors and events, so no matter which side of town you're on, local food will be featured.

Can't wait to go to this. It will be worth making the trip across town, but I'm also hoping for a more easterly event in the future.
