Planned Parenthood Los Angeles Food Fare A Big Success In Santa Monica:

By Helene Cetner

Planned Parenthood Los Angeles’ annual Food Fare event returned to Santa Monica on Thursday, which for its 36th year, hosted prominent local chefs, caterers, wineries, breweries, and vendors to serve and chat with Planned Parenthood supporters, at its food-centric fundraiser.

The event, which took place in at the Barker Hangar, was a splendidly delicious, fan-fared cross-section of multiple L.A. eateries and chefs.

Scrumptious samplings were had by all, as well as many booths of clothing, jewelry, and drinks accompanied.

A specialized grilled cheese truck was also there, with very yummy sandwiches.

Among the dozens of restaurants participating this year were: Angelini Osteria, Salt’s Cure, Chichen Itza, MexiKosher, Little Beast Restaurant, Pink’s Famous Hot Dogs, Boneyard Bistro, Pinches Tacos, BOA Steakhouse, Umami Burger, The Grilled Cheese Truck, James’ Beach, Blue Plate Oysterette, and Sushi Roku.

For dessert, there were confections from Sugar Rush, Beachy Cream, Pazzo Gelato, Valerie Confections, Jamaica’s Cakes, Sweet Lady Jane, and more.

More than 100 chefs were on hand throughout the fundraiser’s daytime and evening sessions, and Food Fare honored its 2015 Chefs of the Year: Top Chef Seattle runner-up Brooke Williamson and her husband Nick Roberts, whose three L.A. restaurants — Playa Provisions, Hudson House and The Tripel, served at the event.

A beer garden, hosted by L.A.’s own The Beer Gals, poured brews from local craft breweries, and California wine and spirit makers were also on hand.
