One of SoCal’s most coveted food events, Food Fare, is set to descend on Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hanger next week with a vast array of local and state-wide chefs, sommeliers and foodies all currently preparing for the occasion.
Part of fundraising efforts for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles (PPLA), Food Fare includes more than 100 local businesses set to impress foodie and critic attendees alike.
This year Chef of the Year will be presented to Clementine’s Annie Miler. Miler owns and operates Clementine, an esteemed bakery-café in Century City and Beverly Hills with a locally-sourced, seasonally rotating menu born from a marriage of Miler’s culinary family background and her travels as a chef, organizers said.
“PPLA Food Fare is pleased to recognize Annie for her outstanding contributions to Los Angeles’ culinary culture as well as her dedication to PPLA’s mission to support community health, education and wellness,” they stated.
In previous years, Food Fare has recognized Santa Monica’s Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken (Border Grill.)
Food Fare began in 1979 with a cooking demonstration by Julia Child and has grown over the last 38 years to become one of Los Angeles’ oldest and most celebrated food events. An annual event, Food Fare is highly anticipated by food lovers, PPLA supporters and the general public as an opportunity to sample the best food and drinks LA has to offer.
Food Fare is hosted by the Planned Parenthood Los Angeles Guild, a group of over 170 members dedicated to providing financial and volunteer support for PPLA.
