California State Fair Cottage Food Operator SnackDown Competition

Returning for the 2nd Annual California State Fair Cottage Food Snack Down Competition, July 9, 2016 10:30 am, Building B, Cal Expo. 

I'm not a baker, but I love snacks.  This year I'm going for a savory, less complicated dish than my first competition dish last year, peanut butter pretzel bars (recipe here ).  How does chicken apple brunch bites sound? 

I'll hang around after the competition at their DIY booth handing out samples and selling my wares.  See you there!

Gather-Oak Park - 6/12/14 - 5-9 pm - 3rd & Broadway

Organized by Unseen Heroes, Gather-Oak Park will be held the 2nd Thursday of each month beginning 6/12/14.  A food lover's extravaganza, it will provide food vendors, food trucks as well as sellers of artisanal confections, jams, and other treats. 

Beers In Sac is on tap to curate a craft beer area featuring local brews.  Rebel Confectionery will provide caramels to pair with the beer offerings.  To go with refreshing wit and hefeweizen styles we'll debut our riff on the Side Car Cocktail.  A caramel with brandy, orange essence and a twist of lemon, along with our Earl Grey Tea caramel, highlighting bergamot's citrus flair.

Gather is a means to get out and see what the neighborhood has going on.  To mix and mingle.  A long communal table will honor the event's theme.
