LA Times’ The Daily Dish features Yoga for Foodies – Combo Plate: Sharp knives, a foodiots weekend, pine mouth and more
-This weekend is shaping up to be a Foodie’s delight: You can start the day by joining Yoga for Foodies at Akasha Restaurant on Sunday for a morning of “deep stretches, great tunes, and locally sourced, farm-to-table food. Then, you could drive to the annual Long Beach Street Food Festival at Rainbow Lagoon Park, near the 710 Freeway and Shoreline Drive from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. And if you leave midafternoon, you can drive back up to L.A. to make the L.A. Street Food Fest.
Then, on Sunday, you can join Joshua Lurie of Food GPS as he hosts a progressive dining tour of Beverly Boulevard with stops at Eva, MILK, BLD and The Golden State. “Each chef-owner will introduce a plate, treat or drink. I’m looking forward to sharing the chefs’ picks with participants.” That’s a lot of driving, but that’s also a lot of good food.
–If you want to learn knife skills, who better to teach you than Chicks with Knives? When they’re not hosting private sustainable suppers around the city, they offer classes. Knife Skills 101 takes place on Sunday Aug. 8 in Hancock Park. No hands on cooking, just everything you need to know about slicing, dicing, knife sharpening and the like. Bring your best 10-in Chef’s knife….
