Enjoying near Extinct Edibles
Nearly 100 people enjoyed the newly renovated garden at the Anneliese School in Laguna Canyon during the “Ark of Taste” event earlier this month. It featured foods facing extinction and eight Orange County chefs, including Laguna Beach’s Ryan Adams of 370 Common and Debra Sims from Maro Wood Grill.
“By bringing public awareness to these foods, we hope to inspire people to seek them out and find more ways to use them, encourage farmers to grow them, chefs to cook with them, and stores to carry them,” says Linda Elbert, of Slow Foods Orange County, which sponsored the event along with SEEDS, a local nonprofit.
