No longer is Orange County behind Los Angeles in gourmet food trends. The hottest food trend these days are gourmet food trucks. Gourmet tacos, pancakes, ice cream cookie sandwiches, shaved ice, and more are mobile now. Ditch the old notion that food has to be confined in a building. Instead of having to drive far away for sumptuous delicacies, they are being hand delivered to you! The first annual OC Foodie Fest is scheduled for Saturday, August 28th 2010 from 11:30 AM – 7:00 PM at the Honda Center. Enjoy all the luxuries of the most popular gourmet food trucks from OC and LA in one place.
Notable Chefs like Chef Ludo Lefebvre, who has been named “The Chef of The Future” by Time Magazine, will be there with his Ludo Truck. Having been to Ludo Bites 1.0 – 5.0, nothing beats his succulent fried chicken. OC-ites will not have to fret that they were not able to make a reservation to Ludo Bites 5.0 since his famous Fried Chicken will be available at the OC Foodie Fest. Get them while they are piping hot, fresh from the fryer, and from the Top Chef Masters himself. Believe it or not, but the chicken tastes better from their specially designed truck!
The infamous Cool Haus, The Buttermilk Truck, Crepes Bonaparte, and much more are scheduled to be there. Fifty gourmet food trucks from all over will be serving tastings of their ingenious creations at a special price of $1-$5 so that everyone can have room to sample all the trucks.
Many eclectic live bands will be performing throughout the day. The headliner band is the Anaheim-based folk/soul rock band, Dusty Rhodes and The River Band. Team Breed of Boogiezone, Team Millenia, and The Beat Freaks from MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew (ABDC) are scheduled to perform. The event will be family and kids friendly. Pretend City Children’s Museum has set up an entertainment area for kids of fun and educational activities. Come support local artists and businesses offering distinct art, handmade crafts, and unique clothing. Portion of the proceeds will be donated to local charities. The OC Foodie Fest will be the place to be to taste the delectable creations both Orange County and Los Angeles has to offer, dance along to the jamming music, watch great artists perform, grab a drink at the Beer and Wine Bar, have a splendid time!
