It was a pleasure to photograph an event for Slow Food Ventura at the Daily Dose in DTLA. If you haven't heard of Slow Food, it's a national organization that promotes local and traditional cooking. In other words, fresh local ingredients and slowing down to enjoy them...homemade goat cheese, ethically raised beef, and all!
The event was a symphony of magic put together by Charles Barth (leads the Slow Food Ventura chapter), Chef Sarkis Vartanian (chef and owner of the Daily Dose), Vartan Abgaryan (executive chef 71Above), Chef Rose Lawrence (owner of Red Bread and head pastry chef at Rustic Canyon), artist Eric Junker, and bread by the incredible Céor bread, aka Guy Frenkel.
All proceeds went to relief efforts for Upper Ojai and LA Kitchen. Follow @slowfoodventuracountry for future events!
