TheTasteCC55

For the past few years, the LA Times has hosted The Taste, a three-day food festival at Paramount Studios. But they’ve just taken things up a notch with the announcement of a brand new (and, get this, month-long) festival called Food Bowl. For the entire month of May, the city will fill with food programs, pop-up dinners, internationally renowned chefs (Massimo Bottura, chef-owner of Osteria Francescana and the subject of a Chef’s Table episode, will be one of the participants) and a slew of other events and specials. The focal point of the event is Night Market, an outdoor food market held at Grand Park from May 10-14. With over 50 restaurants and food trucks, live entertainment and drinks each night, it’s poised to be a summer staple similar to 626 Night Market and Chinatown Summer Nights.

The Fry Girl Truck | Street Food LA: Food Truck Profile

Lastweek, we had the pleasure of hanging out with our good friend Shelley Beals at the official Fry Girl Food Truck launch party at The Mark for Events on Pico in beautiful Beverly Hills! We last featured “The Fry Girl Inc” and their specialty fried foods several years back during the first food truck/food cart craze and have become good friends and worked with the team on the catering side at various gigs including private parties from weddings, sweet 16’s and many celebrity events that we will keep under wraps. During all of these events Shelley was always asked when the food truck would be added to her arsenal so she could hit the streets of LA. Well, the big PINK food truck is wrapped and ready and its already had great success roaming the streets of LA and don’t be surprised when it comes to an event near you.
