Taste of O.C. | Priscilla Mayfield on food

 

After today, loyal patrons of the little-but-mighty Tuesday farmers market at Irvine Ranch Historic Park will have to reprogram their fruit-and-vegetable GPS. Next week, April 23, the market relocates to Irvine Regional Park—a quick jaunt up Jamboree Road from the original site, and no less charming or historic. The move, due to construction, is temporary and of unknown duration. Take the opportunity to visit the Orange County Zoo while you’re there, and watch out for roaming peacocks.

  • Food Lovers Guide - Vanilla

    Plain vanilla extract is fine for large-batch baking, but vanilla snobs like to play with other varieties, including the skinny, leathery beans. We won’t delve into the classic Mexican-versus-Tahitian debate, except to say we like Tahitian for creamy concoctions and the bolder Mexican in concert with dark chocolate. Find plump, vacuum-sealed beans of both varieties at Surfas Culinary District. Read More
  • Food Lovers Guide - Kouign Amann

    Butter worship is a birthright in Brittany—the French region that invented this transcendent caramelized pastry with the funny name (say Queen a-MAHN). Read More
