All Food, All the Time at This Weekend's Patchwork Show Edible Edition

SoCo Collection is a natural home for the foodcentric event

Costa Mesa’s SoCo Collection is already a hub for O.C. food, with its Saturday farmers market, Surfas chef supply, plus The OC Mix’s cutting-edge restaurants and third-wave leader Portola Coffee Lab. So it seems a natural site for this weekend’s inaugural Patchwork Show Edible Edition, the all-food-all-the-time version of the biannual, multi-location Patchwork craft shows founded by Delilah Snell and Nicole Stevenson.

Certified master food preserver Snell, who owns Santa Ana’s Road Less Traveled, and Stevenson, a writer and designer of her own Random Nicole clothing line, have planned a roster of chef demos and how-to panels with local fooderati like OC Baking’s Dean Kim on bread, and fire-powered Arc chef Noah Blom grilling the perfect steak. An artisanal food marketplace will showcase sellers of handmade goods, and a panel with public health agencies from O.C. and surrounding counties will field questions from would-be home food producers about the new Cottage Food Act.

Patchwork Edible Edition is open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and 11 to 5 Sunday. You can see the complete schedule of events here—it’s a packed two days.
