Orange Coast Magazine Contests



December 2011 Cover Story
The 50 Best Dishes in O.C. 
Because Orange Coast dining critic Gretchen Kurz knows Orange County restaurants better than anyone, we asked her to choose her 50 favorites from among the thousands of dishes she has sampled in local restaurants. The result is the ultimate foodie bucket list of dishes you simply must try before you die. Some are seasonal. Some are classics. All are memorable. Plus, we share secrets for preparing some of our favorites, including Park Ave chef David Slay’s fabled, deep-fried Crispy Garden Greens. You can learn his technique here. For the full feature, order your December issue here!
