We are beyond psyched that two masters of Crop to Cup will be demo-ing at Santa Monica Farmer’s Market on August 2 — and for a great cause!
Chef David Lentz (The Hungry Cat) and mixologist Matt Biancaniello (Author of Eat Your Drink) will be demo-ing summer libations using the market’s herbs, vegetables, and fruit on Wednesday, August 2 from 10 am to 1 pm. Chef Suzanne Goin (Lucques, Taver, The Larder, a.o.c.) and the Lentz/Goin children will be on hand to sell the farm-driven drinks, as part of the L.A. Loves Alex’s Lemonade Kids’ Campaign, founded by Goin, husband Lentz, and business partner Caroline Styne. All proceeds will go to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation. (ALSF), an organization committed to finding a cure for pediatric cancer.
The Farm Fresh Drink Demo will take place at Third Street Promenade at Arizona Avenue in Santa Monica.
