Locker Family Recipes was thrilled to participate in the breaking ground of LA Kitchen on May 1st. During an unseasonably warm spring evening, 300 guests were welcomed into the warehouse in Los Angeles’ Lincoln Heights neighborhood to experience the space and sample cuisine from local food entrepreneurs. LFR was on hand to support LA Kitchen and spread the kugel love with samples of our delicious Aunt Nonie’s Vanilla Cinnamon Kugel. Each bite of noodily goodness produced a smile and many guests stopped by for seconds…nothing makes us happier!
Of course, we weren’t the only ones tempting guests with gourmet treats! Pasadena’s Dog Haus Dogs served up a tasty all beef hot dog topped with tangy cheese sauce, jalapenos and friend onion strings…umm, yum! Freshology’s cold spring pea soup shots were a lovely emerald green and the perfect antidote to the muggy temperatures. And, our taste buds were happily tricked by Nary Dairy’s raw, probiotic, fermented, vegan cashew cheese…it tastes just like goat cheese and is completely addicting spread on crackers or veggies!
We truly enjoyed taste testing our talented fellow vendors and continue to be inspired by LA Kitchen and their mission:
- Eliminate waste by accessing local produce otherwise tossed for cosmetic reasons
- Provide job training for marginalized men and women coming out of prison or teens in foster care so they can secure employment in the food industry
- Create meals for the elderly, after-school programs, addiction treatment centers, and the homeless
