Cancer Support Community-Redondo Beach’s 15th annual Celebrate Wellness raised $125,000 in net income to benefit support group programs for cancer patients and their families. More than 550 guests sampled tasty fare from a variety of restaurants, wineries and breweries that participated in the late afternoon garden party at South Coast Botanical Gardens.
It’s funny how fads come and go in restaurants. Once upon a time, the measure of a restaurant’s success was its ability to
procure the most foreign and out-of-season exotica possible. In the era of the carbon footprint, however, quite the opposite is true. Featuring only local and seasonal produce is now the real standard for a chef; if you aren’t photographed personally
prowling your neighborhood farmers market in kitchen whites, you might want to consider a new PR firm.
