Farm to Food Truck Challenge at SoCo Farmers’ Market in Costa Mesa

Posted on November 19, 2012 | 10:48am

To celebrate their second birthday, the SoCo Farmers’ Market hosted The Farm to Food Truck Challenge on November 17.  Hundreds of judges, spectators and chefs gathered for the competition set up in the style of the Food Network’s “Chopped” where speed, skill and ingenuity are combined to be crowned the top chef, or in this case, the top truck.  Chefs prepared meals based on pre-selected ingredients.  Because the Farm to Food Truck Challenge  was held at the top famers’ market in Orange County, the five mandatory ingredients – butternut squash, walnuts, pomegranate, kale and mushrooms – were all seasonable.

Costa Mesa Offers Great Halloween Events in Orange County

Posted on October 18, 2012 | 1:59pm

Whether it is a unique costume idea or extra attention to detail while carving a jack-o-lantern, Halloween is a great opportunity to showcase creativity and have fun. Dressing in costume and carving pumpkins are not recent fads. Both of these activities originated from Celtic tradition. Originally, faces were carved into hallowed-out turnips to ward off evil spirits, but European immigrants to the United States continued the tradition with pumpkins. Today, Halloween is more about costumes, candy and scary movies than the pagan harvest festival where it originated. Costumes are not just limited to children – or even people! Many adults attend costume parties, while some even get their pets in the actHalloween is the second most commercially successful holiday in the United States with an average around $2 billion in candy sales alone.
