The beloved OC Fair is back in Costa Mesa from July 15th through August 14th. for “Feel the Sunshine.” If you love to cook or love to eat, this is the place to meet! “Culinary Arts is again taking center stage at the 2022 OC Fair in the OC Promenade. The Main Stage there is booked every day throughout the fair and will be host to chefs, bakers, farmers, floral artists, food bloggers, mixologists, brewers, butchers and more. (Every evening there’s a great band to provide music.)”
The OC Fair’s long-time Agriculture Education and Culinary Arts Supervisor, Evy Young, continues as our knowledgeable guide to all the delights in the OC Promenade and the happenings in Centennial Farm.
Team USA (Head Chef Jeffery Hayashi and Commis Franco Fugel) competed in Santiago, Chile, last Thursday in the Bocuse d’Or Americas Selection vying to be one of the five teams of eight participating to be able to move on to the bi-annual Bocuse d’Or in Lyon France in January of 2023.
Team USA had 5 hours and 35 minutes (following the Bocuse d’Or format) to prepare and showcase their elaborate platter interpretation of Salmon and a plated vegetarian theme with quinoa. Team USA was awarded First Place for their considerable effort and moves on to Lyon in January.
Congratulations Team USA!
