Orange County Gets Its Own Version of the Edible Magazine Empire

If you've been to enough farmers' markets, you'll eventually encounter a magazine called Edible, pertaining to the area the farmers market serves: Edible Los Angeles. Edible San Diego. Edible Ventura. Edible Coto de Caza--kidding!

Kind of. This month sees the debut of Edible Orange County, our entry into the sustainable sweepstakes.

The Edible series ain't exactly Gastronomica, and the first OC edition ain't exactly local or even about food--some guy goes chasing mostly LA-based luxe loncheras, and there's a feature on local harp players. Um, okay. But the issue's saving grace was a profile of a local farm--I'd give more specifics, but you should pick up an issue yourself. We welcome Edible Orange County to la naranja's continuing food conversation and wish it well!

Hi! I'm the guy who wrote the articles on the lunch trucks, pear harvest and harp renaissance in Edible Orange County referred to above. I just wanted to say THANKS! for your interest, Gustavo. I love your columns in the LA and OC Weeklys! I've been reading them with great pleasure for years. You are a genius! It is such an honor that you checked out my work! Those are fair comments you make - I'm not a farm specialist, just trying to find items of interest for our OC readers. Believe it or not, I have a Masters in Precolumbian Art History from UCLA. There's not a lot of farms left in OC to really report on much, but we do have a regular reporter who will be addressing that. - Bill


Speaking of magazines, how come Riviera scooped OC Weekly on Shaheen Sadeghi of 'LAB' fame restoring the Sunkist packing house in the beloved nabe you grew up in? That's right...Riviera. The periodical that has a news bureau in the Christian Louboutin shoe store at South Coast Plaza.

On the bright side, though, it could have been OC Metro LOL

That's been rumour for a long time. I haven't seen any work done on it in months—and given that one of my favourite Indian restaurants is directly across the street, I figure I'd see it.


Scooped? Dude, I drive by that development all the time, and have seen a thousand such "rescue" efforts of it. I won't believe it until its grand opening--TRUST ME...
