Artisanal LA

Pop-up Artisanal LA at the Armory in Pasadena was a big success, with over 40 fantastic vendors. The crowd was big enough that there was some bumping, but everyone was mellow and there was a good comraderie, so no jostling. It was hard to pass up most of the vendors, and I am still kicking myself for forgetting to go back and get mustard and Viking Biscotti.

My lunch consisted of a sandwich from The market on Holly, with a big hunk of chicken, roasted red pepper and an olive. Then for dessert I had a fantastic pumplin cake from Morning Glory Confections with Marscapine icing and crunches of brittle. But I was looking for Creme Caramel and had so many samples I left happy.
