First time to Rockridge Out & About Festival Sunday 9/26/10. It was a Spare The Air Day and I took Rockridge Bart over. It's right outside once you exit Bart so very convenient for everyone.
FREE chef demos all day long. I stayed most of the day here. Ceviche, butterscotch pot de creme, Lobster bisque soup, Tara's ice cream, red polenta w/ meat, learning to make pie crust, I left after that. It was very interesting and samples after each demo was AWESOME!!
Lots of good eats it seems. Picnic In the Streets - Cactus Taqueria, Hapuku Fish Shop, Market Hall Bakery, etc.
Oliveto Porchetta sandwich $8 + $2 Lemonade - will try that next time.
Wood Tavern was open - I should have tried the Pastrami Sandwich $10 - next time.
Worth checking out next year.
Did other Chowhounds go?
