Edible Institute Comes to S.B.

Local Food Movement Leaders Converge in S.B.


This weekend, Edible Communities, the publishing collective of quarterly city magazines that include Edible Santa Barbara, brings the Edible Institute to town. The two-day event gathers together some of the area food movement’s biggest names, who will serve up food for thought in lectures, discussions, and demonstrations — and plenty of good food and drink to wash it all down. Among this year’s highlights are Saturday’s keynote speaker, Marion Nestle; Sunday’s appearance by Paul Willis, founder of the Niman Ranch Pork Company; Saturday afternoon’s panel on ocean acidification and oysters, which — not incidentally — will be preceded by oyster and wine pairings; and Saturday night’s gala. It promises to be a feast for the head, as well as the tummy.
