Salinas, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2011
Tanimura & Antle, leading grower of fresh vegetables, is gearing up to showcase fresh produce at the First Annual Los Angeles Food and Wine. The company, an event sponsor, is bringing their in-house chef to prepare the Artisan Family of products at two venues, serving up unique and delicious culinary creations to further engage consumers and chefs with this growing produce line.
Tanimura & Antle will be passing out packaged samples of Artisan Lettuce and Artisan Romaine to attendees of the Lexus Grand Tasting on both Saturday and Sunday, October 15 and 16 at the LA Live Event Deck. Chef Don Ferch will be serving a different dish each day at this venue, featuring Tanimura & Antle Artisan® Romaine, Lettuce and Sweet Onions. “We have been a sponsor of the Pebble Beach Food and Wine for the past four years. So, it is our pleasure to participate in this inaugural event and showcase our fresh produce in the LA area at this unique culinary setting,” comments Diana McClean, Director of Marketing.
On Saturday afternoon, Tanimura & Antle will be serving up grilled Artisan Romaine Lettuce at Guy Fieri’s Brew – B’Que on the Santa Monica Pier. “You don’t necessarily think of lettuce when you think barbeque. This is our chance to change some minds in a beautiful and dynamic setting,” comments Mrs. McClean.
