Edible Los Angeles Announces Another Fishing Trip

Our colleagues at edible Los Angeles invite Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends to another fishing trip extraordinaire with some of the finest seafood chefs and enthusiasts in Los Angeles. Details below from Lucy Lean, editor of edible Los Angeles:

After Chef Michael Cimarusti of Providence restaurant fished with edible Los Angeles for a Sea to Plate story for our summer issue back in April, we planned another outing. More chefs joined the party–and more fun was had. 

The two trips were such a success that we’ve been asked to plan another voyage! We’ve yet to get our summer fill of tasty sand dabs, rock fish and others; and in the spirit of building our edible Los Angeles community we have obliged to set out fishing once again.

For our latest outing we have David LeFevre (Water Grill), Curtis Stone (Take Home Chef), Neal Fraser (Grace), Steven Fretz (XIV), Brian Moyers (BLT), Josiah Citrin (Melisse), Andrea Cavaliere (Cecconi’s) and our very own mixologist for the boat Vincenzo (Copa D’Oro) all signed up to come aboard, plus a few others who have been invited but are yet to confirm.

They get to come if they bring along some delicious potluck snacks for us all to share, plus recipe ideas for the fish caught and you get to come if you can hook a ticket.

If you would like the opportunity to fish with this esteemed bunch you’ll have to act fast: We are only offering 30 tickets:

When: Sunday, July 19, 2009 from 12.30pm until 6:00pm
Where: 22nd Street Landing, San Pedro
Cost: Tickets are available for $100.00 per person on a first-come, first-sold basis via Brown Paper Tickets.

You bring: A rod and a fishing license (both available to hire/buy at the dock), sunscreen, and a smile! As well as the edible Los Angeles treats the chefs are bringing aboard there are drinks (including beer) and food sold on the boat.

All ticket sales are non-refundable.
