Bloggers armed with spatulas and baking mitts will take hunger into their own hands next Saturday. Following December's successful blogger bake sale spearheaded by two local bloggers, close to 50 kitchen savvy Angelenos will be cooking up a storm to help those in need next week at Morel's Steakhouse.

The bake sale, organized by blogger Gaby Dalkin, will not strictly be confined to Morel's outdoor patio, but will be part of a larger project. Food bloggers across the country will be simultaneously icing cakes and shuffling apple tarts on April 17 with all profits going to Share Our Strengths, an organization that brings together community groups, activists and food programs to help combat childhood hunger. From Alaska to North Carolina, bloggers will be putting their keyboard tapping fingers to do good and satiate appetites.

The weekend bake sale will include bloggers Picky Palate, Fujimama, and Matt Bites, to name a few.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Muffins from WhatsGabyCooking and Chai Bars from Savour Fare will be in plenty supply. Readers will have the chance to break that pesky digitalized fourth wall and taste their favorite blogger's Lemon Curd Tart or discover a new spin on Hazelnut Cappuccino Biscotti.

National Food Bloggers Bake Sale, on Saturday April 17th, from 10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at Morel's French Steakhouse and Bistro, The Grove: 189 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles.

  • Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar
    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
