This Saturday, Feb. 25, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Surfas Test Kitchen, Joe Miller will demonstrate how he would prepare his box of CSA loot. Miller is the chef-owner behind 20-year-old Joe's in Venice, known for its commitment to Cal-French cuisine using fresh ingredients, many from local farmers markets. (It's known for a Michelin star, too.) Miller also runs Bar Pintxo, the Santa Monica tapas spot open since 2007.
A Sustainable Kitchen is presenting the free event. The Venice-based organization aims to cultivate ideas for "sustainable solutions" among farmers, chefs, community groups, the general public and even the U.S. Green Building Council. Founder Annette Eason, a former chef, also leads a company dedicated to sustainable design and architecture. The event, titled "A Sustainable Kitchen 3.0," is one in a series of activities and demonstrations that intend to educate the public about sustainable food practices.
