Cooks Confab- Street Food

Last Saturday’s Cooks Confab Street Food at Little Italy Mercato was a huge success! A great early morning turnout to see some of San Diego’s best chefs turning out quick bites and even cooking with their kids.  100% of proceeds from the event went to ARTS- A Reason To Survive  www.areasontosurvive.org. Thanks to all those who participated in the event and purchased tickets in support of this wonderful organization– you helped raise over $9000!!
Some highlights included:
