Chef Azmin Ghahreman, together with Sapphire Culinary Group and Sapphire at School, is holding its Sapphire Food Fare on April 28 at St. Margaret’s Episcopal School in San Juan Capistrano. Sapphire Food Fare is a farmers market and culinary experience. It’s a collection of fine foods and produce for sale including: farm-fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs, artisanal breads, cheeses and chocolates, organic grass-fed beef, fresh seafood and local varietals of honey.
Chefs will be on-hand to demonstrate recipes and provide samplings while nutritionists will be available to share advice on how to buy better and eat healthier as families. Last year’s Food Fare attracted more than 1,000 visitors.
