Sapphire Turns 10

It’s hard to believe that Laguna Beach’s Sapphire opened a decade ago! Watch these videos for a behind-the-scenes look at chef Azmin Ghahreman’s international pedigree, his local school food and MAXLOVE charity programs (food is medicine!), and the lesser-known secret behind the name of the restaurant.

Visit Sapphire to “travel around the world without a passport.” It’s a gem that satisfies both local and tourist crowds.

Tarit Tanjasiri is one of the best bakers in the Southland. His croissant and the chocolate pretzel croissant are legendary.
You can get them at his cafe, Crema Cafe or you can get them at some of the top coffee shops around the OC.

The Great Pizza Throwdown of 2017

Orange County’s best chefs locked horns over pizza technique and taste.
It was an epic battle, pitting  Young Guns vs. Veterans.
Watch some of the most competitive chefs in town craft two ridiculously GIANT pizzas then wait in suspense as more than 213 event attendees voted on the winner.
The throw down was at OC Baking. All proceeds went to Bracken’s Kitchen — a truly wonderful cause. Make sure you hit this event next year! We’ll keep you posted about dates.
The gathering also helped promote a highly anticipated new OC restaurant — Centro Collective. Check it.
