Trending Toast - Superba Food+Bread, Venice

In early February I went to Los Angeles. Los Angeles can be a lot of fun if you don’t have to live there (sorry, Los Angeles). There is the ocean, fresh seafood, lots of sun, beautiful people making movies, and there is a seemingly unending amount of good food to be had.

At this point in the day I was stuffed to the brim with enough glorious food from the Charleston area to make even the most disciplined of locavores green with envy. If you and the places you gravitate toward at mealtimes focus on obtaining the freshest possible ingredients locally, you're a locavore.
