Foodstuff Miscellany: Out and About in San Diego

Looking for something interesting and food related to do this spring?

Eat Healthy: This coming Saturday (April 12), a new cable program, Healthy Lifestyles for Kids, will be filming at the Scripps Ranch Farmers Market & Art Festival, beginning at 9 a.m. Take the kids, take the dogs and head on over to EB Scripps Elementary School at 10380 Spring Canyon Rd., just off the I-15 at Scripps Poway Parkway. For more information, go to

Treat Mom: Will Gustwiller at Eclipse Chocolat just had another tasting dinner last week. Now, he's planning Mother's Day Brunch with seatings on May 10 and 11 at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. He's already fully booked for the Sunday 1 p.m. seating, so if you want to go, better hurry up and get a space for you and Mom. The menu is on his blog and the cost is $35 a person. Call for reservations at 619-504-5310.

Do Good: Finally, Mama's Day, the 17th annual Mama's Kitchen fundraiser, is coming up on Friday, May 9, at 6:30 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. Mama's Kitchen is a non-profit that provides nutritional meals to those in San Diego County with HIV/AIDS and other critical illnesses. If you're a foodie and you care about the well being of others in the community, this is the place to be. Some 70 restaurants will be participating, including Jade Theater, Blanca, Parallel 33, The Marine Room, Rice and George's at the Cove. Last year, Mama's Kitchen provided over 319,000 home-delivered meals to its clients, but federal funding is tight and likely to decrease. This event provides nearly 10 percent of the org's annual budget. Tickets are $125 each and can be purchased by calling 619-233-6262 or ordering online at
