La Feria de los Moles
Oaxaca and Puebla's famous dish—the labor-intensive sauce requires over 13 ingredients ranging from chiles to chocolate—gets its own all-day festival at Downtown's historic Olvera Street. Sample over 13 kinds of mole from spicy to sweet and enjoy live Mexican song and dance at the family-friendly fest.
The Supper that Cures Everything
As part of their Fall Bookfest Dinner series, Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne present a dinner with author Ruth Reichl. The Sunday dinner will showcase dishes from Reichl's new book, My Kitchen Year: 136 Recipes that Saved My Life. Expect menu items that will truly represent the healing properties of cooking such as creamed lobster claws on toasted brioche, a heavenly soup-like concoction that includes tomatoes and cream, potatoes and green garlic and a cake for dessert that has been claimed to cure everything. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase Reichl's book for $35 as well as optional wine pairings for $40.
Oktoberfest at Lucques
Lucques, owned by Suzanne Goin and Caroline Styne, welcomes fall with an Oktoberfest-inspired Sunday evening complete with house-made schnapps, sausages, sauerkraut, spaetzle, and pretzels. Choose from German beers and select Austrian wines while enjoying an authentic, savory set menu. At $55 per person, this night of beer, fall dishes and festive attire (encouraged for guests and staff) will delight Angelenos who crave the crisp autumn days which signal Oktoberfests around the city.
