Vendor Spotlight: 118 Degrees & Avanti Cafe

19 Nov

Not only will the owners of both 118 Degrees and Avanti Cafe be leading cooking demos during The Inspired Buyer (check the Activities page for their schedule), but each restaurant will also be selling their delectable goodies during the event. Perfect for an individual present or an addition to a gift basket, Avanti Cafe specializes in an array of handmade food items, such as hot sauces, jams, marinades, spreads, and butters – all made from fresh, local, and mostly organic produce. Yum!

While both restaurants, focus on healthy, vegetarian dishes, 118 Degrees’ specialty is raw cuisine, a.k.a living food that has not been cooked above 118 Degrees. Maintaining the foods essential nutrients and enzymes, you have to taste owner, Jenny Rosses delicious recipes to truly understand how great raw food can be. At The Inspired Buyer she’ll be selling an assortment of her pre-made goodies, including Chipotle Ranch Wraps, Kale Salads, Tames, Tacos, Macadamia Macaroons, and more.

With the Seabirds gourmet food truck also parked at the event throughout the day, I think we got your hungry belly covered!

Hungry Anyone??

29 Oct

Since the goal of The Inspired Buyer is to promote sustainable business, it was only natural that we asked the Seabirds food truck to join us for the festivities. The gourmet veggie restaurant on wheels will be joining us starting at 11am on the day of the event. If you haven’t had a chance to try their tasty creations, you definitely need to head out to The Inspired Buyer on the 21st.

A little background on Seabirds….The truck started out as a dream and a desire – desire for healthy, local food that was convenient and fairly priced. The owners of Seabirds wanted to make a difference not only in the lives of the people of Orange County, but in the world we love and live in. The mission of Seabirds is to bring convenience to high quality, healthful food. They have a 100% plant based menu that changes with the seasons.  Plus they use all organic produce that’s as local as possible, using as much as they can from our neighboring organic farms right here in OC. Raw and Gluten-Free options available too!
