Southern California has such a diverse culture that appreciates many different things. Nowhere else does this diversity appear more in than within the cuisine here. Southern California houses so many different types of food that keeping track of them all turns into a job rather than a chore. Luckily, Southern California has food events, such as Gourmetzia, that allow visitors to experience what Southern California has to offer to your curious taste buds. Gourmetzia took a year off, last occurring in 2014. It returned this past weekend to The Reef in Downtown Los Angeles, bringing along with it a slew of local designer goods for our eyes and mouths. At Gourmetzia, this two-day all-ages event allows visitors to stroll through the numerous aisles filled with local food and wellness vendors, where visitors can sample products, purchase products, or receive information about services for future business. Although this past weekend’s event did not carry as many vendors as other similar food events that have taken place at this same venue, many visitors showed up eventually, making for a great customer to vendor ratio. Around every corner, most products sold consisted of snacks, especially jerky, or dessert, such as cookies, cupcakes, candy, and more. I would anticipate that anyone arriving without a sweet tooth may feel left out of the many vendors present. Regardless, Gourmetzia did a great job of stocking a diverse lineup of vendors.

Will Gourmetzia return again next year? It operates similarly to other events that take place here, yet costs significantly more. The admission fee did not provide unlimited food samples, since most of the vendors sold products and did not sample as much. Perhaps if Gourmetzia costs less to attend and they add more vendors, they could represent an event that people will want to come back to over and over.
