The annual Planned Parenthood Food Fare has been called one of Los Angeles’s most highly anticipated gastronomic events. For us, it was an opportunity to learn new ideas to incorporate into our home cooking.

Dishes inspired by Mediterranean cuisines were prominent. An Italian-inspired starter, prepared by Suzanne Goin, chef of Lucques, was ricotta crostini (appetizer toasts) topped with a fava bean and pea shoot salad and a mint-Meyer lemon salsa. Her light, refreshing chilled red pepper soup with basil, which gained a Middle Eastern accent from sumac, was a delicious complement to the rich crostini. (See recipe.)
