WHAT:        Nino “Neens” Camilo, founder of the I Love Poke Festival, one of the most successful, and always sold out, food festivals in San Diego and Orange County, has teamed up with Baker & Olive to create a new annual event, NorthEats.

Curated by Camilo, NorthEats is a showcase of all that is North County San Diego in this part food, part lifestyle event that will feature only chefs, restaurants and food brands based north of the 56-freeway.

There will be tastings from 20 North County restaurants, food demonstrations, live music by Ray Barbee and appearances by pro athletes and local celebrities.  In addition, Chris Cote, well-known action sports and television personality and commentator for major surf events like the Volcom Pipe Pro, Globe WCT Fiji, and the US Open of Surfing, will be co-hosting.

The highlight of this festival will be a live cooking competition between two athlete/chef pairings, required to use olive oils and balsamic vinaigrettes from Baker & Olive in their dishes.

$5 of every ticket purchased will be donated to Plant with Purpose, a non-profit that helps reverse deforestation and poverty around the world by transforming the lives of the rural poor.  Please see their short video here:
