Last Thursday, we teamed up with our friends at RIVIAN for a special field dinner installment of our seasonal potluck supper club. The beauty of Fall in Southern California was on fullllllllllll display.
RIVIAN's brand mission statement is "keep the world adventurous forever", which is a sentiment we can certainly get behind. They brought some of their R1T trucks and we all cooked tacos on the tailgate of the coolest electric car we've ever driven.
Josh and Alex from RIVIAN brought shrimp and pollo tacos. Our own Jesse Inman took some fish from Borch and some Elk from your author and whipped up a dazzling assortment of tacos, tortas, and quesadillas. (Each more delicious than the one before it.)
A handful of folks even took the RIVIAN truck & SUV for a test drive on PCH.
As you may already know, our day jobs (in addition to running this here wild food club) involve operating a surfboard business in Costa Mesa called Almond Surfboards—which is how we came to befriend the RIVIAN folks. We have some more fun stuff in the works with them as they near the launch of their new retail location in downtown Laguna Beach (our neighbor to the south). Stay tuned for more on that in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, tell us your best stories from this Fall and your recent dips into the untamed in search of worthy table fare.
Big thanks to everyone who came out on Thursday night. We're already looking forward to the next wild food potluck.
