If there’s one thing that North County residents enjoy more than the beach, it’s the various cuisine, beverages, and sweet treats throughout San Diego. Here, we offer a taste of some local flavor.


Mama’s Pies

Mama’s Kitchen is holding its 15th Annual Mama’s Pies Thanksgiving Bake Sale through Nov. 24, raising funds for the organization’s nutrition services. More than two dozen of San Diego’s top pastry chefs, caterers, and bakeries are donating their time and talent to bake 4,000 Thanksgiving pies – flavors include pumpkin, traditional apple, pecan, and Dutch apple. To buy a pie and provide meals to neighbors in need go to www.mamaspies.org.
