2013 fair ready to serve up fun

DEL MAR — Media members were given a sampling of what the 2013 San Diego County Fair will offer when it opens June 8 during a May 22 preview that introduced Webster, this year’s mascot, and some of the always-anticipated culinary concoctions.Some of the featured foods this year include Bacon-A-Fair’s cheesy bacon bombs — jack cheese in a biscuit wrapped in bacon and deep fried — grilled cheese sandwiches stuffed with everything from pulled pork with macaroni and cheese to brie and sliced apples and Farrell’s The Zoo, five-and-a-half pounds of ice cream with sprinkles, sauces, whipped cream and the requisite cherry on top.

This year’s creations from Charlie Boghosian, aka Chicken Charlie, are deep-fried cookie dough and Krispy Kreme sloppy joes, literally a labor of love.

“My wife loves sloppy joes and I love doughnuts,” said Boghosian, whose all-time favorite is deep-fried Oreo cookies.

Cooking with CSA, or community supported agriculture, will present the healthier side of eating, demonstrating how to cook with items such as locally grown kale or beets.
