Hatch Chiles Have Returned to Gelson’s

Hatch Chilis at Gelson’s.

The highly anticipated Hatch chile seasonal celebration at Gelson’s returns to La Cañada Flintridge on Saturday, Aug. 26, from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The Hatch chile roasting event includes sampling of Hatch chile favorites, contests and giveaways.
Grown in Hatch, New Mexico, Hatch chilies are a mildly hot and savory pepper that, when perfectly roasted, yields a uniquely delicious flavor, both spicy and sweet. While the Hatch Chile Festival annually attracts thousands of visitors from around the world to this small farming community every Labor Day weekend, Gelson’s brings its own festival to pepper-loving customers across Southern California.
Activities include sampling Hatch chile specialty items, learning about the growing process from produce experts, and receiving cooking ideas from Gelson’s staff. The service deli will have Hatch chile heirloom tomato salad, Hatch chile macaroni and cheese, Hatch chile stuffed flank roll, Hatch chile cornbread, Hatch chile chicken sausage, Hatch chile crab cake or Hatch chile mini-crustless quiches. Gelson’s staff will be on-site roasting fresh chiles.
