SLO CAL Restaurant Month from Afar

Posted January 11, 2021

You might have already heard, but in case you hadn’t… SLO CAL Restaurant Month is back! Have you taken full advantage of all the offers the restaurants have all around the city? We sure hope so, because they are unbelievable! If you haven’t already, check them out here

At ShareSLO, we want both locals and visitors to enjoy the SLO’s culinary scene. And since outdoor dining might be closed for a bit, we spoke with some local chefs from SLO that are helping us provide you with the best way to enjoy SLO restaurants without leaving your own home. 

Of course we have all heard of takeout and delivery, and that’s great! But what about creating your own home cooked meal with some professional guidance? Chef Will of Farmhouse Corner Market suggests picking up a SLO Farmer’s market cookbook to prepare your favorites at home. 

Buy your ingredients in SLO markets and grocery stores to support your local farmers! And for those visitors who can’t make it to SLO this year, these books are available to be picked up in locations all over the central coast and other regions in the state. This way, you can support local and enjoy a homestyle meal with your loved one!

Not a big fan of cooking? No worries, we have more suggestions on how to enjoy SLO CAL Restaurant month from afar. Pastry Chef Caitlin, of Hotel SLO suggests that now is a great time to buy gift cards. You can always reuse them later on and it’s a great way to show support to SLO’s restaurateurs.  

And if you need some inspo, checkout Chef Caitlin and Chef Will’s SLO picks below… Happy dining!
