Are You a Budding Taco Genius? The Eat Real Fest Wants Your Secrets

Are you a taco master? Do your friends bypass taquerias and trucks to feast on your famed homemade tacos de lengua? The folks at Oakland's upcoming Eat Real Festival, a celebration of street food in Jack London Square the weekend of August 28, want you to send them your favorite recipe, with bonus points for tortillas and salsa from scratch.

Winner gets two tickets to Eat Real's Beer Shed (value: $40, or $50 at the door), which promises to offer the best of Northern California's artisanal beers, selected by David McLean of Magnolia Brewpub. In addition, the recipe will be posted on the Civil Eats Web site, and included in the taco-themed produce and fruit box Eat Real is developing with the Fruit Guys, the office fruit delivery service. Send your recipe posthaste to, since the contest ends July 6.
