California Avocado Season Celebration Details

Who’s Coming

Esteemed guests include Registered Dietitian, Michelle Dudash; California Avocado Grower, Mary Bergen; and most importantly – YOU – California Avocado lovers!

Dress Code

All of our celebrations are taking place online or in your own kitchen. If you’re comfy chatting about California Avocado facts, recipes and nutrition in your PJs, that’s great. If you’d like to don your best tux, that’s acceptable as well – just make sure you don’t spill guac on your fancy digs!

Three ways to Celebrate California Avocado Season

What & When

Since your schedule may be busy, I’ve outlined three ways to celebrate California Avocado season this year:

1. Starting NOW! Avocado Grower Q&A

Who can address California Avocado questions better than a California Avocado grower? We’ll let grower Mary Bergen give you the details about this event, and how your question for her could score you and another winner a FREE shipment of California Avocados in the video below.

Already thought of a question for Mary? Leave it in the comments below and let your friends on Twitter know you’re celebrating with us by clicking to tweet, here! Mary will answer two questions and announce the winners on April 17, so make sure to check back!

3. Cook with California Avocados & Other Produce In-Season for Spring

Start your day with a delicious breakfast that includes California Avocados like breakfast tacos, smoothies or avocado on toast (we have a whole section dedicated to avocado breakfast recipes here). When it comes to lunch, pack a fresh avocado salad-in-a-jar or one of these five avocado salads and sandwiches. Complete your day with these avocado dinner ideas and top it off with Avocado Key Lime Pudding or Avocado Cake with Raspberry Filling and Key Lime Buttercream Frosting. Just talking about it makes me hungry.

I hope you’re as excited as I am for this year’s California Avocado season! I look forward to reading all of your questions for Mary Bergen in the comments below and chatting with you and Michelle Dudash on Twitter on April 7th!
