Object of Desire: Tofu spring rolls

It has come to my attention that vegans are angry with me today, what with all the foie gras and all. So as a peace offering, I thought I might point out that Golden Deli, the Vietnamese noodle shop whose crackly cha gio, fried spring rolls, have been fetish objects in the San Gabriel Valley [...]

The foie gras wars get meta at Melisse

Melisse, the Santa Monica restaurant of chef Josiah Citrin, is about as luxe, calme et volupté as things get in Los Angeles, a subdued Santa Monica dining room with two Michelin stars.

Recipe Box: For the serious snackers

It's three-o-clock in the afternoon and you're feeling low on energy. A growling stomach tells you there's no way your 11:30 lunch will keep you sane 'til dinner. Snacktime is a daily dilemma most everyone faces. It's a serious problem that if not treated quickly or properly can result in severe crankiness. In my case, [...]

New at Papilles: BYOB Tuesday & Wednesday; French wines get in free

When I saw the subject line of the email — “BYOB@papilles,” I thought, uh-oh, not another note from a disgruntled guest who found out, too late, that the Hollywood French bistro doesn’t allow outside bottles. I was already drafting my answer when I opened the message. Wrong — and happily so. This was a note [...]

Forklore: How sweet it is

Manna isn't just a miraculous food that saved the Children of Israel during the Exodus. There are a number of mannas in the modern world, all being sweet things that appear mysteriously. One is Lecanora esculenta, a sweet lichen that grows in the deserts of the Near East. Most mannas are droplets of sugar that [...]

We’re looking for a few (more) good butchers. Can you help?

My story about the return of good butchers drew a couple of email responses that made me think. Wayne DeBord commented: "I can't tell you how I miss the corner butchers that were in every corner grocery when I was a kid.
