How about some tuna beer? L.A. Beer Week skeds sudsy, prickly fun

Not tuna fish, yuck! (Although there is a smoked salmon beer in Israel.) No, tuna means prickly pear in Spanish, and it’s the theme ingredient of this year’s L.A. Beer Week — which is actually 11 days long, since there are so many beer events to fit in. Eagle Rock Brewery has brewed up the [...]


Mess Hall: Los Feliz’s rustic/urban retreat opens this weekend

The historic building on the corner of Los Feliz and Hillhurst that started as Willard’s Chicken Shack then became famous as the Brown Derby had hit a rough patch over the last few years. When I first moved to the area, we had an over-priced steakhouse dinner at Michael’s, as it was known after the [...]

Curtis Stone’s new cookbook: Seeing how the sausage (and ribs, and cookies) are made

Gaby from What’s Gaby Cooking, left, and other friends sample Curtis’s food, as Sully the dog looks on. I’m no cooking blogger, but as an enthusiastic home cook (not to mention "Top Chef Masters" and "Around the World in 80 Plates" fan), I felt lucky to be invited to chef Curtis Stone’s house to watch [...]


L.A. Food and Wine’s Asian Night Market rocked L.A. Live; Ming Tsai’s Dim Sum for beginners

People actually dancing at a tasting event! Last weekend’s L.A. Food and Wine Festival rang in a second successful year headquartered at L.A. Live, though the event’s August timing means it’s likely that daytime events under the tent can be stifling. As tasting events go, this one is mega-sized — with dozens of events in [...]


Portland, Maine: Bagels, beer and Bigfoot make it just as groovy as its West Coast cousin

Bite into Maine lobster trailer at Portland lighthouse Still a California girl, I had never been north of New Hampshire before, so a recent week in Rhode Island seemed like a good excuse to drive up to Maine. Lured by lobster and having heard that Portland is a great beer town, I was eager to [...]


Andrew Zimmern, Guy Fieri, Paul Prudhomme, Ming Tsai and more hit town for L.A. Food and Wine festival

This weekend, well-known chefs and food personalities are hitting town for the lavish, spread-out Los Angeles Food and Wine festival at L.A. Live, in Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. Though they’re both sold out, I’m looking forward to tasting food from The Slanted Door’s Charles Phan and TV’s Ming Tsai, who will be at [...]


Hoy Ka Thai Noodles: Familiar flavors with a new name

 BBQ trio of pork over rice The Thai town restaurant scene is constantly evolving, and though old favorites like Jitlada, Sapp and Ruen Pair are still going strong, it’s always worth checking out the newer — or renamed — entries. Formerly Ord Noodles, now spiffed up with a new sign and known as Original Hoy [...]


Roadfood’s ruin: What hath Guy Fieri wrought?

Like other food-obsessed Americans, I spent the years before the Internet poring over Jane and Michael Stern’s guidebooks Roadfood and Goodfood. I dog-eared, highlighted and nearly memorized them as we drove from L.A. to New Orleans to Memphis, through Nebraska and Iowa and back. We hit many of the temples to regional American cooking, from [...]
