Giftcrafting at IDT

Giftcrafting at IDT

It’s a workshop. It’s hands-on, and it’s all about food. Some would deem this nirvana (with all of the fun and none of the hassle, i.e., the cycle of reincarnation and working off bad karma). For this near-nirvana experience, Director Joseph Shuldiner and the Institute of Domestic Technology present “Giftcrafting” on November 21. Four 1-hour […]

“The Provocative 15th Century”

“The Provocative 15th Century”

Libraries were being founded in France, Italy, Persia, and England.

Limits

Limits

Limits by Percival Everett In the darkness that is our room, I search. Not for you, for you are sleeping, breathing that sleep breath, Exhaling through that small aperture, good for playing the flute. I search for a darkness within the darkness, Where darkness is pure, Stygian, pure like babies crying And the sound of […]

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo Sprouts

Buffalo wings have been a long-time favorite in my household. Unfortunately, wings are often floured, and even when they’re not, they usually serve up as much saturated fat and cholesterol as they do heat. This recipe banishes the bad stuff, but keeps the spice. Easy to put together, my Buffalo hummus sauce magically transforms Brussels […]

Attire LA Comes to Altadena

Attire LA Comes to Altadena

Attire began as a shop in Culver City with the idea to fill the shop with “a carefully curated collection” of clothing, accessories, and—interestingly enough—art. The idea is to support local brands being produced in Los Angeles and local artists in Culver City and, now with its second location, in Altadena. One such Altadena artist […]
