Nothing Says the Holidays Like Tamales

Nothing Says the Holidays Like Tamales

Prepare for holiday tamales by enjoying Grassroots’ Tamale Lunch Fiesta, December 19th-20th. After savoring one or all five of Grassroots’  homemade tamales, make sure to put in a holiday order. Unsurprisingly, Grassroots’ tamales are made with certified GMO-free and organic U.S.A. corn. They’re also advertised as being antibiotic-free, hormone-free, lard-free, and gluten-free, which will satisfy […]

Charlie’s Coffee House

Charlie’s Coffee House

It’s right next to the railroad tracks but it’s quiet. Really quiet. If quiet for concentration or peace of mind are desired, Charlie’s Coffee House is the place. And, it is a coffee house. There’s not a lot of “other” to eat. The usual pastries fill the case and a breakfast burrito that we assume […]

Lincoln Pasadena

Lincoln Pasadena

Yes, I admit I’m one of the people who drove by Christine Moore’s new restaurant, Lincoln Pasadena, three times before I found it. My chef friend, Lisa, is joining me for breakfast and is looking for the location, too. The GPS on my phone indicates that Pasadena’s newest restaurant should be right here, at the very […]

Crepes de Paris

Crepes de Paris

Hometown Pasadena’s teenage consultant “DW” had a yen for crêpes this past weekend, so naturally she Googled, finding Crepes de Paris on Fair Oaks Avenue, just south of Green Street. We drive by it twice and almost settle for Amara,(which anyone knows is not settling), but we do succeed…by literally stumbling into it. Aside: We blame our inability to quickly […]

Harvest Festival and Pie Contest

Harvest Festival and Pie Contest

This event is November 9th, but we figure some folks will want to hone their pie-making skills in time for the upcoming Harvest Festival. All entrants will receive the Old Pasadena Farmers’ Market tote bag, while great-grandma’s family-honored and renowned bumbleberry pie recipe may prove to be just the ticket to garnering Grand Prize (and $50). […]

Ferment: Exploding the Boundaries

Ferment: Exploding the Boundaries

This is not a local event, and actually it’s a bit of a hike, but it includes Altadena’s own Joseph Shuldiner of the Institute of Domestic Technology and we think the idea sounds fascinating so carve out some time and gas up the car. Shuldiner has collaborated for the last six months with Cal State […]

Cook the Book

Cook the Book

Whole grains. Everyone is cashing in on the wealth of health in regard to whole grains. General Mills is pushing the whole grain factor of their Lucky Charms, Trix, Coco Puffs, and Reese’s Puffs cereals, and though we’re not doubting their claim, the benefits may—kinda, most probably, very likely—be outweighed by the inclusion of hefty doses […]
