Cos & Pi

Cos & Pi

Almost too beautiful to eat. That was my initial reaction when the young woman set down the plate, delivering our order of Cos & Pi’s salmon toast. Of course, you’ll have noticed the leading word is “almost,” because, of course, for food enthusiasts, nothing is too beautiful to leave untasted. Toasted dark rye is loaded with a layer of avocado, pickled […]

L.A. Mexicano

L.A. Mexicano

Pocho cooking is the original L.A. Mexicano, the food that many second- and third-generation Mexican Americans grew up eating, and the dishes that everyone in L.A. considered truly Mexican until we started knowing better in the 1990s: the enchiladas and tostadas that L.A.-born college kids craved when away at college, the trays of taquitos served […]

Teas of the World: Pu-erh

Teas of the World: Pu-erh

Japanese green tea or Chinese? What’s Keemun versus Assam? Though Linda Louie earned her Master of Social Work and worked for the Los Angeles Superior Court, she was born and raised in Hong Kong and a life-long passion was calling. Linda is now owner of the Bana Tea Company, an online business specializing in Pu-erh […]

Afternoon Tea Among the Roses

Afternoon Tea Among the Roses

It had been a long day, so we are cheered when a friend suggests we meet and take a walk in the Huntington Gardens. Even better as it turns out (since our long day has not been accompanied by sustenance) that upon meeting our friend she expresses an insistent hunger and wonders, would we care […]

Masters of Taste 2017

Masters of Taste 2017

Thank goodness, Rob and Leslie Levy, owners of The Raymond restaurant, thought, let’s do something different for a fundraiser. Not the same old gala cocktail hour or buffet as a fundraiser, but something different. Perhaps they should’ve said, “go big or go home” because “Masters of Taste” is a fun idea with an ambitious concept, located in […]

Red Vines Concoctions @ Twohey’s

Some things you just can’t make up: Red Vines brand ambassadors are climbing into a VW retro-style bus “to promote the California Collection on its Red Vines Made in America Tour.” Okay, then! And to coincide with the arrival of said ambassadors into Southern California, Twohey’s iconic restaurant in Alhambra (established 1943) has created two […]
