Attendees will learn how to make authentic Neapolitan-style pizzas with owner and proprietor Michael Gerard, who will share his dough recipe, give tips on cooking [...]

Old Pas Restaurant Week 2011-Extended!

Old Pas Restaurant Week 2011-Extended!

Foodies all over Old Pasadena can rejoice, Restaurant Week has been extended for another week. Due to the great success of the first week (it helped to raise funds for many of Union Station Homeless Services‘ clients) they have decided to extend the event for an extra 7 days. Here’s what we wrote last week: It’s that [...]

Old Town Cooking School

Old Town Cooking School

Pasadena can now boast a cooking school for the rest of us, one that doesn’t require a second mortgage to finance. Owner Deb Swartz has been cooking and studying food for nearly thirty years, having started at the ripe old age of eight. Five years ago, giving in to the clamoring for classes, she launched Old [...]

Oceanview Bistro

Oceanview Bistro

Ugh, the dreaded office lunch out. (OK, I know, offices are lucky to be able to afford lunch out these days, and if you have a job at all, you’re happy. But work with me here.) The boss dreads it because of the expense, the hassle and the excruciating need to make small talk. The [...]

Dog Haus: A Review? Or: Lunch with Abe Froman

Dog Haus: A Review? Or: Lunch with Abe Froman

Los Angeles is no stranger to fine purveyors of encased meats. There’s Pink’s, of course, and Dodger Dogs, and Vicious Dogs, and The Stand and Wurstküche* and several others discussed at length on Off-Ramp with John Rabe, Kevin Ferguson, and the esteemed Colleen Dunn Bates. Right here in Pasadena there’s Slaw Dogs, and Big City [...]

Luggage Room

Luggage Room

We’ve been to Phoenix a couple of times and don’t particularly care to return, so we were skeptical when we heard people raving about the pizza at the original La Grande Orange, and how great it would be when Pasadena finally got said pizza. Really? The nouveau-riche land of strip malls has authentic, wood-fired, thin-crust [...]

Market on Holly En Route

Market on Holly En Route

After more than a year of planning and many months of build-out, the Market on Holly, a joint venture by Pasadena television composer Marty Davich and Pasadena caterer Mary Pat Brandmeyer (whose clients include many well-known celebs) is scheduled to open on May 6th, with some of the proceeds during the month going to the [...]

Gaon Authentic Korean BBQ Restaurant

Gaon Authentic Korean BBQ Restaurant

I’m no authority on Korean food, but usually the words “Korean BBQ” entail a table-top grill on which customers cook their own meats—an ingenious form of culinary outsourcing. Gaon has no such grills, though one dish was served on a sizzling hot plate set over a dish of flammable pink jelly. But no temperature dials, [...]

KindKreme

KindKreme

KindKreme is not something you slather on your dinosaur-skin elbows or use to whiten your teeth. Neither is it a concoction from Harry Potter that turns bullies into sweethearts. Rather, it’s a vegan, organic, sustainable café that has a rocking ice cream counter, a smoothie/juice bar, coffee and some damn decent lunch choices. If you’re [...]

Food Truck Tuesdays at Figueroa Produce

Food Truck Tuesdays at Figueroa Produce

It’s a tired trope in food writing: the reluctance of the writer to describe publicly an unsullied treasure, when a great deal of what’s worth treasuring is the absence of other people. People ruin everything, you know. Somewhere, a dissertation is being written this very minute about the self-loathing incurred by discharging one’s duty, common [...]
