Taste of Art: Street Foods & Farmers’ Markets

Taste of Art: Street Foods & Farmers’ Markets
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

Al pastor sopes with refried beans, cabbage, and cotija cheese on a freshly hot, crunchy cornmeal shell—right off the cart. Carrots, radishes, and beets popping with color and long, leafy, feathered “tails. Balsamic vinegar so thick it hardly drips and tastes more appropriate for a bowl of artisanal vanilla bean ice cream than to toss […]

AltaEats’ Farm-to-Table Supper

AltaEats’ Farm-to-Table Supper

AltaEats, the “up, up the hill” little neighborhood restaurant located in Pasadena—but feels like it’s in Altadena—is the creation of Paul Ragan and Angela Visca. AltaEats has been praised as being ambitious, intriguing, and fun by Gayot and Jessica Ritz of LA Weekly writes, “What isn’t really up for debate is this team’s dedication to […]

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 […]

Home Beer Brew

Home Beer Brew

“From ancient Mesopotamia to the modern day, beer has played an important role as the very foundation of civilization.”¹ As the very foundation of civilization. That’s an extraordinary statement. Who knew that the Craftsman rye pale ale we enjoyed yesterday evening had such a crucial lineage? Professor Linda Raley of Texas Tech University writes that […]

Marco Paolo Spiced Pumpkin with Burnt Caramel

Marco Paolo Spiced Pumpkin with Burnt Caramel

  “Spiced pumpkin with burnt caramel.” For us, those words create visions of fall and plant ghost-flavors on the tongue. Spiced pumpkin with burnt caramel is the new fall flavor, along with passionfruit and ginger, from Marco Paolo Chocolates and may be sampled at the Artisanal L. A. fall show at The Reef in downtown […]

Dumpling & Beer Fest

Dumpling & Beer Fest

It’s Octoberfest, Asian-style. Celebrate the year with beer! Or, a variety of beers… and dumplings… at San Gabriel’s Dumpling & Beer Fest on October 1, at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. Not only dumplings are on the menu, but egg rolls, spring rolls, pork belly katsu, and Korean chicken wings (to name a few). For […]

9th Annual Chocolate Salon

9th Annual Chocolate Salon

We believe Pasadena “does” chocolate pretty dang well. Mignon, Amara, Contessa, and Marco Paolo  (MP’s hand-painted chocolates pictured right). Now, take these four quality chocolate makers and square them to the nth degree, and welcome to The 9th Annual Los Angeles Chocolate Salon. This is not just a show, a taste-testing, or an exhibit. A […]

Sniff, Sip & Swish at Everson Royce

Sniff, Sip & Swish at Everson Royce

Imagine that with every second sip, you’re making a donation. This is because over 50% of the event ticket price to the 2nd Annual Wine Tasting at Everson Royce will benefit Five Acres, which for 127 years has been working so children may have safe, loving, and permanent homes. April, Clement, and Capella of Everson […]

D2 for Happy Hour

D2 for Happy Hour

Rather than meet for our monthly late morning coffee, our small band of (mostly) women decide to do an early evening, gathering for Happy Hour at DusitD2 Constance Hotel Pasadena. Though the name is laborious and clunky, this historic site, formerly known as the Constance Hotel and built in 1926 by Perry Constance, has been […]

Colonial Kitchen

Colonial Kitchen

It’s a building we’ve driven by more times than we can count and it registers fleetingly because of the name Colonial Kitchen rising up above the roofline and the Union Jack that flies out front, alongside the Stars and Stripes (well, to be accurate, they each take a corner). It’s an establishment that’s never pulled […]
