The Smithsonian Institution declared Maloof “America’s most renowned contemporary furniture craftsman.” His rocking chair has been described as having “sinewy sculpted lines” and “a modern stylistic aesthetic of clean lines born of practical consideration.” Beauty comes not from added ornamentation. It comes from enhancement […]

Baking Bread 101

Baking Bread 101

She was an official expat for nearly a decade. Unsurprisingly, once Debra Cohen returned home, American bread just didn’t really do it for her. Debra began baking using techniques gleaned from French and German bakers (and the New York Times). Now, Debra runs a “home-based” bakery in Altadena and delivers fresh loaves to lucky recipients. […]

It’s a Bridge Party

It’s a Bridge Party

After a rack of Big Mama’s pork ribs or Gourmet Grill Masters‘ chicken seekh kabob, cool yourself down with a Bulgarini gelato or enhance your waist line with one of Pam’s Sweet Shack’s funnel cakes. Don’t sweat the infusion of calories—you’ll be working it off dancing—as there will be three stages with live music at Pasadena Heritage’s […]

Whisky & Poetry

We’ve written and raved about this event before, but we’re here to do it again because if even one cell of yours enjoys poetry and whisky, in any and all combinations, even the most fleeting interest, or even mere admiration, then you must attend Kim Ohanneson and Karolyn Kiisel’s increasingly popular Whisky & Poetry Salon. Thursday, […]

Le Salon – 2014-2015 Season

Le Salon – 2014-2015 Season

If we scooted up in our chair, we could’ve touched her arm. As it was, we could hear her breathing. As Ms. Searmi Park played her violin at the final concert of Le Salon de Musiques’ 2013-1014 season, immersion and emotion manifested through her body. She sat at the edge of her chair and as the music of Beethoven’s piano […]
