  • Exploring a World of Jewish Food

    Did King Solomon really exist? Some say no. But Joan Nathan is sure he existed, which is a good thing. Without this extravagant monarch, known for his 700 wives and 300 concubines, his wisdom (you would have to be wise to manage such a household) and his love of good food, her latest cookbook might […]...

  • How to Make Strawberry-Loquat Jam

    When life hands you a loaded loquat tree–make jam. This is what I do each spring, when the tree is filled with glorious bunches of orange fruit. There’s more than I can use, so I share with squirrels and friends. A man used to sneak onto my lawn with a ladder and help himself to […]...

  • Coffee? Yes, As Long As It’s Menengic

    “This coffee is fantastic,” I told the shopkeeper who bought it for me. “What is it?” “Menengic,” he said. I did not know what that meant, because this was my first trip to Turkey, and everything was new and unfamiliar....

  • Blending Your Way to Healthy Food

    Just listening to Tess Masters makes me feel healthy. Eating what she cooks makes me feel even healthier. Tess’s latest book, “The Perfect Blend” (Ten Speed Press), is all about gluten-free and vegan food and is packed with nutritional advice....

  • An Italian Lunch with Wines of Soave

    It was a glorious golden afternoon in Los Angeles. Sea breezes fluttered through the window. There was good food on the table. And cool wine to drink, fresh, aromatic, and perfect for a warm day. The place was Obicà Mozzarella Bar Pizza e Cucina on Sunset Boulevard, where a small group had gathered to taste […]...

  • Italian Wines and Pizzas at Mozza

    Six wines and four pizzas–it was a fun lunch at Pizzeria Mozza, but informative too. Three visiting Italian winemakers provided the wines, and Mozza produced the pizzas along with appetizers, a salad and an outrageously rich dessert....

  • A Dinner with Silverado Cabernets

    “We’re setting up for some red wine,” the server said, covering the table with glasses. This wasn’t just “some red wine.” It was super premium red wine, Cabernet Sauvignon from Silverado Vineyards in Napa Valley. There were three, the 2013 Solo, the 2003 library vintage of the same wine, both ...

  • Potatoes with Chocolate? Why Not?

    Need a sensational dessert? One that requires only three ingredients and will have your friends begging for more? And for the recipe? If you have potatoes, chocolate chips and sea salt, you can make it. It’s Thick-Cut Potato Crisps with Dark Chocolate (above). They’re in Raghavan Iyer’s latest cookbook, “...

  • ONE PAN, TWO PLATES–(Middle Eastern) FREEKEH

    How many cookbooks do you have that contain recipes for freekeh? Probably not many. More likely none. Freekeh is roasted green wheat, which you can find in markets that stock Middle Eastern products. I recently bought a box, needed a recipe and found a terrific one in Carla Snyder’s latest book, “One Pan, Two Plates:...

  • PAIRING LUNCH WITH NEW ZEALAND WINES

    Wine tastings  are great. They’re even better when wines are paired with food so well that each shows at its best. This happened when Erica Crawford of Loveblock Wines in New Zealand (at the top) presented her wines at a lunch at Wolf restaurant in Los Angeles. Marcel Vigneron, Wolf’s chef/owner, came up with the [&...
