Roasted Watermelon & Burrata

Say you want to go home and eat, but you don’t want to go home.  You want to eat the kind of food you’d make yourself, if you had the day to buy it, think it over, cook it, invite some... read on

  • Kosher WHAT?

    By Rob Eshman

    Last week, we launched our newest blog at jewishjournal.com. It’s called “Kosher Bacon.”

    Just about everyone who hears the name is offended by it. They assume we’re being cheeky just for the sake of provocation. After all, would we call a funeral blog “Shivah Me Timbers”? Would we... read on

    Los Angeles finally has its first fast charger for electric vehicles.

    The 480-volt charger is located in the parking lot across from the Toy Factory Lofts downtown, along with a bank of ten 220-volt chargers.

    Last month I visited the Beverly Hills Farmers Market for the first time. This Sunday, I’m a judge in their annual “Piesta”—a pie making contest combined with a pie -eating contest and other festivities.

    I was at a banquet for the USC Shoah Visual History Foundation a few weeks ago.  Phil Rosenthal, the creator of Everybody Loves Raymond, was the MC.  He killed—mostly by contrasting the sumptuous surroundings—the Four Seasons—and the lavish food, with the fact that we were all... read on
