    Tonight on my way home from a lecture I ate in a popular Japanese restaurant in West L.A. The chef/owner joined me, and we fell into talking about the state of fish.  This is a man with 30 years experience in the Japanese restaurant business in Los Angeles—sushi, bento, ramen,... read on

  • Santa Monica Farmers Temple… I mean Market

    So I walked through the Santa Monica Farmers Market this morning before it opened.  Officially they can’t sell before the opening blast, but they will, they do.  I just bought some ramps and some tangerines for the office, but really, I went because it is a breathtaking place to be... read on

  • In Tel Aviv, Life Is (Unrelentingly) With People

    In this morning’s Sacramento Bee, reporter Carla Myer wrote about bringing local, sustainable food to the Passover seder.  She interviewed me for the story, and was kind enough to include a couple of quotes.

    Eco-awareness aptly joins the other layers of meaning for the Seder meal,... read on

  • Howard Stern v. Jamie Foxx

    March 28, 2010 | 2:13 pm

    One thing Howard Stern understands about radio is that it is a macho medium. It’s a man’s world.  My friend Teresa Strasser, who used to co-host the Adam Carolla Show on 97.1, pointed out to me that a woman DJ doesn’t stand a chance in drive time.  It’s cultural, but it’s also... read on
