All the butter: how chefs are transforming the world’s greatest spread

Once neglected in favour of supposedly healthier products or mass-produced substitutes, butter is back, and better than ever, thanks to chefs who are adding bone marrow, chocolate and churning their ownIt sounded like another fad – like the cereal cafe in east London, or the crisp bar in Soho. “This Colorado bistro is the world’s first butter bar,” ran the headline of an article announcing the opening of Bella La Crema, a US restaurant serving “flights” of handmade butters flavoured with spices ...

Morrison, a classic sports bar, scores big in Burbank and Atwater Village

I grew up in the shadow of Yankee Stadium. Which meant there was no way for me to not have a love of sports hardwired into my internal circuitry. With Yankee Stadium across the street, you spend an inordinate amount of time in the bleacher seats in “The House That Ruth Built.” (I even went there on school field trips. The justification? Baseball is all about the math. I learned to calculate batting averages long before I studied long division) Which is why I’m drawn, like a fan to a Yankee Frank...

Could bacon become harder to find in California?

By Scott McFetridge | Associated Press DES MOINES, Iowa — Thanks to a reworked menu and long hours, Jeannie Kim managed to keep her San Francisco restaurant alive during the pandemic. That makes it all the more frustrating that she fears her breakfast-focused diner could be ruined within months by new rules that could make one of her top menu items — bacon — hard to get in California. Bacon and eggs are among the most popular menu item at SAMS American Eatery in San Francisco, Kim says. “Our...

5 best places for guacamole in the San Fernando Valley

The Guinness World Record for the largest serving of guacamole was set in Tancitaro, Mexico, on April 6, 2018, when 350 locals gathered together at the town’s annual Avocado Festival to prepare 8,351 pounds of guac. Sadly, Guinness does not tell us how many avocados that represents, nor how many tons of chips were required to devour it all. But, we can assume, a lot. The Shindler World Record for the most avocado dishes served at a party was set about 20 years ago, when a friend puzzled over wha...

How British baking champ Nadiya Hussain builds bridges, one cake at a time

Her father was a chef and owned an Indian restaurant, but growing up in England, Nadiya Hussain’s mum never baked and only used her oven for storage. So the bright young girl had to learn the basics of cooking at school. She was immediately drawn to the kitchen and Baking Studies became her favorite subject. Fast forward to 2015: As an amateur cook she won the “Great British Bake Off” show competition and since then her career has taken off: She’s risen higher than an angel food cake in a warm o...

"This was the beginning of the reopening, and we had a line of takeout orders. Her husband stood at the doorway and was like, ‘She's hungry! She needs her food right now!’"

"People who were already nice prior to the pandemic are super nice, and people who were a little bit difficult to deal with pre-pandemic are now completely just unbearable to even serve." Said the owner of Vanessa’s Bistro in Berkeley, quoted in "SF Bay Area restaurants are still struggling.

For spicy chicken, Tribos Peri Peri turns up the heat in Artesia

“Peri Peri” is a pepper cultivated by Portuguese colonialists in Mozambique — a pretty name that probably comes from the Swahili pilipili, which translates simply as “pepper.” These days, if you eat your way through Southeast Asia, Africa or even the ethnic enclaves of London, it’s hard to miss the ubiquity of peri peri. What jalapeños are to Latino cooking, peri peri is to the rest of the world. And for good reason. It’s an especially tasty pepper, seeming to increase the flavor of foods it’s u...
