2nd Annual Taste of the Pier

Redondo Beach,CA.- All summer, Southern California residents and visitors had a variety of events related to food to attend. The food tasting events continues into the Fall season. The Redondo Pier Association presented the 2nd Annual Taste of the Pier on Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9, 2011 from 12:00-4:00PM.

My taste buds and I went to the food tasting on Saturday, October 8th. We were rewarded with cool oceans breezes, soothing sounds of ocean waves, delicious seafood and three local bands providing entertainment for the crowd on the... Read More

Lemongrass Bistro is the perfect lunch spot for a party of diners who would otherwise struggle awkwardly to make small talk, but are saved by food so good no one feels the need to say much of anything. This was exactly the situation I found myself in last week.I just adore my workmate C, and don't know what I would do without her. However, her son isn't as easy to talk to as she is. So when C told me her son was joining us for lunch, I smiled politely and started going over all of the stand by conversation starters in my head. Well God bless us, we sat there in the car trying to get the dialog... Read More
Everyday is Halloween at Digger's Diner; the bay area's only, and the world's second, graveyard themed restaurant. Whether you are looking to dig yourself an early grave of heart attack laden, gravy smothered pork chops or if your just looking for a fun place to get a shake before going trick or treating, I recommend you check out Digger's at least once for the novelty of it. (Extra kudos if you are turned on by Hell's Angels, gangbangers, Goths or anyone on parole.) food is standard, fifties diner fare done authentically and without apology. You will not find any vegan,... Read More
My granny was from the south, and she taught me some valuable things about life, food and art. One: getting blue from time to time is a natural fact. When you're feeling down, sing it out. Two: Whenever you're feeling a mess, you should cook up a mess of food and share it with a mess of people. Three: sex is good, but not as good as Red Velvet Cake!I think I love Old South Barbeque because it is exactly the kinda place my old granny woulda loved if she were alive and well today. I came on a Friday night with my best friend and my lover. I was feeling grouchy after a hard week at work and a few... Read More

Turtle on the Rocks Last night at Dinner the menu was being perused with great attention. They had seen me look at the turtles in the Tank.

As I walked in I had commented on a tank full of turtles. Someone asked me if they were tortoises or turtles, and I said, "turtles" Then it was pointed out that turtles were from the sea and salt water and tortoises live in fresh water. Good to know, but whatever they are, I am very happy to keep one as a pet, but not happy to eat one for dinner. I have a few turtle stories.

I first tasted turtle, or tortoise, in Wuhan in China. I was... Read More

It always amuses me a bit to hear about cooks in other parts of the world scrambling about to assemble a very long list of ingredients to make some restaurant's version of Jambalaya. While it is true that the best jambalayas contain lots of different kinds of seafood and meat, no sane Louisianian would Ever go out to buy, say 12 shrimp, a third of a pound smoked sausage, a third of pound chicken, a third of a pound duck, 6 oysters, etc. In Louisiana, jambalaya is something you make when you have a fridge full of left-overs that you need to clean out. Jambalya is truly an infinitely... Read More

Why do they call it comfort food? Might it be because we need it? Could it be that with our stressful lives this remedy is what will make things seem better? Could the culinary world be a better place for allowing comfort food to hold it's ... well comforting allure? Is comfort food the big cozy blanket of love and reassurance we are lacking in our lives?

Pancakes, bacon, fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, gravy and biscuits, chocolate milk, brownies, macaroni and cheese, freshly baked bread with butter or jams and pudding. These are still major players in the culinary world,... Read More
