Food and Hollywood Co-branding and Farmers Market Fashion

The latest Pass the Salt Podcast Episode is up!

This week we discuss food marketing (to kids) in terms of co-branding with blockbuster Hollywood hits and how we succumbed to the ads and farmers market fashions in LA. Silly and fun, but we do get into what to buy, when to go and what to avoid.

Listen on…

Episode 16 of Pass the Salt Podcast is UP!

Another BRAND NEW EPISODE of Pass the Salt Podcast is up!

This week: Downtown LA dive bar, Bar 107, has launched a Twitter revolution — ‪#‎occupybar107‬ — refusing to leave even though their landlord has asked them to. Why? They say it’s because the landlord wants to bring in a new tenant who will pay a higher rent. We talk about our favorite hole-in-the-walls who’ve fallen victim to gentrification and our own hipster-guilt (or lack thereof) about forcing small mum-and-pop restaurants out when we/”they” move in.

Plus — An exhibit of historic LA restaurant menus… What we learned from checking out the To Live and Dine in LA exhibit at the central Los Angeles Public Library this week!

And finally — our favorite segment, our Bite of the Week, featuring bites from Dallas, Hawaii and Bren’s oddball combination that makes all of our noses turn up!

Listen now!

Sunset Savor the Central Coast

Holy Latte!

I am so excited to share that I will be cooking, speaking and signing my cookbook, Great Food Starts Fresh, at Sunset Savor the Central Coast which is taking place September 27 – 30 in San Luis Obispo. I’ll be there both Saturday and Sunday on the “Farmers Market To Meal” stage.

It’s going to be a great event with talented chefs like Susan Feniger, Rick Moonen, Ted Allen and my dear friend, Aarti Sequeira.

There will be excellent food, wine and entertainment…  I guarantee it will be a delicious time, so come on out and enjoy the weekend!
