“The Los Angeles portrayed in cookbooks is swollen with creative vitality.”
India Mandelkern, Culinary Historian.
Elisa and Bill agree, but look beyond the widely-touted food trends of the moment to celebrate the authentic traditions that are the legacy of a multitude of food cultures. Both firmly believe that Los Angeles has always been a food city and that our city is just now waking up to its culinary brilliance. Come join the conversation.
