Los Angeles Thai Food Festival: Like Whoa

Los Angeles Thai Food Festival: Like Whoa

Most Angelenos are fortunate enough to have a wide variety of authentic world cuisine no more than 30 minute radius from their home. A diverse food-scape is what makes this city so exciting to explore – both as a tourist and a dweller of 10+ years. Where I’ve done my fair share of Korean & Vietnamese...
Angeleno Magazine Live & Dine LA

Angeleno Magazine Live & Dine LA

Summer and food festivals go hand in hand here in Los Angeles. In fact, it seems there’s hardly a weekend to be had between May and September without the opportunity to oogle over chef demos or practice the art of stacking as many tiny paper plates in one hand as possible. I embrace this culinary...

Jones Coffee Roasters Pasadena: Educational & Highly Caffeinated Workshops

When Eventbrite asked me to pick out my second #SummerEventure, I knew I wanted to simmer things down a notch and go on journey of tamer varieties… I mean, did you see what I did to myself on the  first outing?! Loco on the real. For this round I wanted to educate myself in an...
The SoCal Tomato Battle

The SoCal Tomato Battle

  2013 is the summer of adventure…errr, I mean “Event-ure”. When July knocked on my calender’s door I realized {frantically} that we were already knee deep into summer. I immediately promised myself to start taking off on some mandatory creative and exciting quests weekly. Be it big bon voyage types, a small seasonal soirée or just...

Redefining Community: Alt Design Summit 2012

I know, I know. I don’t typically veer away from Foodworld around these parts, but seeing how absolutely intense and exciting the last few days have been…well, a mini detour was in order (as was a long…looooong nap). This past week, creative lovelies from all over the country descended upon Salt Lake City for  Alt...
LA I LOVE YOU: Taste of The Eastside

LA I LOVE YOU: Taste of The Eastside

Dearest Los Angeles, Listen up! Let’s not be shy, I no longer want to keep my feelings in the dark. I’m ready to come out and share how I really feel…I love you!! No really, it’s true. You are beautiful and delicious. You are much more intelligent than your rumored skanky reputation which has been...
Putting The Hero In Hero: Paul Reiser Gets His Own Sandwich

Putting The Hero In Hero: Paul Reiser Gets His Own Sandwich

There are few people who will achieve the highest known accomplishments in their lifetime. A handful will walk on the moon. Some faces will appear on currency. Others… will have a sandwich named after them. In my opinion, being dubbed any sort of food item sounds like the ultimate victory. It seems this sentiment is...
Spaces and Places: Intelligentsia

Spaces and Places: Intelligentsia

What started as a coffee phenomenon here on Los Angeles’ east side, recently turned into something much more aromatic. With coffee-only locations already in Silver Lake and Venice (as well as the original 3 locations in Chicago), Intelligentsia has opened a Pasadena Cafe featuring a daily eats menu curated by Heirloom LA and a hand...
Food Crush: Test Kitchen LA

Food Crush: Test Kitchen LA

Have you ever wished there was a restaurant with guest chefs on permanent rotation? I did. Years ago I bounced around the idea of a kitchen lab with friends where chefs from around the world would spend an evening or two showcasing their specialties. They said it would never work.  No one buys “tickets” to...
