Katie Robbins 1 comment

Last weekend marked the first annual Los Angeles Food & Wine (yes, that's the full name), an occasion where, according to the posters that popped up around town "Celebrity Meets Celebrity Chef." Many stars of the kitchen made an appearance at the Lexus Grand Tasting, a two-day affair at L.A. Live downtown, which paired 30 chefs each day with some 200 wineries. It was a race with the clock and the stomach to make it around the room, gobbling up as much pork jowl and Pinot before time was up or extreme satiety set in. Here are some of our favorite bites.

Dinner Tonight: Cornmeal-Crusted Pan-Fried Trout

Serious Eats Blake Royer Post a comment

I've been daydreaming lately about going on a fishing trip. Maybe that's why I was drawn immediately to this recipe, which I imagine is the perfect recipe for a cast iron skillet and the freshest river trout known to man. The idea here is to use a fine cornmeal that will adequately coat the fish and give it a golden crunch on the outside. More

Raw salmon. [Flickr: This Year's Love] Raw foods isn't just about crudités. Sushi and rare steaks are just the tip of the iceberg, and I have yet to meet a carpaccio, crudo, or tartare that didn't make my day. As... More

Cook the Book: 'New Classic Family Dinners'

Caroline Russock Closed

"This is a cookbook that makes you want to cook." Even the best restaurants can have a hard time filling their tables on Monday nights. Some places use this slow night as a welcome day of rest for their staff, but some see it as an opportunity to try something a little different.

The results were mutually beneficial. For one night a week, Peel was able to serve whatever his heart desired and in turn, his customers enjoyed an inspired three-course meal at an affordable...
