I know it’s a trendy, already been done thing. However, I am noticing grapes, usually $3.99+ per pound at grocers, go for only 1-2 per pound within farmer’s markets. Just saying it’s delicious. Yes, you may also stick some in some wine to be all fancy!

When the munchies strike: Dinosaur Egg Pluots

Pluots are a hybrid of plum and apricot… this hybrid provides many varieties of nom goodness. Given its dappled coloring this varietal is trademarked as the ‘Dinosaur Egg’.  Naturely very sweet, pluots have a great deal of nutritious value and are low in fat, making them ideal for snacking or sweetening up other dishes. MMM!

Multiple MOUTHGASMS: Goldie’s on 3rd

I’ve been kind of bored with Los Angeles’ culinary scene lately. Only so many new “unique” taco places you can get excited about. My mouth hasn’t been blown in a while. Last night… CONTINUOUS MOUTHGASMING! Descriptions on each, but I could not even properly describe how I felt the entire meal. The closest I could get is… Remember that sensation you felt as a child running down the stairs Christmas morning ready to rip open your gifts…. IN MY MOUTH! Not to mention the very attractive bartenders and Executive Chef : Drew Andrade. formerly Executive Sous Chef at Spago Beverly Hills, added to the definition of New American Cuisine. After showering us with a delicious array of small plates, cocktails and an amazing dessert, I could not have left happier.

Savory got a little sweet: Reconstructed Pico de Gallo

Image

Today, while strolling the West Hollywood Farmer’s Market, I found this vegetable called an Opo Squash. It look like a vegetable gremlin, but it’s watery and slightly refreshing like cucumber with the softness of it’s quash roots. I have found three things to do with it… this is the first! 🙂

Recipe

1/4 thinly sliced Opo Squash
one tomato (1/4″ slices)
thinly sliced red onion
grape seed oil
Salt and Pepper
Lime Juice

Simply, build items and season. Set oven to 300F, and bake for 10-15 min. The tomato should be slightly softened. Squirt a little lime juice and MMMHMMM!
