Cassia — the Spice Table Is All Grown Up (and has rich friends now)

12 Mar

It was sad day when Bryant Ng’s Spice Table closed.  It was my favorite lunch place in Little Tokyo (and DTLA), and Bryant and his staff were wonderful all around.  That’s why I was excited to hear that Bryant was teaming up like Voltron with Zoe Nathan and the Rustic Canyon/Huckleberry crew.  Apparently, a ton of money was involved, because the new venture, Cassia, is beautiful.

Last year, I went to the UCLA Science and Food pie event, at which Zoe Nathan gave away her recipe for blueberry cornmeal coffee cake. No surprise, it’s pretty great. You can get it at Huckleberry by the slice (with seasonal fruit), or make it yourself.

Sweet Rose Creamery has been scooping LA’s best ice cream since 2010. But to get Shiho Yoshikawa’s creations you had to schlep all the way to Brentwood (unless you’re a millionaire yoga mom, in which you sauntered over after mid-morning yoga). But just last week Shiho opened the new Sweet Rose at Lincoln and Pico! So now you can get her unbelievable Valrhona fudgsicles with slightly less traffic infuriating you! Hooray!

UCLA Food and Science Pie Lecture with Christina Tosi and Zoe Nathan

20 May

I paid $25 to taste 2 oz. of pie from UCLA undergrads.

The draw was that the UCLA Food and Science class invited Christina Tosi of Momofuku Milk Bar and Zoe Nathan of Huckleberry and Milo and Olive to judge the students’ pie experiments and lecture on pie. Yes, that’s right — I paid to hear two great bakers lecture on pie but not eat any of their pie.

Also, guest judging were two UCLA profs and two UCLA alums, Jonathan Gold and Evan Kleiman.
