Get this: The Churchill on West 3rd is offering a Wednesday Oyster Night every week from 6PM to 11PM. Each of the little buddies will go for $1 each and there will be three varieties. Starts March 12!
March 13 at SMMOA will be an interesting event at the intersection of food and art: you’ll be able to make art with food! They’ve teamed up with Good Eggs for the event and it sounds awesome.
The Institute Of Domestic Technology is having a citrus based Saving The Season class on March 23. It’s a pricey, day long class but you’ll learn the ins and outs of making your own citrus items. Go if you have a lemon or orange or similar tree…
It was a matter of time before the Brodeo Drive based Plan Check on Fairfax would team up with a streetwear brand: they’re doing a March 6 through March 13 food/fashion celebration with Stussy. You can get specialty food and things like a “Stussy pack”: hear more after the jump.
It’s basically a requirement for every Angeleno who can cook to be able to cook Mexican food. It doesn’t necessarily have to be the *best* Mexican food but you should be able to make guacamole or tacos or enchiladas, dishes emblematic of a big culinary culture in the city. This is to appeal to hungry locals but mostly visitors who find the abundance of Mexican food to be really, really special. Why not indulge them by making your best South of the border treats?
That’s what happened last night: Mexican was requested as the cuisine of choice for a dinner party and we had to rise to the occasion. Somehow, that is easier said than done for me and I’m not particularly good at making anything in that world outside of a (secret) family recipe for guacamole. So what happened? I took the arrow pointing at Mexico and pushed it upward, into trendier and slightly more comfortable territory: Tex-Mex. Inspired by Downtown’s Bar Amá and Chef Josef Centeno’s Super Bowl recipes for Bon Appétit, we made a Tex-Mex feast that was surprisingly easy to do and totally delicious. We had to share (despite our forgetting to take any photos of the process).
