    If you should find yourself at Manuela, the sprawling new small-plates restaurant at the heart of Hauser & Wirth, you should probably poke around the museum-size galleries, take a look at the chickens out back and order a “Redneck” platter as soon as you sit down. That platter is a statement of...

    The joy of meatloaf, that iconic comfort food

    Have you heard about the White House meatloaf? Apparently, it’s so good that President Trump has been known to order it for guests, including New Jersey Gov.

Green garlic started out as the leftover trimmings in newly planted...

    Jonathan Gold finds a spot that takes regional Mexican cooking on an adventure

    The morning after my last meal at Maestro, Danny Godinez’s new Mexican restaurant in Old Pasadena, I pulled the leftover barbacoa out of the refrigerator to see if I could salvage enough for a taco. There were still a few scraps of lamb left, but the container seemed half-filled with a mysterious...

    Culinary SOS: Cold mezze dips from Nîroj Kurdish Cuisine

    When you browse the menu at Nîroj Kurdish Cuisine in Agoura Hills, you’ll probably be tempted to order the cold mezze platter.

    Cherimoyas are in season. We have recipes

    What’s in season: At first glance, the mounds of cherimoyas at the market might look like prehistoric eggs or hand grenades; the oddly shaped fruit is covered with a leathery green skin marked with large indentations.

    Why all the fuss over bone broth? It's just a fancy name for stock

    Ever heard of bone broth? At least as a term, bone broth is relatively new, popularized — even hipsterized — by the rise of the Paleo diet, which focuses on the consumption of meat, fish, vegetables and fruit, or the kinds of foods that may have formed our diet during the Paleolithic era. The broth,...

    At Kismet, your culinary destiny may come in the form of rabbit kebabs

    I once spent a week tailing the band Hanson, three teenage boys who had grown up on an island where the only pop available to them was from Time Life rock ’n’ roll anthologies, 1957-69. And the music they made reflected it — their songs were the products of people who had thought deeply about Bobby...

    Carrots are in season. We have recipes

    What’s in season: Though you can buy orange carrots at the supermarket any time of the year, winter is the best season to find the root vegetables because the cold weather makes for crisper, sweeter roots. Winter is also when you’ll find a rainbow of colors and varieties, from deep Purple Haze and...

    Jonathan Gold reviews Kobee Factory & Syrian Kitchen in Van Nuys

    Is it possible to become obsessed with a dish as simple as mjadara? Because mjadara, an Arab dish of bulgur wheat cooked with lentils, isn’t much to look at: a murky, slightly ominous mush, its color lingering in that zone between tan and battleship gray, with a texture usually stiff enough to...
