Guests dined on a mixture of rectangular rustic tables with long white runners, and round tables cloaked in soft white linens. The stunning centerpieces crafted by Cleme...Read more

Have you noticed that kale is not the “it” thing anymore? Honestly everywhere I look, I feel like the culinary world has caught up with me: it is all about CAULIFLOWER!! And I love it! Cauliflower is an ingredient that is a versatile blank canvas so the only way to go is up and build it however you would like to.

This stunning Carondelet House wedding was one for the book!
Full of beautiful shades of pink and cream, this romantic event designed by Enchanted Garden Floral Design featured gorgeous vintage details with a modern flair!

The bright, clean flavor of citrus can greatly enhance the taste of many foods. With just a delicate squeeze of juice or a generous pinch of zest, a wide variety of dishes can be elevated from just the ordinary to quite the extraordinary.
Several options to add citrus as a finishing touch include juice, zest, sauce, salt, sugar, oil and vinaigrette. While lemon and limes are excellent standards, other creative options include oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, and even kumquats. Most citrus fruits are juice laden and notable for their fragrance partly due to flavonoids contained in the rind. The juice contains a high amount of citric acid that gives them their characteristic sharp flavor.
Tres LA uses citrus as a finishing touch for a v...Read more

Growing up in LA, one of the predominant sounds that bring many childhood memories is the faint jingle of bells on the streets that you will encounter on a sunny day.
It’s the “Paletero”! The man who pushed an iced box on wheels with bells attached to the handle of the cart.
He would ring them and walk down your street. On a really warm day you would see a large mass of children and adults gathered around this magical man that brought frozen happiness on a stick.
Flavors’ ranging from Coconut, Pineapple, Strawberry, Lemon, Bubblegum, Banana, Peach, Watermelon and the list goes on and on. All Flavors were either Water or Milk based. My particular favorite was Creamy Coconut. I loved the bottom part of the pale...Read more

Growing up, my parents always took me to India during Christmas vacation since that was summertime in India. I wasn’t always a fan of celebrating Christmas outside Los Angeles and my friends, but looking back, one thing I will always remember fondly about those trips was a simple food: corn.
My mom and I would walk down to the beach and get fresh corn on the cob from the vendors in the afternoon, and there was something about that smoky sweetness of the kernels melting in my mouth that brought me such happiness.
Today, not only does corn on the cob always transport me back to the beaches in Mumbai, but also it has inspired me to make a version of it into a dessert. A dessert that is both refreshing and light, perfect for the summe...Read more

Need to quickly and easily add flavor, color and texture to a dish?
Salt has its own unique voice and its own special character that elevates the flavor of food. Finishing salts refer to the many different varieties of salt that tend to be sea salt based and whose crystals tend to be larger. Just a sprinkle at the end as a finishing touch can be a game changer, raising flavor, and providing a playful crackle. A proper salting results in being able to taste the ingredients better, not the salt. There are many varieties of colors and flavors that are dependent on the location, the minerals, and the gathering process involved. Some examples include:
Himalayan Pink, French Grey, Hawaiian Black & Red, Flake, Fleur de Sel and Smoked Sea Salt....Read more
