Lunch is Served – Capriotti’s is Open – CCFoodie

Lunch is Served – Capriotti’s is Open – CCFoodie

When they opened the doors to a new sandwich shop at the corner of Sepulveda and Berryman, they followed a classic rule; go where the customers are. If you live in Sunkist Park, and you are used to heading that direction for a sandwich you know that walking is a great idea, and riding a bike is even better. When we open anything in Culver City, parking is an issue, and Capriotti’s is already [...]

Sports Nutrition-  Rebekah Hennes, R.D.

“ I wasn’t feeling well in the first half. I felt down, man. I had three slices of pizza before the game and the food took me down.” Leroy Loggins, basketball player with the Brisbane Bullets, after the 1986 semi final. Even though eating according to body cues is the key to attaining a natural and healthy weight, there are times you may want to tell your cravings, “later.” Suppose [...]

The Negative Mind and Nutrition – Rebekah Hennes

The Negative Mind and Nutrition – Rebekah Hennes

“You are fat and will never run a mile!” “Why do you even try? You are a loser!” “You have got to get your eating under control! Why can’t you just stop eating sugar?” “How could you eat that donut?” “You blew it! Eat as much as you want today because tomorrow the diet begins, fatso!” If you have ever heard these comments directed at you, then you most likely heard them [...]

The Post-Holiday Diet Temptation – Rebekah Hennes

The Post-Holiday Diet Temptation – Rebekah Hennes

So the stocking wasn’t the only thing that got stuffed over the holidays. Besides food, you were bombarded with diet ads, exercise products, and New Year’s resolutions. You felt full and frustrated from eating so many treats and it seemed as though everywhere you turned, someone was trying to provide you with a solution to your discomfort. In reality, they were all selling you a “happier [...]

Il Moro: Serious Dining Near Culver City – Mary McGrath

Il Moro: Serious Dining Near Culver City – Mary McGrath

There are many divine restaurants in Culver City. On occasion, I come across a winner outside of our city limits. This one is just a few miles away and worth every penny. What can you say about a place that breaks all barriers when it comes to food? That it’s great? That won’t suffice. In this era, unless a restaurant wrestles with your sensibilities, turning your palate inside out, it’s [...]

The Buggy Whip Serves Lunch by Mary McGrath

The Buggy Whip Serves Lunch by Mary McGrath

Hooray! The Buggy Whip is again open for lunch! I’ve enjoyed this vintage place for dinner upon several occasions. Usually I go for their football-sized lobsters, steaks or the infamous Stone Crab Claws, a seasonal delicacy. But lunch too? Count me in. For those of you who have relegated this “old school” restaurant to special occasions, now you can enjoy their lunchtime menu, along [...]

Food Fetish – Holy Guacamole

Food Fetish – Holy Guacamole

Having an avocado tree is the gift that keeps on giving. I count myself among the lucky to have a tree so generous, so happy, and so fecund at this time of the year. It's a great moment for guacamole. At one point in my long and checkered college career, I was sharing a house with three guys, all of whom were studying music. As the only girl I had thought I might have more dominion over the [...]

Lovely Leeks Make Stews and Soups Taste Like Spring

Lovely Leeks Make Stews and Soups Taste Like Spring

This week's From the Farmer's Table celebrates the lowly leek, symbol of Wales, and mild member of the alliaceae family. The variable early March weather makes this the perfect time to prepare broth and hearty soups. A traditional Welsh leek cawl (pronounced “cowl”) provides a lighter alternative to the more familiar leek and potato soup. Heartier lamb and vegetable cawl provides a full, [...]
