This week is one for the history books. It started out with the Fourth of July on Monday, and will wrap up with a royal visit to Sony on July 10 from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (perhaps better known to all those watching their April wedding as Will and Kate). The royals are visiting California during the peak of our strawberry season. I've seen Camarosa joining the Chandler, Seascape, [...]

Locally, the holiday weekend culminates with the annual Fourth of July fireworks celebration at Culver City High School.. This weekend, join the cooks, hosts and hostesses declaring their own [...]

Today is the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere: the summer solstice. The earth rotates on an axis, meaning that its poles move closer to the sun as summer approaches, and then gradually move away until we reach winter. Midsummer came to Culver City at 10:16 a.m. Pacific Time today. Just as in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, you don't have to look far to see signs [...]

Last week's column featured vinegrette salad dressings and an old-time favorite which is newly trendy again: Green Goddess Dressing. This week, Fresh From the Farm focuses on fruit. We'll still have fresh cherries for a couple more weeks, there's a rainbow assortment of tree-ripened stone fruit which dazzles the eyes and tantalizes the tastebuds, and our stalwart Tehachapi-area orchard [...]

Cherry season is in full swing, and the Culver City Farmers Markets are the go-to place for these early summer favorites. Walking along Main Street this afternoon, you'll find the best local cherries: plump, juicy, tree-ripened red Brooks, deep burgundy Bings, and golden blushed Royal Anns. Once you've tried cherries fresh from local Southern California orchards, you'll return to our weekly [...]

Apricots and cherries are in season, and the Culver City Farmers Market is the place to go for fresh, juicy, tree-ripened fruit. Don't wait too long. The California cherry season is only six weeks long, from mid-May through June – depending, of course, upon the weather. Fresh cherries from the Pacific Northwest are available a bit later in the season, but the end of the California apricot [...]

Sugar snap peas have become an ubiquitous – and delicious – addition to vegetable platters. Plumper than a snow pea, with a soft, edible shell unlike their cousin the English pea, it seems like they have been around forever. In truth, they are the most recent addition to this trio of springtime delights. And like many wonderful things, they were discovered by someone who was searching [...]

There's little chance that shoppers and tourists will confuse Culver City's farmers markets with England's Scarborough Fair of yore. Bok choi and tamales, gourmet coffee and chilled fruit juices, nopales and kim chi are all pretty good indicators that it's no longer the Middle Ages. With electricity and refrigeration our markets are definitely 21st century. On-line shopping is coming soon to [...]

May 5 is just around the corner. Cinco de Mayo in Spanish. If you've lived in California for any length of time, the phrase Cinco de Mayo conjures up festive red, green and white decorations; music ranging from Mariachis to Cafe Tecuba, banda to Luis Martin and Alejandra Guzman -- and beer. Wonderful guacamole and salsa made fresh from the avocados, tomatoes, onions, chiles and cilanto [...]
