To Live and Dine in L.A.

One of the things I did on my summer vacation was visit Los Angeles, and I was delighted to be able to see the exhibit that accompanies this book (though sad to just miss the re-opening of Clifton’s Cafeteria!).

And as East Coasters, CHoW was glad to gain some insight into west Coast foodways. This book, by the way, is so great for so many reasons. It not only includes lots of nostalgia-inducing pictures of restaurants and menus, its essays get into design, politics, and community–the reach that makes culinary history so rich.

And check out CHoW‘s new season of speakers. Our meetings are free, and you our monthly newsletter comes with your annual dues.
