Local chefs get statewide displaySeptember 5, 2006Alessandra Djurklou, Food EditorWhen chefs get together, delicious things can happen.

Okay, so maybe that's a little extreme but I just found out that John, the South Pasadena market manager is not going to let us back in the market! Bastard! We had to take the quarter off because of my traveling and what-not...some of the merchants there were not happy when I told them and are going to say something to him....how could you not want the best coffee and most luxurious tea there at the market? Obviously, he doesn't care about the success of the market or the market patrons!

This salad is made with one of my favorite grains, quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wa), known as a super-grain because it contains all eight essential amino acids, more protein than any other grain. Quinoa is also higher in unsaturated fats and lower in carbohydrates than most grains.

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons minced red onion

I didn't mean to leave kitty out of the picture, but you've gotta know that cooking for cats is a lot harder than cooking for dogs. For one, they are more selective, to say it nicely, and secondly their dietary needs are very different. It's higher protein diet with different levels of vitamins and minerals - it really is a more delicate balance. It's a lot more common to find people who cook for their dogs than people who cook for their cats. With that said I have had this book recommended to m...Read More

Today's recommended restaurant is one of my many favorites in Pasadena: Fortune Chinese Cuisine located on 60 N. Raymond between Union and Holly Streets 626-577-1888 Great Chinese food that's delicious and not greasy! Great service and they even have some light menu items...check it out! I love their Egg Drop Soup as well as their Won Ton Soup (I'm a sucker for either one). And as far as their entrees goes, it really is a toss up. I haven't had anything that I don't like. Be adventurous and try ...Read More

Pomegranates, pomegranates, pomegranates! ....Pomegranate Oolong....I've gotten a few emails asking about pomegranates and its popularity...did you know that this fruit is high in flavonoids and antioxidants? (So are red wine and cocoa by the way.) Even pomegranate juice may also help prevent heart disease.

Today's word is....
Saute [saw-TAY] Fr. literally means to jump! But in food terms it means to cook food quickly in a small amount of oil or other fat in a skillet or saute pan over high heat.

I've gotten some emails about my recent post about quinoa. People are asking where to buy, etc. You can find quinoa at Trader Joe's; I've also seen it at Wild Oats and Whole Foods. It's in the pasta/grain section. I don't know if the other stores have it, I've never looked. But I'm sure if you find it at your local Ralph's or Vons you'll let me know! Email me once you've tried the recipe, I want to know what you thought of it.
