Quenelle Ice Cream & pastry is now open in Burbank

Being a foodie in Burbank is like being a race car driver who's car is on E. Things are starting to change though; first was the opening this summer of Cafecito Organico(locals still don't know what to do with this non Starbucks coffee shop) and now we have former Lukshon pastry chef John Park opening Quenelle. The ice cream flavors are amazing and the pastries are all top notch.

LA Weekly Pancake Breakfast Part 3!!! Yeah it was that great

I've always been a big proponent of the LA Weekly; I believe Jonathan Gold's tenure at the paper made me a better foodie with the knowledge he passed on. Even though Mr. Gold is gone I still love supporting the food events they have and am always surprised about how well they turn out. The Pancake breakfast this year was no exception. The highlights for me were the savory pancakes at Gottsui, blueberry pancakes at BLD, the cronut at semi sweet bakery and prime rib quesadilla Chego's own Roy Choi was serving up. On the coffee front Kris Fulton from LAMILL was pouring amazing single origins thru the Hario V60. The crew from Handsome Coffee was there also with espresso, americanos and ice coffee, hope you didn't ask for sugar when you stopped thru. Pastries were plentiful with Village Bakery and Monica from Nickle Diner. Met so many great people at this event, can't wait for the next one.

Wicked Clam Pop Up 2

Amazing sea food was served today in front of the Colorado Wine Company. 2 hours into the event all the Lobsta rolls were gone. The fish & chips and chowder both had a great flavor with out being too fishy. What a culinary success for Dave Evan's and his crew! Hopefully Dave will make this pop up a regular event. If you see him say, "hey I want the Wicked Clam every Sunday, well at least until it starts raining on a regular basis".

More from Alaska

My friend Seth and I BBQ'd these pork ribs before finishing them in the oven. In Alaska everything goes with Crown Royal, it's the state drink. The ribs were a little charred but they still tasted amazing!

Back form Alaska

I just got back from an amazing trip to Alaska so I apologize about the lack of content over the last couple of weeks. I had some amazing food in Alaska and will post pictures and stories soon. I also brought back about 10 pounds of smoked salmon. This is a meal I had last night. The salmon was canned by my good buddy John last summer. It's Copper River Reds(the Sockeye salmon has the highest Omega 3 fat content of any fish) packed with spices and a sliced jalepeno on the bottom. It was amazing!
