Do You Need a Pricey Culinary Degree to Be a Top Chef?

Step one. Get full sleeve tattoos. Every single bleepin' cook/chef/whatever in this city sports them. It's a uniform. It's a cliche.

One hones one's intuition after much experience though. In any discipline.

Doesn't the cream curdle when you whisk it with lemon juice?

Easy Slow Cooker Peach Crumble

I agree, the pic doesn't look very appetizing, looks half-cooked.

Where to live in Oakland for food?

We liked being close to Lakeshore (Arizmendi, TJ's) and Grand Avenue. We lived on Ivy Hill, which is just a (hilly) walk to get there and it was a super location. Ivy Drive at Park Blvd. Very affordable.

Home food delivery a la Munchery/Spoon Rocket?

I'm writing from the SF Bay Area where it seems we have a zillion startups who are NOT restaurant delivery but instead deliver chef-made meals. Companies like Munchery or Sprig ... Evolution Meals ... Spoon Rocket ...
Is there anything like that in LA? Specifically near Wilshire/Fairfax.
Thanks!

Best quick meal you make with trader joes products

Pizza Bianca -- with their pizza dough, creme fraiche instead of tomato sauce, topped with mozzarella, blue cheese, sage and walnuts (toast them first). DELISH

Grocery Outlet (May, 2014)

I was looking for Amy's healthy frozen dinners at Richmond recently and didn't see any. There's another brand of healthy-ish frozen dinners but I was afraid to try them, since most of the healthy ones suck.

Town and Country Village - Palo Alto

I have only been to the Indian place that's modeled after Chipotle. Not bad.

Decline in the food truck craze?

I regularly attend the El Cerrito OTG and it's just as robust as ever. The prices and lines are indeed a drag though!

I think Tay Ho in Oakland Chinatown has something similar. It's good. See the pic on the menu? The white things?

TV (Baseball) & Food in East Bay

I second Pyramid Brewery. I take my kid there to watch baseball. The food is NOT great but they have a lot of screens scattered throughout.

I like Bobby G's on University when I want to catch a game. TASTY pizza too. However you may have to crane your neck.

La Ciccia "call back tonight or else" voicemail - crossing the line or appropriate?

They were completely within their rights. You should have called the first time and not expected them to call you to confirm.

frozen fish from China: worth a try?

Grocery Outlet has various bags of frozen wild fish -- salmon, hake, flounder -- which are from China. Would you buy these? They are certainly cheap.
