  • Talking organic gardening, compost (and rats!) with Christy Wilhelmi

    In my Spreecast with organic gardener Christy Wilhelmi, author of the new book "Gardening for Geeks," I learned a lot: that white mildew can be treated with lactic acid, that you should never buy tall vegetable seedlings at the nursery and that...
  • NBC hopes crime thriller fans will eat 'Hannibal' up

    You just can't keep a good cannibal down. More than three decades after he first murdered and chomped his way to pop culture infamy, sophisticated serial murderer Hannibal Lecter is back, alive and well-fed. And although he has gone from the big...

    In 50th year, Scholar Athlete award continues impact on local high school sports
    The plaque hangs on the wall of the doctor's office, proof of its worth to Greg Brouse, 1981 grand-prize winner of the Greater Baltimore Chapter of the National Football Foundation Scholar Athlete award. "My kids can't believe I was either a scholar...

    Columbia Foodies share epicurean delights
    The Pissaladiere Nicoise, an onion tart studded with black olives and anchovies, is being passed around to the dinner guests while the Navets a la Champenoise, a turnip casserole, and braised stuffed breast of veal finish in the oven. A French Frisee...
  • Shaking up spring

    Shaking up spring
    The fledgling bird fixes her eyes on the horizon, draws a beakful of air and jumps. The fledgling girl fixes her eyes on the horizon, draws a deep breath and sighs. So many speed bumps. Waiting nearly 16 years, enduring 30 hours of classroom drivers'...
  • The Review: Patina

    The Review: Patina
    As friends and I step into Patina, the figures of the hostess, manager, bartender, server and sommelier awake from their enchantment. They move forward, murmur a greeting and lead us to a table in the elegant, modernist dining room. Sometimes it feels...
  • Restaurant review: Osteria la Buca

    Restaurant review: Osteria la Buca
    I sincerely hate to break it to anybody who hasn't heard by now, but mamma's gone. Mamma Loredana moved out, with her son Filipo Cortivo, from Osteria la Buca two chefs ago and opened her own place, Osteria Mamma, on Melrose Avenue a few blocks west of La...

    Restaurant review: Ombra Ristorante in Studio City
    In Venice, Italy, friends who've met in the street will go off to drink un ombra, slang for a small glass of wine. That's the name of a new Italian restaurant that opened quietly a few months ago in Studio City. Chef-owner Michael J. Young is crazy enough...
  • The Find: Olive Tree in Anaheim

    The Find: Olive Tree in Anaheim
    The fatit hummus at Olive Tree is a dish of geological depth, a dip of distinct strata. Slicked across its top is a layer of yogurt puddled with olive oil and dusted with cumin and paprika. Pine nuts dot the surface like pale pebbles. Embedded in the warm...
  • Restaurant review: M.B. Post delivers

    Restaurant review: M.B. Post delivers
    The concrete walls of the new M.B. Post (short for Manhattan Beach Post) are stenciled with giant faded postmarks beneath a barrel-vaulted ceiling. The design by Stephen Francis Jones of SF Jones Architects plays off the fact that from the '50s through...
  • The Review: First & Hope

    The Review: First & Hope
    As the hostess at First & Hope, the new downtown supper club, looks over her reservation book, I can't help noticing the bunch of bananas tattooed on her arm. Somehow, that cheerful yellow bunch coupled with her dramatic pearl gray evening gown says it...
