This Week’s Good Food is All About Lunch!


If you are a big fan of lunch (and if you’re reading this site, we can only assume you are) you’ll want to listen to Good Food w/ Evan Kleiman on KCRW this weekend.  The episode is all about lunch, featuring segments about white bread, bento boxes, school lunches and street food.  Plus The Guru talks about a dim sum place in Alhambra, and I give these four recommendations for lunches around town…

The episode airs on Saturday morning at 11am on KCRW (89.9 FM) or you can download the podcast after it airs on the Good Food website.

Hear Me On KCRW’s Good Food This Weekend

If you’re reading this blog you must love reading about gluttony… but if you want to hear what fatness sounds like, you should listen to KCRW’s Good Food this Saturday at 11am!  I’ll be on with Evan Kleinman talking about… wait for it… wait for it… lunch!  Ironically enough I’m on after Peter Meehan, who will be talking about Lucky Peach- the magazine that inspired my tsukemen frenzy back in November.  If you miss the show, you’ll be able to hear a podcast of it on the KCRW website after the show airs.  And if you want to read more about the lunches I talk about, here they are:

Good Food To Throw Benefit For Nina’s Food After Vendy Award Brings Negative Attention

You would think that winning the First Annual L.A. Vendy Awards would have been a great thing for any of the nominated vendors… but sadly it’s been bittersweet for Nina’s Food, the Breed St. Vendor who took home the top prize last month in MacArthur Park.  Since winning the Vendy Award Nina’s has attracted a ton of new customers and press, and sadly the extra attention has resulted in an increase in the attention from the police too.  She’s been shut down and harassed so often since the Vendy’s, she doesn’t think she can continue unless she gets a truck, which she can’t afford.  (Until now, she’s vended from a table.)

Enter Vendy Award Judge, and Good Food host, Chef Evan Kleiman who has put together a benefit to help Nina raise the money she needs to get a truck.  The event will take place at Evan’s restaurant, Angeli Cafe, this Sunday (June 20th) from 11am to 3pm. It’s a chance to make a difference and eat some great food. Get more details here>>
