Burmese Food; Winter Sorbets; LA's Best Food Court
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Ice cream chef Shiho Yoshikawa is using up the glut of winter citrus in her ice creams and sorbets at Sweet Rose Creamery. Myanmar is in the midst of a coming out party. Could that mean more Burmese food on the menu? Sang Yoon certainly hopes so. Plus, Stacie Hunt treats us to the best wines we've never tasted, and Jonathan Gold discovers a mall food court that resembles the culinary landscape of Los Angeles.
Market Report ()
Shiho Yoshikawa is the ice cream chef at Sweet Rose Creamery. She makes 18 flavors of ice cream and sorbet fresh each morning, all inspired by the farmers market. Yoshikawa says winter is all about citrus. A recipe for her Oro Blanco Mint Sorbet is on the Good Food Blog.
Laura Ramerez of JJ's Lone Daughter Ranch sells her kiwis and tangelos to Yoshikawa for her ice cream and sorbet flavors. Her kiwis are flavorful and best of all the skin slips right off so they are easy to peel. Her tangelos are quite flavorful and will continue to sweeten as the season continues.
Burmese Food ()
Sang Yoon is the chef and owner of Father's Office and Lukshon. He's been interested in Burmese food for several years but says it's difficult to research due to both the lack of Burmese restaurants in America and the lack of literature. He hopes that during this relaxed political climate he may be able to visit Myanmar and discover some of their national dishes and ingredients. At the moment he's using a Burmese tea leaf in one of his salads at Lukshon.
