Raw milk is legal in California, but the sale is often clandestine. Dana Goodyear sorts through the secrecy and the laws surrounding raw milk in the US. When was the last time you ordered a sherry?

Joy Wilson (aka Joy the Baker) remembers baking with her dad at four in the morning when he came home from his night shift, and Hank Will expands our knowledge of lard. Lesley Barger Suter curates a selection of LA's top cheap eateries and Jonathan Gold wonders if bacon has finally jumped the shark.
