This week on Good Food, host Evan Kleiman channels her inner I Love Lucy and goes grape stomping. Eddie Lin takes us to the Phoenix Bakery for some mooncakes. We'll head to Huntington Beach for some tacos with Gustavo Arellano. Rowan Jacobsen explains the concept of terroir while Christophe Happillon says there is a similar thing for seafood called merroir. Jonathan Gold is eating mozzarella in Century City. We'll find the best bacon dishes in LA with Thrillist's Jeff Miller. And as summer moves to fall, we're experiencing season overlap at the farmers market. This week on the market report, Amelia Saltsman shares a recipe for a roasted tomato sauce. We should have tomatoes and melons until November.
