After eating a box of Little John’s English Toffee I’m reminded by how amazing the candy is at this place in the Farmers Market. It’s a pillar of old fashioned restraint and perfection. And the idea that someone stirs that copper cauldron by hand several times a week for 46 years! They’ve had only three candy makers in all that time. I buy a box for my mom every year at Christmas. It’s a wonderful gift that reminds me of LA’s great food history!
