Guest Interview Market Report 7 MIN
Brendan Collins is the chef/owner of Waterloo and City in Culver City (12517 W. Washington Blvd., Culver City).  He is making a salad with salt roasted torpedo beets.  The beets are buried in salt and roasted.  He serves it with a blackberry balsamic vinegar.  A recipe for Brendan's blackberry vinaigrette is here.


Farmer Jerry Rutiz has artichokes at the Santa Monica Farmers Market.  They are the seeded variety and therefore a little more tender.  See pictures of his stand here

Guest Interview Smoke City with Jonathan Gold 7 MIN
This week’s restaurant recommendation from the LA Weekly's Jonathan Gold is Smoke City Market, serving Texas barbecue in Sherman Oaks.  Their barbecue is served without sauce – they have it, they don’t recommend using it.  Jonathan likes the brisket mostly.  It’s seasoned with salt, pepper and smoke.  They have chicken, baby back ribs, beef ribs, sausage and the requisite sides, but the brisket is the recommended item to order.
