And the award for The Most Beautiful Chirashi Bowl goes to...
I'm reporting on the latest food and travel trends -- from Sichuan cuisine to bone broth and everything in between -- this morning on @CBSradio with @tasteofpace. As Pace says, I'm the official bullshit filter when it comes to food. Have a listen at the link in my profile!
Holy guacamole you guys! I am freaking out over this globally-inspired @parkernewyork dress. It's the perfect scuba material for stowing away in a suitcase wrinkle-free and definitely comfy enough for an international eater like myself. (Sorry sweatpants! 😉) Mama needs a payday -- and an plane ticket somewhere fabulous -- stat! ✈️💅👗
Open since 1980 and one of Julia Child's favorites, this little Santa Barbara taqueria is a must-stop on a road trip up the coast. There's always a queue out the door for dishes like this Super Rica Especial -- roasted pasilla peppers, al pastor, and melted cheese atop handmade tortillas. As far as tacos go, LA will always have my heart, but it's great bite of local culture in SB. #seesb
Chirashi bowls are the perfect affordable meal for an ADD eater like myself. Super cheap -- $12.50 at Hide, for instance -- and you get all.the.things! Here it's lovely sticky rice, kinshi tomago (shredded omelette), togarashi (rice seasoning), and an assortment of fresh sashimi (raw fish) and pickles. Can't wait to try the real deal in Japan with @mkretovics in May! ✈️🇯🇵💋
Super stoked for @mvoltaggio and @marianavz new @travelchannel show Breaking Borders. The preview last night at UTA was incredible. So happy to finally see a badass female reporter on travel television NOT rocking a bikini. Tune in March 15 for the premiere episode covering conflict -- and possible resolution thru food -- in Israel/Palestine. 🙌🙌🙌
Bento and I enjoying our last few moments of sunshine before checking out @thegoodlandsb. Seriously one of the cutest pooch friendly hotels around! (📷by @mkretovics, weekender by @willleathergoods) #seesb
Obsessed with every nook and cranny of @thegoodlandsb designed by Studio Collective. This here's the Outpost bar and outdoor seating area near the palm tree lined pool. You can bet your buttons I'll be headed there after morning yoga! #seesb
Oh Goodland, you had me at hello! And by hello I mean the boozy Italian soda bar waiting for me in-room upon arrival. You are GOOD!
When it comes to the berry donut game, the Donut Man has some serious competition. If you haven't had @DonutSnob's impossibly light, delightfully tart razzy lemon lulu, do yourself a favor and head over to @CofaxCoffee, stat. It's easy to get distracted by the bonkers breakfast burritos, but keep your eye on the prize people! 🍩☕️👌
You guys!!! @mkretovics and I just bought tickets to a place I have been aching with ALL MY SOUL to visit for the longest time! And it's for FUN, not work, another landmark! Can you guess where?!? Hint: I made this kelp noodle salad with ponzu miso vinaigrette to celebrate. #tasteintravel
Had such a blast lecturing @USCAnnenberg speaking on the importance of social media and Instagram for building your brand as a multimedia food reporter. Here I'm chatting about getting up-close-and-personal with your dish using @olloclip's wide angle lens for your iPhone, and going over some basic rules of composition and lighting. So inspired by these students, and can't wait to come back next semester! #USCAnnenberg #USCfeedia
One of my favorite parts of living in an international city like LA is that you can totally travel through your tastebuds. Case in point: all the amazing sandwiches from around the globe that I rounded up today on the site. From Venezuelan arepas to Israeli laffas and Danish smorebrod it's all here! Check out the link in my profile and prepare to have your tummy a-growlin.
Hang tight Oscar noms, there's carbs around the corner! Everyone's a winner with this BONKERS good gilded baked potato loaded with caviar, creme fraiche, and chives by @ChefWolfgangPuck for tonight's Governor's Ball. #oscars2015 #oscarswithwolfgang
Just like in cinema, the classics never get old. Loving this push pop filled with strawberries and luscious white cake by @ChefWolfgangPuck @theacademy Ocscar's party! 🍰👌#oscars2015
Wishing you all a very prosperous New Year! I for one am hoping I'm lucky enough to stuff my face with more of these incredible, crackly bottomed shen jian bao dumplings from Shanghai. And I f you wanna take a digital trip to the streets of China to celebrate, check out the vid in my profile!
These delightful sweets have me daydreaming of the day I'll get to see @pierreherme @raffleshotels. I'll visit you and your incredible pastries soon, mon ami Paris! 💋✈️🇫🇷
In honor of Mardi Gras, I've rounded up a few of my favorite bites in New Orleans on my site. Is it really any surprise that Cafe Du Monde's dreamy beignets and cafe au lait made the cut? Check out the link in my profile for my faves, and happy Fat Tuesday! (📷 @amateurgourmet)
Still stressin on V-Day prezzies? Why not MAKE your sweet pea a bouquet at the awesome new DIY flower bar Fleurish? So fun and so much more personal. They do a full on florist tutorial and walk you thru arranging your own personalized bouquet -- like Color Me Mine for flowers! This is the Winter Solstice arrangement with lisianthus, olive branches, white roses, tulips and silver berzelia berries. It's a great girls' day activity too. My mom and I had a blast! I 💜this place! #dstexture
Honey glaze and pecans atop the fluffiest, lightest cloud of raised dough. @RepubliqueLA, you always rock my world. I'm not even a donut person -- they usually make my tummy feel really icky -- but this one was DIVINE. (@letmeeatcake you MUST try this!) 🍩👌
