I've been spending a decent amount of time lately dining in downtown Los Angeles. With the metro now connecting Santa Monica to the city center, it's easier than ever to make a trip. My last downtown dining adventure was at 71 Above, coupled with some culture at the Broad Museum. It was going to be hard to top that evening, but on this evening's line up was a Leslie Odom show at Disney Hall, preceded by dinner at Shibumi.
One of my favorite cookbooks isn't a cookbook at all, or at least not in the traditional sense. It's called The Flavor Bible and it's simply a listing of ingredients. It tells you what seasonings, herbs, and spices go with which ingredients. So I was super excited to hear that Karen Page, one of the authors of Flavor Bible, has written a new book called Kitchen Creativity. The book was the inspiration for today's recipe for paleo lemon chicken with mint gremolata and bacon.
