Los Angeles Restaurants Excerpt :

Los Angeles is one of the top restaurant cities in the world, and while much of the focus is on the new, it's the old standbys that offer a true taste of the city. These classic locales--best termed "joints" for their timeless flair--offer a unique perspective into the city's past and, in their enduring appeal, reveal what LA continues to be. Featuring more than fifty joints, including profiles of longtime patrons, plus their favorite menu items, "Los Angeles Restaurants" is proof that sometimes a dark corner booth in a mid-century steakhouse or a spot at a busy lunch counter is the best seat in town. "Los Angeles Restaurants" is more than a guidebook to the city's most iconic restaurants--it's a photographic adventure providing a fresh serving of the city's colorful past and its vibrant present.

In Everything I Want to Eat, Koslow shares 100 of her favorite recipes for health-conscious but delicious dishes, all of which always use real foods—no fake meat or fake sugar here—that also happen to be suitable for vegetarians, vegans, or whomever you’re sharing your meal with. The book is organized into seven chapters, each featuring a collection of recipes centered on a key ingredient or theme. Expect to find recipes for dishes Sqirl has become known for, as well as brand-new seasonal flavor combinations, including: Raspberry and cardamom jam Sorrel-pesto rice bowl Burnt brioche toast with house ricotta and seasonal jam Lamb merguez, cranberry beans, roasted tomato, and yogurt cheese Valrhona chocolate fleur de sel cookies Almond hazelnut milk Koslow lives in LA, where everyone is known to be obsessively health-conscious and where dietary restrictions are the norm. People come into Sqirl and order dishes with all sorts of substitutions and modifications—hold the feta, please, add extra kale. They are looking to make their own healthy adventures.

Throughout this book, Koslow provides notes and thought bubbles that show how just about any dish can be modified for specific tastes and dietary needs, whether it needs to be gluten-free or vegan.
