tra LA LA LA LA.

i spent last week eating and drinking and cavorting in the city of angels.

two words: ripe tomatos. and cherries. and artichokes as big as your head.

spent lots of time with salami master armandino batali, proud papa of mr. mario. he makes some great meat.

My own personal heaven.

and then there’s the odessa market (santa monica and fairfax) that sells:

yep, pork and beef…in a can. they also had some nice eggplant preserves and, of course, lots of smoked fish.

i also wanted this:

but it was kind of pricey, and, let’s face it, i can probably make one myself.

anyway, all in all i had a great time with my gracious hosts (the italians):

The Italians.

and while i don’t think i could ever bring myself to actually live in L.A., it sure is a nice place to while away some time.
