Does anybody know if this is related the same principle as Herve This' chocolate chantilly (which predates the water ganache)? Just curious.

Sort of - but Herve is whipping it and Paul is just making a ganache from it.

She does lovely panned products and one of her signatures is very thin dried orange slices. She sells little jars of them - hard to see in these pictures.

Here are slices incorporated into a bar.

Love to see my town in pictures! We have a lot of fun moderately priced restaurants in town :) 

 

Check out Little Fatty for a chef's take on Taiwanese american food in Culver City (and the attached Accomplice Bar).

 

Father's Office (Culver City)  The bar that launched the burger craze in LA years ago has incredible food (smoked eel salad) with a nice patio as well as beer/wine/cocktails

 

Sawtelle/Japantown/Little Osaka is also not far away 

 

Gjusta (Venice) defines the LA food scene for me with incredible produce, in house bread/ pastry program, Cured fish, smoked meats, good coffee and eclectic atmosphere 

 

Enjoy!!

With a bit of a rush to the airport hotel for @Gwbyls and to the airport for me - we went out in search of a bite.

 

Never having tried a Chipotle - it seemed time.

Next time - think I'll hold out for the In and Out Burger or Five Guys.
