"Off Menu" - new LA Times food video series on YouTube

Recommended Posts

In addition to resurrecting a weekly, stand-alone food section, the LA Times recently launched a 10-week series of short videos titled "Off Menu."  

In the first episode,  Thai Town restauranteur Jazz Singsanong, owner of Jitlada, accompanies the host, Lucas Peterson to a giant Los Angeles Asian market to shop then back to her restaurant to cook some home style dishes. 

It's available freely on YouTube, though the accompanying recipe for nam prik goong may be behind a paywall.

 

I had to laugh when he said that you could find anything at LAX-C, the market they visited.  It may be true that everything is there but I can attest that finding it in that huge market can be quite another thing!

This week's episode is a road trip to Tijuana with Victor Delgado and Jorge Alvarez-Tostado, owners of Tacos 1986, now in downtown LA.  

The Times article includes a recipe for their Tacos al Hongo, vegan mushroom tacos and salsa macha.

The Thursday Food Section is the only part of the LAT I can tolerate - they upped their game. Of course when someone talks about Jazz - all I can think is J Gold. So painful.
