Sunday Night’s All Right for Fighting Amongst Chefs

As anyone who has stumbled upon the Food Network over the last decade could tell you, culinary battles between two exceptional chefs are a remarkably refreshing concoction made up of equal parts intensity, craftsmanship, and flat out fun. So much so, in fact, that when one’s remote finds an episode of “Iron Chef America” or “Chopped,” it is mighty difficult to switch channels or even get off of the futon. But if a gastronomic donnybrook is highly entertaining on television,…

Sundried Tomato Proves There’s More to San Clemente than Beach

By Rich Manning

Whenever I have driven southbound on I-5 and found the need to exit in San Clemente, I always knew to tur n right. This instinct was derived solely from my preconception that all commerce and fun occurred within walking distance of the coastline. This thought process was so thoroughly ingrained in my bean that I had grown suspect of any street going east lasting longer than a half-mile it traversed beneath the interstate. So imagine my surprise when our GPS…

Matahari Café: Genuine Culinary Excitement on the Balboa Peninsula

by Rich Manning

The Balboa Peninsula has long satiated on a reputation for being laid back and casual. The presence of row upon row of tightly packed bungalows that practically rub walls with each other, the nostalgic boardwalk feel of its Fun Zone, and the requisite hang loose attitude permeated by surfers en route to The Wedge certainly renews that calling card practically every weekend. And to be sure, local business by and large responds in kind to the… Continue

My Struggle of Food Nostalgia

If there were two chain restaurants that could define my culinary youth beyond the parameters of my parents' kitchen and the drive-thru window, they would have to be Farrell's and Bob's Big Boy. It's not all that difficult to imagine why a pudgy-kid-turned-corpulent-adult like me would have fond memories of either: The former had copious amounts of gargantuan desserts in which I could indulge, and the latter offered a foray into food as a canvas for flavor creativity via items like chili… Continue
