If you can stand to schlep additional weight in the summer heat, then bring extra bags for the good deals to be found on bound volumes this Sunday at the Hollywood Farmers' Market. The Culinary Historians of Southern California sponsors its thirteenth annual used cookbook sale, which benefits the Culinary Collections at the Los Angeles Public Library. Arrive early for the best browsing, selection, and inspiration.

An extra Hollywood market FYI via SEE-LA regarding recent changes. Relatively new producers include Bautista Dates, Sage Mountain Farm, D & G Produce, and Bolanos Family Farm. Yummy Fish's fresh grilled fish and shrimp and C'est La V Bakeshop's vegan goods add to the prepared food choices. Meanwhile, Mill Road Orchard, Flora Bella Farm, Sea Fever, Flan King, and Urban Green no longer maintain a presence.

Culinary Historians' used cookbook sale: Sunday, 8:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m., on Ivar and Selma Aves., between Hollywood & Sunset Blvds.

    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
