Saving the Season: Tomatoes

A 1-day workshop exploring all things tomatoes

 
Crushed Canned Dried Powdered Pasta Chutney Bloody Mary’s

$195 {includes a rustic tomato-themed farm lunch, beverages, ingredients and supplies}Saturday, September 8, 2012   10am – 4pm

The end of summer means the end of tomato season. But we don’t let that stop us! We’re talking home-grown, heirloom and vine ripe, not those tasteless Franken-matoes that you can get year round. Here at the Institute we once again have  Saving the Season  author Kevin West as our tour guide to discovering how to preserve, transform and enjoy the bounty of Southern California’s tomato harvest. This full-day, hands-on workshop held at the Institute headquarters on the grounds of the historic Zane Grey Estate in Altadena, will prepare you to “put up” summer’s bounty. From drying and canning, to pasta making and powdering, we’ll set you on your way to preserving the late summer’ness of real tomatoes until next year!

Each participant will be sent home with their very own swag bag filled with the creations they’ve made throughout the day and a custom instruction manual with recipes and a resource guide.

The second iteration attempts to once again recreate the Asian night market experience with a bit of Los Angeles culture.

How can small businesses rein in their credit card debt and live debt free?
 

When you set up a new business organization, you usually fall short of cash and this is the reason that most business owners use their credit cards while making the vital and necessary purchases.
As they start whipping their plastics for more purchases than what they can afford, they start incurring high interest debt for which they tarnish their business as well as their personal financial records. If you’re someone who has incurred a huge amount of commercial credit card debt, you need not worry as there are credit card consolidation ways in which you can reduce the debt level. Check out some such ways.

 Get help from a credit counseling agency:

The first option that a business owner shouldopt for is to get help from a credit counseling agency. The credit counseling agencies are more like teaching organizations that can help a debtor assess his finances and take some simple financial moves on your own. The credit counselor will determine your present financial state; check the amount of revenue that is being earned and the debt that you owe. He will craft a frugal budget for you so that you can follow it and also manage your personal finances to get out of debt. When they see that you can’t handle your debts on your own, they will enroll you in a DMP or a debt management program so that you can repay your debts in easy and affordable monthly payments and lower interest rates.

Take out a debt consolidation loan:

You can even take out a commercial debt consolidation loan and combine your multiple credit card payments into a single monthly payment. Just make sure that the interest rate on the debt consolidation loan is low enough so that you can actually end up saving a huge amount in the long run. Instead of making multiple payments, you can just make a single monthly payment towards the debt consolidation loan.

Therefore, when you’re wondering about the ways in which you can get out of business credit card debt, you should choose any of the above mentioned options that suit your present needs and affordability.

LA’s New Rooftop Garden @ Playa
 

Announcing Cielo Verde, Playa‘s new vertical rooftop garden! 

 Having researched the most advanced methods for small-space, sustainable urban propagation, Chef John Sedlar and Partner Bill Chait decided to create an aeroponic system based on 35 compact, drip-irrigated towers and situate it on the restaurant’s rooftop for a new kind of “rooftop-to-plate” experience. Harvesting unique and rare edibles, the garden features wild arugula, pac choi, Tuscan black kale, Great White tomatoes, Black Cherry tomatoes, Peaches and Cream corn, Manar cucumbers, Padrón peppers, borage flowers, Swiss chard, and fresh black garbanzos, among others. Chef de Cuisine Kevin Luzande and the entire Playa kitchen brigade join Chef Sedlar on a daily basis in tending to Cielo Verde.

 

From John Sedlar’s blog: The results of our dedicated labors have begun to shape the new menu at Playa—not just our food, from appetizers through desserts, but also our mixology program—and they will continue to drive our homegrown rooftop-to-table Urban Latin cuisine. Read more…

 

The New Menu

Freshly harvested produce from Cielo Verde is incorporated into select dishes; view the menu here
