What’s your favorite Los Angeles Christmas tradition? We asked eight past guests of the LA Foodie Podcast. Those stories are collected here for your enjoyment.
Do you remember this from last year? Since we’re all on Christmas Break (and taking some “me” time), we’re re-gifting our favorite segment from last year’s Christmas special. Feliz Navidad! A couple of things have changed since last year. For one, Elina Shatkin is now a Senior Editor at LA Magazine. And sadly, the hunky santas that Heather Thomson loves so much are not appearing at the Beverly Center this year. We also hear awesome Los Angeles Christmas stories from Jimmy Callahan, Paul Cibis, Liz Miller, Adam Campbell-Schmitt, Jude Shelton, and Patrick McGilligan.
The entire video podcast, complete with DVD style navigation and menu (you can skip to any part of the show from any other part of the show—oh yes), is right here:
Ben and Drew raid Kasey’s Kitchen and try some tasty treats. Then Kasey gets blindfolded for What Did We Put In Your Mouth? and tries to guess what kind of cupcake she’s eating. Ben and Drew talk pizza with the release of LA Weekly’s top 10 pizza list. They also chat about chocolate chip cookies. 3-2-1 Cake is piquing Lisa’s Pinterest. Frankenstein Makes a Sandwich and Spherical Ice Trays get LA Foodie Approved, and Olio features on Yelp/CounterYelp.
Here are links to each video segment of the show on YouTube:
Join Ben and Drew in a special minisode straight from Ototberfest! Alpine Village’s annual tradition of beer, food, beer, dancing, and beer comes alive in your earholes. It’s crazy, it’s a mite stumbly, and it’s a wee bit Drew-getting-molestedy… it’s OKTOBERFEST!
And for some photo evidence of all this tomfoolery, check out our Flickr gallery which I totally remember like 70% of!
This podcast was originally recorded on May 8th, 2012. Ted Porter joins the Food Dudes for a very casual conversation about Irish bars, the sad but expected closing of Bodega Wine Bar in Hollywood, delicious handmade chocolates, a powerful Yelp/CounterYelp performance—and what show would be complete without a game of “What Did We Put In Your Mouth?”
