Jason Kessler then continued his conversation with Jet and revealed a discovery. Jason is from Chicago and he’s finally uncovered a deep dish pizza spot that’s comparable to the best in Chicago!
In the Fairfax district he’s become a fan of Hollywood Pies @ 6616 and ½ W. Pico Blvd. Phone – (323) 337-3212. This underground spot has been at various locations and recently moved here. It’s take-out or delivery right now with seating planned for the future. If you’re out of their delivery area you need to call ahead and order. At the scheduled pick-up time you call from the curb and the pizza comes out to you.
It’s the first Saturday in December and abundant Holiday Cheer will be with us for the month.
Joining Jet in studio will be Chef Greg Harrison, the accomplished new exec at the iconic, 48-year old Five Crowns in Corona del Mar. The Holidays are always a special time of celebration at Five Crowns and Chef Greg will be telling us about his new touches added to the traditional festivities.
Five Crowns has always been the establishment of choice to celebrate special occasions and still is. Since Chef Greg’s arrival he’s enhanced the menu to retain the signature classics while offering an updated selection of more contemporary dishes.
When you’re talking about the Mexican regional cuisine of Oaxaca no one does it better than the Lopez Family behind the two very popular Guelaguetza restaurants in Los Angeles and in the Plaza Mexico in Lynwood.
Lopez Family scion, Bricia, will be joining us to provide the basic 411 on Tequila and Mezcal (which originated in Oaxaca.)
That weekend he rubbed shoulders with some of the most accomplished chefs in the world including Rene Redzepi of Noma in Copenhagen (regarded by many restaurant critics as the Number One restaurant in the world,) and New York-based David Chang of Momofuku fame. Jason also got to chat with Australian star chefs Tetsuya Wakada (Tetsuya’s,) Neil Perry (Rockpool,) and Peter Gilmore (Quay,) all Sydney-based.
