Flavors From Afar uniquely highlights refugee chefs and their best recipes


The ouze — a Lebanese dish of spiced, roasted lamb shanks over rice scattered with pine nuts and slivered almonds — served at Flavors From Afar tasted very familiar.

I had recently been ordering meals from a 10-month-old takeout and delivery operation called Mama Lina Cooks, which brings to Los Angeles some homestyle aspects of Lebanese cuisine (textured stews, comforting rice dishes, stuffed vegetables) that rarely appear on menus here.

Star Wars space coffee, Disneyland’s most unusual drink, is one of its all-time best


Some people go to Disneyland because, no matter how much time passes or how many tweaks might happen to rides over the years, things will be fundamentally the same every time they return. There will always be a Disneyland Railroad blasting its whistle and always a castle, all rosy and pink, rising over Main Street.

Some people go for the exact opposite reason: because no matter how many times they’ve been, there will always be something new to experience in the parks. I’m one of those people in the latter camp. If there’s something new at Disneyland — especially if … Read more

The Homegrown Meals In This Prison Stand Out Against Most Unpalatable Jail Food : NPR


At a prison in Maine, residents tend a garden that produces much of the facility’s food. Advocates say it’s a good way to avoid the unhealthy diets served at other prisons and teach useful skills.


Food served in prisons and jails is notoriously dreadful. Picture mystery meat drenched with dull gravy with a heavy reliance on overly processed starch.

When our bodies lack nutrients, those processes won’t work as they should which could potentially lead to some health problems.
