    Hi Evan
    Have you tried Marionberries from Oregon, they are the very best berries for pies or anything else.
    The Fritos in the bag snack have been served in California since the beginning of Fritos, probably 70 years. The true name for them us Pepperbellies.
    Thanks,
    Yvonne

    I love all of your LA restaurant recommendations. I'll be traveling there this weekend
    and need some tasty restaurant suggestions for large groups, including children. We will be a total
    of 11-13. Must also be affordable. Can travel most locations but our locus is Monterey Park.

    I attended your recent pie class at the New School. I have a question. After reviewing your recipe for the pie crust, I can't tell if it is written for one crust or two. So, the question is is the recipe for 1 or 2 crusts.
    I suspect 1 given how thick the crusts were at the class, but the quantities are nearly double that found in a standard cookbook for a one crust pie. I get confused because the instructions say to break the dough into 2 disks and refrigerate them separately. They don't say anything about combining the disks when you roll them out. It would be helpful if the recipes indicated how much one is making, or how many people the recipe serves. Thanks much.

    Hello Evan. We love the show.
    You had a wonderful crab dumpling recipe on the website at one point and be damned if I can find it now that I have some fresh crab and want to try it….
    Can you please tell me where I can find it? They were the type of dumpling that had liquid inside.

      Hi Brad,

      Apologies for the late reply, but I believe the song you’re referring to is ‘A Night Like This’ by Caro Emerald. Let us know if that’s it!

    I don’t know if you entertain recommendations for the Cookbook Club books, but I was intrigued by the New Persian Kitchen author on your show earlier this year. I’ve enjoyed all of the books I’ve received so far. I have to create a new cookbook shelf.
