Beat the heat with cold soup Culinary traditions in Europe favor chilled soup in the summertime. Americans are familiar with gazpacho and vichyssoise from Mediterranean countries. Borscht, a dark red beet soup and sorrel-flavored shav are common in Eastern Europe. In Scandinavia, berries and cherries appear in thick porridge or clear broth. Summer soups can start a meal, star as the entree or be prepared as a filling, cold snack. Old-fashioned soups often used quarts of heavy cream or lashings of sour cream.

In the 1950s, owners of a dude ranch in Southern California came up with a new salad dressing to serve their guests. They called it ranch dressing and you know the rest of the story. Today it’s an empire, and pretty much anything that’s not nailed down has been dipped in it and consumed. I recently saw teenagers at an eatery here on Foothill Boulevard dipping pizza into ranch dressing. Having just written that, you may be expecting an article about the fat content of the aforementioned snack, but I have bigger ranch-dipped fish to fry. Let’s say the average Joe will put about four tablespoons of ranch dressing on a salad — the specially-designed wide mouth bottle is difficult to stop pouring, but we’ll assume it stops at 4 tablespoons and quantify that serving.

In the fifties, owners of a dude ranch in Southern California came up with a new salad dressing to serve their guests. They named it “Ranch dressing” and you know the rest of the story. Today it’s an empire, and pretty much anything that’s not nailed down has been dipped in it and consumed. I recently saw teenagers eating ranch-dipped pizza. Having just written that, you may be expecting an article about the fat content of the aforementioned snack, but I have bigger ranch-dipped fish to fry. Let’s say the average Joe will put about four tablespoons of ranch dressing on a salad—the specially-designed wide mouth bottle allows it to pour out fast, but we’ll assume it stops at 4 tablespoons and quantify that serving.

Imagine yourself playing a word association game with me. I say, "Quark." What's your response? Someone with a strong science background might recognize "quark" as a quantum physics term. If you've used a certain computer program, you'll reply, "express." Only a few respondents will say, "cheese." Dairy farmers in Germany produce quark, a soft cheese, for homemakers and commercial bakers. A fresh cheese product with a short shelf life, quark would not travel well to America.

The twists were great and the pies were fabulous. Buttermilk pie, (crusts made by dumping the flour and milk right in the pie pans and mixing with hands, no bowl, no utensils), and an Amish milche filtche pie that left everybody clamoring for the recipe, which I then had to post on the Guild's website. By the time Beth arrived (a tired but champion daughter in tow) carting the chafing dishes, the salads the plates and glasses and flatware she'd rolled in autumnal napkins and tied with raffia, the drinks and the wine (hey!

The first time you drive to Altaeats, you'll probably miss it. Situated between a salon and a cleaners on North Allen just south of New York Drive, the diminutive Altadena eatery has no sign, only a black awning. But find it you must. It's not often a restaurant with such meticulously prepared dishes opens in our drivable realm. A couple years back, head chef and co-owner Paul Ragan, formerly of Derek's Bistro in Pasadena, was walking his Altadena neighborhood, toying with the idea of buying a food truck when he came upon this vacant property.

Dining with Duvall By Lynn Duvall On New Year's Eve I cooked an ambitious dinner for my friends Judie and Pepe. When we finished, I asked them to be food critics and rate the meal. The overall dinner rated a B-plus. Bob, Judie and Pepe also graded each dish separately. You may recall that I mentioned I would be trying a crimini mushroom-mashed potato recipe on Christmas Day. I'd highly recommended a book which presented the side dish as part of a Christmas Day menu.

In the restaurant business, the phrase "soft opening" indicates a new venue will start to serve customers without the fanfare and pressure of a grand opening. Kinks in service, preparation, inventory computer programs and construction finishing can be ironed out as the new personnel learn their way around the house. Minx Restaurant and Lounge in the Glendale foothills has softly opened, quietly serving dinner for the past couple weeks in the Glendale foothill location of the former Rusty Pelican.
