EREWHON CALABASAS

Erewhon is my #1 food store in the city. I have been going to their Beverly Blvd. location since I was a kid (Thanks Mom for being such a wise foodie!). I'm so excited to see them expanding with new stores - Erewhon Calabasas recently celebrated their 1st Anniversary and their Venice location is opening soon.

Erewhon's strict and uncompromising health and ingredient standards put most other markets to shame. I won't name any names. ;) They are also ballsy enough to carry raw milk, which is a rarity, even in our progressive and health conscious city. You won't see any corn syrup or artificial anything in their store. You can see the complete list of products NOT carried at the store and learn more about their dedication to carrying only fresh, sustainable and the healthiest foods. 

It's nice not to have to weed through conventional produce - because all of this is organic!

Are you a Bulletproof devotee? Erewhon has got you covered.

I am the biggest fan our their organic cold pressed juices and elixirs. 

Never want for fermented veggies again. 

You can grab wine for your next dinner party too.

I love coming here for dinner! The cook up amazing organic foods all day.

They even have wild caught sushi. 

B loves partying in the store with this delish organic "poppie-corn." We love you Erewhon!!! xx

Erewhon Calabasa is located at: 26767 Agoura Rd., Calabasas, 91302

DINNER AT THE TASTING KITCHEN

It seems to me that Venice's Abbott Kinney is pretty much where it's at for restaurants these days. A few gal pals and I had a fun ladies' night out at Chef Casey Lane's The Tasting Kitchen. Featuring a daily changing "bill of fare," we tried a bunch of different dishes and drinks. Here's what went down.

Style is on point with the leather covered Eames chairs and the bare wood-top tables. Love the "indoor" trees.

Today's menu.

The frosted process coupe was a really nice touch, I gotta say.

Cheers, Ladies.

Warm housemate bread and butter is basically the best thing in the world. 

Five cocktails for four ladies. That's about right.

Charcuterie platter. The fluffy empanadas were fun to stuff with meats and burrata. 

Raddicchio Salad.

Pesce Crudo.

Muscles with Saffron Cream.

Tagliarini with Shrimp & Serrano, Roasted Lamb Leg and Creste di Gallo with Calabrian Sausage and Breadcrumbs

I think we tried almost every dessert.

Ice Cream is always king. Especially the house-made mint chip. Ladies night, every night? xx
