Looking back, here are my 10 favorite dishes from 2014.

Thanks for sharing!nice job!

zomg that tomato agadashi is one of the best bites in Los Angeles.

totally agreed! (tomato agedashi)

That pasta by Jonathan Sawyer was really fantastic.

Mattatouille, Very cool that we both got to experience Jonathon Sawyer’s pasta, and the tomato agadashi. Hopefully 2015 will be just as flavorful for both of us.
