Every Monday, Food of the Week celebrates my favorite dish from the previous 7 days. I live in Los Angeles, a culinary epicenter, and was lucky enough to travel to places like Baja California del Sur, Hawaii (Maui and Oahu), San Diego and San Francisco. Along the way, I took dozens of tantalizing tastes. Looking back, here are my 2015 Top 10 Foods, which appear in order of preference.
