Any entry on this list would be well worth repeating.
Every Monday, Food of the Week celebrates my favorite dish from the previous seven days. I live in Los Angeles, one of the world’s best places to eat, and was lucky enough to travel to places like Hawaii (Kauai and Honolulu), Canada (Banff and Calgary), Colombia (Cali), Mexico City, and several trips within California, spanning from San Diego to the Napa Valley. Along the way, I took hundreds of hopeful bites before finally taking stock. Discover my 10 favorite dishes from 2018.
