I am glad I got to dine recently at Celestino Drago’s eponymous Drago restaurant in Santa Monica, as it is closing its doors at the end of the month.
I went there with James Lukanik, the maître d’ of the TV show Hell’s Kitchen. Even if he were like the foul-mouthed Gordon Ramsay, (but don’t we love Ramsay for that?), he would not have had to curse out the chef as the meal was all good!

Last night, I baked a Galette des Rois for the first time, after I finally got the recipe from a friend girl of my son. The Galette des Rois is traditional French cake served on Epiphany day, January 6th, (sorry, I was one day late). It is made of puffed pastry, and mine had a frangipane filling. A small “fève” is hidden inside. Whoever gets it is crowned the queen or the king, and then has to choose her/his mate.
Since the recipe is not mine, I can’t give it away, but you can go on GAYOT.com Recipe section to inspire yourself to cook.
Listen to me Sunday January 8th at 8.30 a.m. PST live on chef Jamie Gwen’s radio show, on KFWB 980 AM if you are in Los Angeles, or from her website if you are elsewhere. We will be discussing restaurants of course!
