There aren't enough black shoppers for me to make any sweeping generalizations, but the store always has really good soul music playing (hearing The Charmels at a supermarket is a WTF moment).

had to laugh. we used to live at third and fairfax, when the great russian jewish influx was in full flood. The supermarket behind had formerly been the province of the world's nastiest old German jews (90-year-old grandmas who would push your cart out of the way to cut in line and then look at you like "you want a piece of me?"). suddenly they found themselves getting pushed around by these burly, extremely angry men with 5'o'clock shadows and long leather jackets. of course, now that place is known as "The Whole Foods at the Grove" or somesuch and its probably full of passive aggressive screenwriters.

skate with chanterelle ragout (yeah, the presentation didn't work out so well with this one. My bad.)

kale with carrots, baked tofu, and sesame seeds. Really delicious, the dressing was basically tamari soy sauce, brown rice vinegar, siracha, ginger, and sesame seed oil

The Ottolenghi leek fritters are awesome. Do try them.

Season with nutmeg. Then to finish just reheat to a boil, add some cream and emulsify in some butter.

I thought the German and Hungarian Jews all lived in MacArthur Park until the mid 1980s.

I tried the lettuce soup. My blender wasn't strong enough to make a purée and no strainer to strain so it wasn't as pretty. I also overboiled the soup and it turned olive green. Looked gross but tasted pretty good.

These all look really, really nice, by the way. Even the skate, which is the least successful looking, is very appetizing.

See above for soup. For the custard, I sauteed about a quarter pound of bacon with some sweet onions, let them cook down without browning, then I added 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of cream, let it simmer a minute, then covered with plastic and let it steep for half an hour or so. Then I strained it, put it in the fridge, and when cold I added one extra large egg. Then I strained that into the bottom of soup bowls, covered and cooked in a waterbath in the oven until just set. From there they can sit a bit. The hot soup warms them up.

That stuff was all American Jews moving from Boyle Heights and the East Coast.
