The LA 'hounds were very helpful a few weeks back in responding to my request for grocery shopping recommendations, but now I learn that our dear daughter lacks much of what one would need to actually prepare a decent dinner. Any thoughts on where to get some quality cookware at a discount? Knives, in particular. (I guess she and her roommate presently bludgeon their food ...) We'll try to pull the classic two-fer: combination of Christmas presents and the means of survival.
We're coming into LA on the 19th and will be staying in Brentwood. However, we don't mind taking a drive 'most anywhere in LA to find good food and good stuff.
All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
