I like the Jordan Market on Westwood Blvd. They have lots of interesting Middle Eastern stuff, like cheap packages of dried herbs. Everything is clean and pleasant, the produce is always good, and the people are nice.
Here’s a "wow" worthy holiday centerpiece that resembles a modern version of the classic ham, pineapple, and maraschino cherry combination. The glaze, pomegranate, prosciutto, and charred pineapple hit every flavor note in the book.
