Food buzz April 6 edition

The James Beard award nominations are out. Congrats to Jonathan Gold for a well-deserved nod for his Korean restaurant series and a few other articles. A few L.A. restaurants were nommed -- Spago in the old-timers category, Angelini Osteria, A.O.C.

Excellent exploration of salt in the L.A. Times. Now I'm ashamed that I use regular superfine popcorn salt on my gourmet red popcorn from Surfas. I guess it's one way to use up all that fleur de sel.

If you're heading to the Bay Area, here's 20 pizza places to try. They sound slightly more promising than L.A.'s paucity of pleasing pizzerias.

R.I.P. Algemac's. Probably not the best coffee shop in the world, but certainly one of the few places near Silver Lake with cheap breakfasts, real hash browns, and trout 'n eggs on the menu.

Oh no - Algemac's is gone?! It was a very real coffee shop, not a faux one like House of Pies or that horrible Johnny Rockets chain.

We'll miss the massively cheap (though sometimes hard-to-distinguish food items) dinners.

Speaking of using up fleur de sel, my boyfriend's mother (who is French) recently gave us a big bag of Reflets de France brand fleur de sel, which is my favourite. She told me that she had given a bag of it to her other son's wife last year, and was horrified when the wife told her the next time they met up, "Thanks for that salt - it did a great job of clearing up the ice on the front step!" There are two kinds of people in this world...
