Canele: In the Friends Cook at Canele dinner series, Amy Seidenwurm of Feral Honey guest chefs at the Atwater Village restaurant on Tuesday. For $36, you get shaved Brussels sprouts salad with dates, toasted walnuts, Stilton and honey vinaigrette; smoky honey-cured slow-roasted salmon with white beans and cavolo nero (the vegetarian option substitutes pasta for salmon); and spicy ginger honey cake with honey gelato. "I'll be curing the salmon on Sunday morning, smoking it on Sunday night and then we'll slow roast it on Tuesday," Seidenwurm says. "It's kind of an ordeal, but it tastes good when you eat it." Call for reservations. 3219 Glendale Blvd., (323) 666-7133; www.canele-la.com.
