Yeah, yeah, I know -- Brussels sprouts? Some vegetables are magnets for abuse, and the Brussels sprout is certainly one of the kings of that. But given proper respect, it is one of the finest of the cool-weather vegetables. Cooked properly, Brussels sprouts have all the delicate sweetness of great cabbage, but with a more complex vegetable flavor as well. If you really want to stun people, use them as a centerpiece--they come dozens to a single thick stalk, looking like a vegetable from Mars.

Dear SOS: La Grande Orange Cafe in the historic Santa Fe train depot in Pasadena has the most incredible Brussels sprout salad. Do you think that you can get the recipe from the restaurant? Thank you. Greg Creighton La Canada Flintridge Dear Greg: This fun salad gets its crunch factor from blanched Brussels sprouts leaves, which work well tossed with colorful dried cranberries and blueberries and toasted whole almonds.

Super Bowl Sunday is upon us. Maybe it's the only day that you deign to watch football, or maybe it marks the culmination of five months of blood, sweat and beers spent glued to the television out of devotion to your favorite team. Either way, it's the one day of the year that America comes together over a singularly American sports obsession, and as such it's a darn good reason to party. Sports bars and restaurants across the city will throw open their doors in a high-def blitz. Here are a few of our favorite options: -- The Bungalow, 101 Wilshire Blvd., Santa Monica.

Dear SOS: Please, please, please get me the recipe for the Brussels sprouts at Cleo in Hollywood. My husband and I ordered a variety of food at our dinner there, and the Brussels sprouts stole the show. I would love to get the recipe. It's the first time that my husband was actually excited to eat vegetables! Caroline Livengood Toluca Lake Dear Caroline: I've never had Brussels sprouts quite like this before. It's kind of like a salad - Brussels sprout leaves tossed with a tangy vinaigrette, capers and toasted almonds - except that the leaves are deep-fried first, giving the whole dish a surprising texture and crunch.

Tuxedomoon, at one time the darling of San Francisco's artsy neo-punk scene, moved to Brussels, Belgium, five years ago. Its first L.A. show since that move--Friday at Charley's Obsession--was more loony than lunar. Tuxedomoon's arty vaudeville featured pastoral and disturbing sound collages and drones, subterranean menace set to a beat.

  Dear Culinary SOS: On our trip to the Russian River earlier this month, we had a lot of amazing food. The dish we can't get out of our heads is the Brussels sprouts at boon eat + drink in Guerneville. Everyone in town sent us in to the restaurant to try these out, and now we know why. We still can't get over the incredible flavor and texture; they were outrageous. Please help us get the recipe for this. It would be perfect for holiday meals. Rebecca Sommer Pasadena Dear Rebecca: Delicately crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, boon's Brussels sprouts are served warm, tossed in a simple dressing with bright notes of lemon and just a touch of heat from red chile flakes.

During the holidays, when our cooking is often done without recipes, we home cooks often overlook the importance of relying on our senses to help us prepare a meal that consists of so many dishes. I'm talking about the sound that the gravy makes when it's cooked long enough in the bottom of the roasting pan. You can actually hear it bubble, calling to you that it's ready. Or using your nose to tell you when the turkey is ready.

What you think about Cortez is going to depend in large part on what you think about crowds, and noise, and screechy jazz, about well-meaning servers who are slightly impatient with the idea of service, and about spending most of an hour leaning up against a shoe box-narrow windowsill waiting for a seat to open up. If the idea of crashing a dinner party at the apartment of a friend of a friend sounds appealing, you're probably going to have a...

Although summer claims many of the sexiest, most attention-grabbing vegetables, such as eggplants, tomatoes, peppers and zucchini, in Southern California the vegetables that thrive in winter are equally abundant and alluring. Roots, crucifers and peas may be available year-round, but winter is their time to shine. In the spirit of the many award ceremonies held in this season, here are some of my favorite early winter vegetables and producers who do an extraordinary job with them, based on notes, photos and tastings over the last 14 years.

What am I cooking for Christmas dinner? Well a goose, of course, a fine, fat one, cooked in the Barbara Kafka way that involves high heat and an hour of resting in the cooling oven; and my mom's sweet-and-sour red cabbage; and blanched Brussels sprouts finished in hot fat. There will be no foie gras this year for the obvious reason, so there may be another pâté, something absurdly luxurious made from pheasant and juniper berries or some such....

It is Thanksgiving morning. As you read this, the bird, a fine 16-pounder, is coming to room temperature on the counter. The green beans have been topped and tailed, and my fingertips smart from peeling smoking-hot chestnuts for the stuffing. I've reminded my mother-in-law that she needn't bring the cranberry sauce - my cranberries are chilling in the refrigerator next to the bottles of Alsatian Riesling. I still have to blanch the Brussels sprouts, whip the cream and peel a mountain of potatoes, but I am locked into the rhythm of the day. My knife work is clumsy, and my soufflés may occasionally fall, but I know how to do this meal.

Blanch Brussels sprout leaves and they become tender enough to use in a salad. Combine them with dried fruit and nuts and dress the salad with a tangy mustard vinaigrette, as in this recipe from La Grande Orange in Pasadena, and you've got a perfect fall first course, as demonstrated in the video above by Test Kitchen manager Noelle Carter. You can find the recipe below. Brussels sprout salad is one of the favorite holiday recipes we've collected in our "Los Angeles Times Holiday Handbook.
