At David Padilla and Maria Ramos' Oaxacan restaurant Gish Bac, the weekends are made for goat and lamb barbecue. A third-generation barbacoa specialist, Ramos began learning the trade of goat and lamb barbecue as a 10-year-old in Oaxaca's Sunday market in Tlacolula β€” one of Mexico's longest-running markets β€” where her family still operates a stand. The couple came to Los Angeles in 1992 and immediately began catering private events. This went on until a year ago, when a growing chorus of requests from attendees at these gatherings demanded more regular access to Ramos' barbacoa . Padilla and Ramos found a restaurant location in the heart of Mid-City, and Gish Bac (roughly, "from Tlacolula")

The coming holiday of Easter is a time when a cook needs a good butcher's advice. In these days of packaged meat and automated sales help, it is harder to find a butcher willing to dispense wisdom about cuts of meat in a supermarket. My advice is to buy a good book on the subject. And learn, once and for all, whether the cut of lamb in the display case is a saddle, chuck or bracelet. More important, what is the difference in price and cooking time?

There's more to Oktoberfest than sausages and suds. Stuff like couscous, rabbit tagine, and lamb mechoui , for example. Farid Zadi, chef and owner of Spanish Fly Gastropub is holding his second annual Couscousfest/Oktoberfest celebration Saturday and Sunday, featuring North African street food, Algerian cold drinks and craft beers. β€œThe first annual Couscous Festival in Pasadena was a bit nerve-racking, since we didn't really know what to expect in terms of crowd turnout or appetite for more exotic North African dishes,” Zadi wrote in a press release.

I'm thrilled the paper chose to put a "vegetarian" section in last Thursday (Aug. 15). However, I was shocked to read at the bottom of your article that you suggested a dish to be served with roast lamb or veal. One doesn't need meat to complement a meal, especially since the whole article dealt with vegetarian food; but even more surprising is to suggest a meal complement that is the inhumanely treated animal--a veal calf! And coincidentally, the lamb has the second slowest tortuous death.

A new oven is being billed as the greatest invention since the discovery of fire itself. This high-tech contraption, seemingly a cross between a furnace and a microwave, allegedly can roast a whole rack of lamb in 6 1/2 minutes flat. Which sounds impressive if all you want is chops on the table in less time than you would need to set it. If you want an almost transcendental experience, though, the only route is low and slow, no special equipment required.

Regarding "The Gastro Economist: Glendale, the Kebab's Home Away From Home" [March 13]: One you didn't include is Elena's Greek Armenian Cuisine on Glendale Boulevard, which serves mouth-watering lamb kebab plates under 10 bucks. An added bonus is the taped Greek and Armenian music playing in the background. David Tulanian Los Angeles

I opened a bottle of Atalayas de Golban the other night to have with a rack of lamb. The combination of Tinto Fino (the local Tempranillo) and lamb is classic and sublime. And this Ribera del Duero from Madrid wine merchant Miguel Sanchez and winemaker Bertrand Sourdais is a beauty. The grapes come from Sanchez's second property, Atalayas de Golban (his first is Dominio de Atauta -- famous and much more expensive). Atalayas comes in at a terrific price for such a graceful and irresistible Ribera del Duero.

When I tasted this wine and then looked at the price, the two didn't match up. This gorgeous and elegant red from Terra de Verema in the Vilella Baixa del Priorat region of Spain could easily cost twice the price. Instead, for about $30, you get a stunning Carinyena (Carignan) with a touch of Garnacha and Syrah. Spicy and lush, the 2006 Triumvirat is beautifully balanced, even elegant. And it's smooth as silk, almost Burgundian in style.

It is a rule of thumb in Los Angeles that any restaurant you want to go to is 20 minutes from where you are now. Tack on another 5 or 10 minutes and you could find yourself at the southern end of the Harbor Freeway in the '50s time warp of San Pedro, a small Midwestern town that has somehow found itself next to a harbor full of huge freighters. Down what looks like Main Street on your right is Papadakis Taverna.

Robert Scheer's Feb. 8 commentary, "Why Was Lee Indicted, and Not Deutch?" reconfirmed what our organization has said all along. When Wen Ho Lee was arrested and indicted last October, the Chinese American Civil Rights Organization cautioned the government that Lee should be treated on the principle of equality and that the government must thoroughly investigate and prosecute with equal diligence anyone found to have committed similar crimes as Lee...
