Her site JancisRobinson.com -- "immoderately updated" -- contains thousands of her tasting notes, articles and comments. Some content is free, some reserved for subscribers. She seems to be everywhere at once, tasting, commenting, participating. The wine editor of Financial Times , she is also the author, co-author or editor of numerous serious wine books, including "The Oxford Companion to Wine ,” “ Jancis Robinson's Guide to Wine Grapes ” and most recently, “ American Wine .” Here's what she's drinking now: 2010 Bergström Cumberland Reserve Pinot Noir Willamette Valley in Oregon.

And the Lifetime Achievement award goes to...Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken. That would be the Elizabeth Burns Lifetime Achievement Award, to be exact, presented by the Los Angeles chapter of the California Restaurant Association at Hotel Casa del Mar on June 7th. Some 30 years ago Feniger and Milliken were the new kids on the block, cooking from a small storefront on Melrose Avenue next to the L.A. Eyeworks store. The two young cooks met in a tough French kitchen in Chicago at a time when a woman in a professional kitchen was still a rarity - and in a French kitchen practically unheard of. But the two stuck it out, formed a friendship and eventually ended up in Los Angeles.

It was a big job, but somebody had to do it, said editors at the Daily Meal . So they set out to recognize Asia 's top 101 restaurants. The list, which took six months to compile, includes restaurants in 25 cities. China topped the charts with 28 restaurants, 21 of them in Beijing. “Tackling Asia was a tremendous challenge for all kinds of reasons,” said Colman Andrews, editorial director for the Daily Meal, “but we felt we had to do it. "The number of superlative restaurants in that whole vast region is just extraordinary - Japan, remember, has more Michelin three-star places than France.” The list is part of a continuing series by the website, which earlier listed the “101 Best Restaurants in America” and "101 Best Restaurants in Europe.

Del Taco/Naugles Inc., the nation's second-largest Mexican-style fast-food chain, was acquired Thursday in a management buyout that threatens to resuscitate the taco war with rival Taco Bell.

China's recent construction of "fishermen shelters" in the Spratly Islands off the Philippine coast has heightened regional tensions and raised concerns in Southeast Asia that Beijing is seeking to expand its military influence. The increased Chinese activity in the strategic island chain was detected last month by Philippine reconnaissance planes.

New Paradise is the newest, flashiest restaurant along Long Beach's Anaheim Street, the vibrant center of Cambodian cultural life in Southern California. It's a giant pink palace that seats 400, the sort of room you'd find in one of the newer restaurants in Hong Kong (or Monterey Park), but it's dominated by an otherworldly back-lit mural of a tropical island. Owner Chheang Saing's first Long Beach restaurant, Peilin, was just a humble mom-and-pop setup.

"It's like working in a hotel," owner Stephanie Taupin says with a laugh. She and partner / general manager Adelmo Zarif leased the Rex Il Ristorante space in the Oviatt Building on South Olive Street last January.

Then, after the highly touted chef moves on, the place becomes just another good restaurant. Right now, 8-month-old NYC Seafood Restaurant in Monterey Park is always crowded, even on weeknights. Most parties are large, multi-generational families with nothing else in mind but to eat and eat well.
