There is a choice group of dishes from restaurants that have left an indelible mark on the Los Angeles culinary scene. They are dishes you would drop a date with a best friend to taste. They are dishes with an illustrious past and bright future. They possess a bold character and unmistakable charm--along, of course, with exceptional flavor. They have survived the test of time. They are, in fact, a class unto themselves, defying description. Each dish stands on its own, as proud of having originated in a diner as in a chi-chi bistro.

On Today's KTLA-TV Consumer Confidential segment, we looked at food-stamp use hitting a record high, with California claiming the largest number of recipients. A sign, as the GOP says, of economic ruin? Or a sign, as Democrats say, that the government is needed to help out when times are tough? We also take a gander at the new Nokia smartphones featuring Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system, and a marketing program that can result in a year of mortgage payments being made on your behalf.

As you survey the remains of your Thanksgiving meal, you might want to give a thought to those who are having trouble putting food on the table because of the lousy economy and high unemployment rate. You can make a difference. From food drives to volunteering to help at a food pantry, this is a great time of year to think about giving along with all the seasonal consuming. "Donating a bag of food can go a long way toward helping families who are living paycheck to paycheck," said Michael Flood, president of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, which distributes more than 1 million pounds of commodities each week, the equivalent of about 770,000 meals.

The L.A. Times Food section published almost 300 recipes in 2010 — more than most cookbooks. All of them were thoroughly reviewed in our test kitchen, often several times, before they ever saw print. We test and test and test until we're sure the recipe is as good as it can be, and that it's written clearly enough for any cook to understand. It's a lot of work, but in the end it's what gives us recipes that you can rely on. Still, even though we treat all of our recipes equally, inevitably there are some that we love more than others.

IT was bound to happen sooner or later; I suppose the only wonder is that it took so long. After dinner a couple of weeks ago, a friend asked me for a cup of coffee. And that's when I realized I had no earthly idea how to make one. I'm 51 years old and I've been cooking seriously for more than 25 years. I've written two cookbooks. I can make fresh pasta fine as a silk scarf and a consomme that sparkles like a mountain stream. Yet I didn't know how to make a really good cup of coffee.

For 42 students from Italy, summer English classes at Cal State Los Angeles were academically challenging. But just as important, they said, were off-campus adventures to learn about American culture: riding buses, touring movie studios, partying at nightclubs and eating at In-N-Out Burger. "I'd like to experience life as real Americans do," said Luca Pedrotti, 23, who was enrolled in the Italian Summer Program at the Eastside campus. "This is what I'm looking for, to live true Los Angeles life."
