Santa Cruz dining scene shakes off its college town image. When Andrea Nguyen, noted Asian culinary expert and cookbook author, left Los Angeles for Santa Cruz County 19 years ago, she was surprised to encounter a rather dispirited food scene.

Santa Cruz dining scene shakes off its college town image

Despite local farmers’ markets carrying the most vibrant of produce, the dining landscape was lackluster, dominated by the frozen, the fried and far too many flabby clam chowders. But thankfully, times have changed — in the most delicious of ways. Nguyen, who moved to Santa Cruz in 1998 when her husband, Rory O’Brien, became a political science professor at Cabrillo College in Aptos, has witnessed this beach town grow into a true dining destination. New restaurants and purveyors have invigorated the area, thanks in part, she believes, to chef Kendra Baker opening the artisan Penny Ice Creamery in 2010. “She brought a higher caliber of food and service to this town, which needed enlightening and enlivening,’’ says Nguyen, 48.

My mom's lasagne and spaghetti aside, my first memories of "Italian" food were at the Depot restaurant in Napa.

Malfatti Recipe - Delicious Techniques

Opened in 1925 by Teresa Tamburelli, the Depot was a Napa Valley institution for generations, until it closed in 2004. For me, the appeal was always more about the vintage atmosphere than for the food, but there was one exception: the Depot's malfatti in a rich veal sugo. On weekends and around the holidays, it wasn't unusual to see Napans lined up outside the kitchen door with pots and pans from home to pick up an order of the classic to go. While many that grew up on the Depot's Malfatti believed it was created by Tamburelli in the 1930's, it's actually a dish that has roots in Italy. Malfatti literally means "poorly made" in Italian, and while the shape may be irregular, the there's nothing poor about the taste. Rich, tender and savory, Malfatti is like a more flavorful gnocchi with rustic charm. Ingredients For malfatti 320 grams Ricotta cheese (~1 1/3 cup) 60 grams 50 grams Steps.

Yale Researchers Study Life-Extending Hormone - Health & Science - September 2016

All photos by Arnold Gold unless otherwise noted. The mice at the Yale lab in New Haven were different. Most mice start showing signs of aging by 2 years old. These mice didn’t. In a laboratory setting, regular mice would have a life expectancy of around three years, but these mice lived much longer, almost four years. Their secret was not a gluten-free diet, or lots of protein, but rather a hormone called fibroblast growth factor-21 (FGF21) that has an extraordinary effect on the immune system. Beginning in 2007, Vishwa Deep Dixit, professor of comparative medicine and immunobiology at Yale School of Medicine, and a team of researchers at his lab began studying the hormone and its effects on mice genetically engineered to produce more of it.
