A Tasty Break: The Sea Salt Workshop at Terranea Resort

I’ve been spending a lot of time experimenting with sea salt lately. Grilling fish with Meyer-lemon infused salt, adding a pinch of rosemary salt to pinto beans, making a vinaigrette with a smoked sea salt, sprinkling fruit or popcorn with dashes of this or that. A few weeks ago I took the Sea Salt Workshop at the Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes. Held the first Saturday of every month, at a cost of $70 per person, the workshops are led by the resort’s chefs.

Anaheim Marriott Reveals Solar System

The Anaheim Marriott, which recently made a major investment in renewable energy, just activated a solar system in three portions of its hotel roof that currently fuels about one-third of the property’s 1,030 guest rooms.

The installation at Anaheim Marriott was implemented in partnership with SoCore Energy. The new system features 1,805 solar modules and is projected to produce 880,000 kilowatt hours of power per year. By having this new energy source, it reduces the hotel’s energy consumption equal to the elimination of a year’s greenhouse gas emissions from 131 vehicles.
