There’s artisanal cheese, small batch whiskeys, and heirloom watermelon— so why not fresh, free-range, acorn-fed pork?

This week, Eat LA tags along with a caterer who brings her food to the Occupy protestors in front of City Hall every Thursday. Then, writer Linda Burum breaks the big news, at last: raw, bellota iberico ham has arrived in Los Angeles! Finally, like so many plates of diner food, we finish off this week’s show with parsley: the ubiquitous, maligned green sprig most diners ignore. Off-Ramp host John Rabe talked parsley with chef Mark Peel, owner of Campanile and Tar Pit.
