Yearning for Addis Ababa

Check today’s Calendar section in the LA Times for my article on the Little Ethiopia neighborhood along Fairfax Avenue!  I visited this enclave several times in the past month while researching the Times piece and a feature for Singular Magazine, which is coming soon.  It’s an incredibly special little ‘hood.  The people radiate warmth and the food radiates spice in equal measure.  Chef Genet Agonafer of Meals by Genet invited me into her kitchen as if I were family to taste a bite of her soul-nourishing dorowat (chicken stewed in red pepper sauce).  Staci Cain, who reupholsters vintage furniture with a global vibe at 45 Three Modern Vintage, shared the stories of her most special pieces.  The scents of coffee and incense had me yearning for a journey to Addis Ababa.
