I first heard about Clara Polito of Clara Cakes when she was 12-years-old, selling her vegan sweets at punk show venues like The Smell, where Edie Sedgwick once played.
It’s not pizza, but I found a gluten-free focaccia that is as good as the real thing. It’s at Di Alba in Downtown Los Angeles, which is related to The Smile in NYC, but has a completely different look, feel, and concept.
I’ve been super into my health lately. Ever since finding out I have a gluten-sensitivity (which I’m finding may also be a sugar one) I’ve been really careful about what’s going into my body.
In the early 90’s, Broadway was very important to me. Thus, Daisy Eagan was a huge deal. She is the youngest actress to win a Tony Award for The Secret Garden, and I was really excited to see her in HBO’S GIRLS recently, playing the film version of Lena Dunham.
