If you’re in Los Angeles on June 1st make sure you go enjoy a special pop-up brunch prepared by actual brothers Jason & Chris Stewart at the Underground Gallery. The menu includes some really interesting stuff like Spam Musubi, Crispy Lentil Hash and Fried Snapper Soft Scramble. I asked the bros a few questions about cooking together, developing a menu and opening a restaurant. They were also kind enough to share the recipe for the Stewtella & Pear Panini with whipped honey-thyme ricotta, which you can find below.

Did you guys cook a lot together growing up?
We didn’t cook together that much until high school, we were both vegan at the time, and we’d have our friends come over and cook veggie burgers and tater rots while we watched Martin Lawrence stand up DVDs.
The menu looks great. Which dish was the most difficult to develop?
Thanks! The most difficult dish to develop was probably the musubi. It’s a super simple dish but you really want to get the sushi rice just right, it takes chefs years to perfect their sushi rice, I’m still improving every time, thanks to some help from actual chefs and Japanese friends.
Should we expect to see a proper restaurant from you guys in the future?
We were originally planning on opening a proper restaurant, but since this is our first venture we wanted to pump the brakes a bit and start slow, give us a chance to make mistakes and figure out exactly what we want to do before making that huge leap.

A bunch of great shows happening this weekend including Richard Colman’s Noise which opens tonight at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen.
We go east to west rounding up some notable shows opening this weekend.
For this installment of “Artist Eats,” we asked Camille Rose Garcia to share her favorite place to eat. Camille is a Los Angeles-based artist whose “layered, broken narrative paintings of wasteland fairy tales are influenced by William Burroughs’ cut-up writings and surrealist film, as well as vintage Disney and Fleischer cartoons, acting as critical commentaries on the failures of capitalist utopias, blending nostalgic pop culture references with a satirical slant on modern society.” Continue reading for her answer.
Angela Boatwright documents youth culture in this 4-part film series for Vans’ new #livingoffthewall project.
We featured Patrick Lee’s Deadly Friends earlier this month, and the Los Angeles-based artist is back again with an edition available from the Deadly Friends series as part of Printed Matter’s 2014 LA Art Book Fair fundraiser editions. Available at the opening of the fair this Thursday (1/30), the skateboard edition will be on view along with other benefit artworks from Laura Owens, Jeremy Deller, and Parra at Printer Matter’s booth.

His most successful works have been the paintings featuring oversized, three-dimensional text painstakingly integrated into vintage landscape reproductions. Continue reading for his answer.
For this installment of “Artist Eats,” we asked AJ Fosik to share his favorite place to eat. AJ was born and raised in Detroit, and now makes intricately designed wood animal sculptures and paintings, which intrigue and provoke.
“I like hot dogs,” AJ says. “The hot dog is egalitarian, quintessentially American and unlike it’s cousin the hamburger, it’s impossible to make a pretentious one. Here is a list of my favorite hot dog places (in no particular order) and what I order.”

Named BurritoBox, this on-demand burrito dispenser is a dream come true for the impatient glutton that lies deep inside you.
For this installment of “Artist Eats,” we asked Michael C. Hsiung to share his favorite place to eat. Michael is a Los Angeles-based artist known for his black-and-white pen and ink drawings. His work features a range of “strangely rotund characters from fantastical creatures, such as centaurs and mermen, to somewhat contemporary and/or old fashion bearded males” often celebrating, imbibing and rabblerousing.
