Q&A with Karla (aka Lala Sophia), Owner

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

We offer handmade, fresh gourmet baked goods using the highest quality ingredients. We specialize in desserts such as pies, tarts, cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and bars. We also bake various breads and rolls. Custom cakes and chocolates are available by special order.

What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared?

We actually have two very popular items. Our jalape?o cheddar artisan rolls are made completely by hand, and our chocolate chip black walnut cookies and bars are made with the richest, highest quality chocolate and real black walnuts.

Do you use any family recipes at your restaurant? Whose family do they belong to?

I developed all of our recipes. I'm self-taught, and I've been cooking and baking since childhood. I'm also a lacto-ovo vegetarian, so all of our recipes are vegetarian friendly. That means all of our ingredients are free from animal rennet and animal-derived gelatin. I also strive to support local business, so we source our ingredients locally whenever possible.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We welcome comments and questions from our customers. Please feel free to call us or use the contact form on our website. We will definitely respond.

National Bartenders School, Covina helps its graduates land not a single job, but an entire lifetime of work. Alumni can return to the school for unlimited refresher courses and job-placement aid. First, however, they must earn their bartending degree, mastering the art of crafting, garnishing, and presenting more than 200 cocktails through classes and hours of solo practice. The instructors’ state-approved courses cover traditional bartending and flair bartending, which hinges on tricks such as juggling bottles or igniting shots with a to-scale model sun.

Eddie's Pizzeria & Eatery answers an ancient culinary dilemma: do we go out for pizza or stay in for Mom's meatloaf? Serving New World fare, the restaurant satisfies cravings in a single sweep. Even its pizzas champion this culinary marriage—New York–style pies arrive speckled with traditional toppings as well as premium options, such as rosemary ham. Yet, despite such culinary fusion, the pies never lose sight of their roots. Margherita pizza recalls the dish’s Italian heritage, whereas a 10-inch gourmet Bada Bing represents pizza’s modern stomping grounds with sausage, gorgonzola, and a mini “I Heart NY” shirt.

The menu also explores a large landscape of pasta entrees, from four-cheese ravioli to penne sautéed with mushrooms in a tomato-cream sauce. Meatier plates continue to span continents, with chicken parmesan prepped near st. louis ribs and handcrafted Angus burgers. As patrons strip tangy wings bare, they can watch the venue's eight televisions, two of which boast 70-inch HD screens.

Chianti’s Risorante has some of the most delicious, most authentically prepared Italian food in Rancho Cucamonga. Mouthwatering dishes served to the backdrop of beautiful Italian music makes Chianti’s a wonderful place for a date or anniversary celebration. Chianti’s cuisine includes elements from both the North and South of Italy, expanding the selection considerably from other restaurants, which opt for one locale or the other. The warm shades of the dark wood countertops when illuminated by the traditional incandescent lighting and the gargantuan classic oil paintings lend Chianti’s an air of friendliness and hospitality.

Q&A with Valerie Moore, Owner/culinary Artist

What sets your business apart from your competition?

My business is one of only a few unique to Southern California that provide in-home instruction and demonstration cooking parties. Our menus include recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. We offer a menu that ranges from comfort Soul Food to Thai Food with a twist.

What was the inspiration for starting this business?

I decided to start this business after completing my cookbook titled _The Dish, which is a collection of short stories and recipes that speak to how I came about developing and obtaining some of the family favorites. Completing the cookbook made me realize how great it would be to share the recipes with a live audience participating._

What?s your favorite part about your job?

The opportunity to create meals for people who enjoy the art of cooking, and to meet and make great friends.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

We like to tailor our menus to satisfy the client's desired atmosphere. We interview the client about their intended guests and the vibe they would like to create for the special event.

With pewter chandeliers, high ceilings, and crisp white booths and tablecloths, Opera establishes its sense of style before patrons even sit down. The space blends ultra-modern sensibilities with a tinge of old-world flair, hinting at an eclecticism that also informs the menu. Here, lunches and dinners can be inventive or familiar; casual or meticulous; served on a plate or served trailing behind a paper airplane flung from the kitchen. Cooks can do everything from prepare a simple spaghetti with homemade meatballs to elevate pan-fried sole with nut butter, field mushrooms, and freshly squeezed lemon juice. And they don't just stick to Italian cuisine, either?they also prepare Spanish paella and even gourmet tacos. This diverse approach applies to the dessert menu, as well. Customers can conclude their meal with the likes of classic American apple pie, Italian tiramisu, English bread pudding, or French cr?me br?l?e.
