  • World Cup soccer ball buns at Rockenwagner, olive oil martinis at Dominick's

    The World Cup is well underway, and some fans may be looking for ways to celebrate with food. Baker and restaurateur Hans Rockenwagner has created a special World Cup burger for foodie fans, and it includes a soccer ball bun.

    You can also purchase a pack of three of the soccer ball brioche buns at Rockenwagner locations and Gelson’s for $3.79. And if you’re looking to catch a game while you eat your burger, Cafe Rockenwagner has brought in a 60-inch flat-screen TV.

    Dominick’s in West Hollywood is easing into the culinary cocktail scene with a new olive oil cocktail. Head bartender Gracy Ramirez created the Dom’s Caprese Martini ($12).

    It’s made with olive oil-infused Green Mark vodka, Dolin Dry vermouth, tomato water and an atomized spray of aged balsamic vinegar. A basil leaf and mini mozzarella ball serve as the garnish.

    The cocktail is available at Dominick’s for a limited time. 8715 Beverly Boulevard, West Hollywood.

  • California Olive Growers Concerned Drought Plan May Allow Fly Infestation To Worsen

    Olive growers are facing a big threat in the form of a tiny fruit fly that could end some olive oil production.

    To make matters worse, they say an offer from an irrigation district to help families save money is instead backfiring and making the infestation worse.

    Richard Wolf is happy to see as many olives as are in his trees currently, but it’s not guarantee the olive fruit fly won’t hit his crop again.

    “We had 40 percent less oil production last year,’ he said. Others were hit worse, losing their entire crop.
