Ryan Bradley A native of Southern California, Bradley grew up in a landscape prone to fire. "I was raised in the foothills of Santa Barbara and have seen all the mountains that were the backdrop to my childhood go up in flames at one point or another," he says. This month, Bradley—who has written for The New York Times Magazine, GQ, WSJ, and Fortune—investigated the complicated dynamics between public and private firefighting agencies, as well as homeowners, “In the Line of Fire“ (p. 132). He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and their cat. Tom Williams Williams approaches the craft of photography like a master distiller. “I am a firm believer that boiling down concepts to simple visuals provides the most impact,” says the…

editor’s letter

Paul Croughton EDITOR IN CHIEF (JOSHUA SCOTT) One of the first things locals think of when talk turns to their home state—besides the weather, the beaches, the wine . . . —are the traffic jams. Californians’ relationship with their cars has for decades been one of both dependency and devotion. And if one vehicle had to symbolize that passion it would most likely be Porsche, which is as steeped into Californian folklore as surfboards and perpetual sunshine. Pop fact: The state accounts for a fifth of all Porsche orders globally. And while many own, drive, and treasure their personal rides, in this issue we set out to find the people who turn their level of dedication up to 11—the guys (it tends to be guys) who focus on…

objectified

Back in Black Ian Barry, founder of the Los Angeles–based Falcon Motorcycles, is crystal clear about his job description. “I translate raw power into elegant forms,” says the custom bike builder, “and then get to experience what that feels like at full throttle.” His 2011 Black Falcon, constructed from scratch save for the Vincent Black Shadow engine, was displayed at the Petersen Automotive Museum until last month and is now available for purchase for $800,000. Sweet SpotMargarita Manzke and her husband, Walter, have become acclaimed in LA for their outstanding restaurant République. While Walter handles the savory side, Margarita has mastered the sweet, with people lining up for her baked goods. Now she’s letting people in on some of her secrets, publishing her first cookbook, Baking at République, which…

the duel

It’s a rivalry with battle lines drawn long ago. Angelenos dismiss their NorCal counterparts as a mix of tech nerds and old hippies, while San Franciscans accuse SoCal folk of being vapid and silicone-filled. We look beyond the stereotypes to see how California’s most vibrant metropolises (sorry, San Diego) really stack up against each other. San Francisco VS. Los Angeles POPULATION 884,363 city; 4,727,357 metro 3,999,759 city; 13,353,907 metro WHO CAME FIRST Founded June 29, 1776 Founded September 4, 1781 TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS (49ers, 5; Giants, 3) 8 20 (Lakers, 11; Dodgers, 5; Kings, 2; Raiders, 1; Rams, 1) STRONGEST EARTHQUAKE (1906 Great San Francisco earthquake) 7.9 6.7 (1994 Northridge) HARDEST RESERVATION IN TOWN Che Fico Bavel ORIGINAL NAME Yerba Buena El Pueblo de…

the goods this month’s who, what, and wear tasting the field

DENMARK HAS René Redzepi, Brazil has Alex Atala, and South Africa has Kobus van der Merwe. You can be forgiven for not knowing that last one, but the chef behind Wolfgat (wolfgat.co.za), a 20-seat restaurant in the sleepy seaside village of Paternoster, a scenic two-hour drive from Cape Town, is about to be the next meal you hop a plane for. South Africa isn’t exactly new to the culinary scene—foodies are already well acquainted with stars Luke Dale-Roberts and Reuben Riffel—but van der Merwe is doing the country’s hyper-local food movement some real favors with his veldkos, a term that means “field food” in the Afrikaans language and refers to produce gathered in the wild. And his efforts are winning over admirers, as Wolfgat being crowned Restaurant of the…

nightshade’s bloomin’ onion

Chef van der Merwe serves sea lettuce, samphire, and other hyper-local ingredients at his Cape Dutch cottage Mei Lin didn’t exactly grow up in a culinary mecca. The chef-owner of LA’s recently opened Nightshade (nightshadela.com) was raised on big-chain cuisine—Applebee’s, Olive Garden, and the like—in her hometown of Dearborn, Mich. Though her palate has evolved considerably since, Lin is bringing a taste of nostalgia to her new restaurant with her bloomin’ onion, an upmarket homage to the kitschy appetizer that first appeared on the menu at Outback Steakhouse in the late ’80s. Her version—a Maui sweet onion dipped in buttermilk, dry dredged, and fried to a golden crisp—is a vehicle for Nightshade’s housemade tom yum seasoning featuring lemongrass, kaffir lime, and tamarind. The ode to suburban dining is surprisingly…
