FACES: Amelia Saltsman and JoAnn Cianciulli

This month's FACES interview on LA.com was a very special entry in the series because, for the first time, I talked to two Los Angeles foodie luminaries at once: Amelia Saltsman and JoAnn Cianciulli.

Saltsman is the author of the Santa Monica Farmers' Market Cookbook, which was just selected by the Library of Congress to be translated into Braille.

JoAnn recently wrote the L.A.'s Original Farmers Market Cookbook just in time for the Farmers Market's 75th anniversary.

Both ladies are passionate, articulate, intelligent, funny and thoughtful about just what it is that makes Los Angeles' farmers markets so special, and what each of us can do to make sure we are eating the best foods possible. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as I enjoyed conducting and then writing it.
