Every Saturday morning for most of my life, it has been the sweet, lingering smell of fresh-baked bread, rather than an alarm clock, that has lulled me out of a drowsy haze and brought me gently back to reality. In a ritual initiated by my dad, the piping-hot baked dough wrapped in a simple paper bag and delicately decorated with sesame seeds found a way home with him before ending up on the kitchen table, where its aroma swirled around the house until it found and awakened me. It was devoured almost immediately, while the loaf of toast routinely used during the week for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that ended up in lunch boxes remained untouched.

Glendale Memorial Hospital employees brought holiday cheer to many of their patients Friday as they carried out their annual Armenian Christmas celebration of delivering sweet gata bread and holiday wishes room to room. Armenian Christmas, which is celebrated today, is one of the many cultural holidays recognized at the hospital in its aim to focus on diversity, said Ramella Markarian, patient representative of the hospital's quality management department. "Here at Glendale Memorial Hospital we respect all cultures, and not only are we concerned about our patients' physical well being, but also their spiritual well-being," she said.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — The smell of freshly baked bread wafts around Millbrook Bakery on San Fernando Road, but it won’t for long. That smell — and about 570 jobs — are slated to be eliminated in October, when the bakery, which produces Wonder Bread, is set to close up shop, company spokeswoman Maya Pagoda said. The bakery is one of four Southern California bakeries owned by Kansas City-based Interstate Bakery Corp. that are slated to close. Interstate has been operating under Chapter 11 bankruptcy since 2004, and the move is part of an effort to bring the struggling company back into the black, Pagoda said.

Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- Santa's helpers went back to work on Friday to deliver a few more Christmas presents and brighten up the holiday for patients at Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center. Wearing Santa hats, student volunteers brought good wishes and loaves of raisin bread to dozens of Armenian patients on the day that many people around the world recognize Christmas Eve. The Armenian Apostolic Church and others celebrate Christmas on Jan. 6, following a tradition older than that of observing the holiday on Dec. 25. Eliza Derderian of Arleta was lying in bed next to her 2-day-old daughter, Lara, when her braided loaf arrived.

Gretchen Hoffman As many residents headed to area churches in observance of Epiphany, patients at Glendale Memorial Hospital celebrated in a different way -- with traditional Armenian bread. Hospital staff passed out 200 loaves of the sesame-and-raisin bread to brighten up Armenian Christmas, which was Monday. Observing Christmas on Jan. 6 is a tradition older than that of celebrating on Dec. 25; the Roman Catholic Church changed the date of the celebration in the 4th century to distance it from pagan holidays.

Once in a while, you come across a restaurant you want to tell all your friends about. Lunchbox is just such a place. It’s a casual little restaurant tucked away in the alley behind the Exchange near the bronze Ben Franklin statue, so it’s no surprise that, even though it’s been there since June, I just found it. I recommend you find it too. The food is great and the prices are even better. Their motto at Lunchbox is “darn good food.” And they speak the truth.

Mgredich Torossian was on his way out of Glendale Memorial Hospital and Health Center on Friday morning when he noticed one of the hospital chaplains blessing three carts full of Armenian sweet bread in the building’s lobby. He stopped to listen to Deacon Tigran Garibjanyan say the Lord’s Prayer in Armenian, and then he picked up a loaf of the Armenian gata bread that the hospital was giving out in celebration of Armenian Christmas, which is Sunday. It was good to see the hospital recognizing the Armenian holiday, Torossian said in Armenian, with hospital employee Ramella Markarian translating.

maggazinosThere's a little out-of-the-way, jewel of a sandwich shop on Pass Avenue that's easy to miss if you're not looking for it. Studio Caffé Magazzino is a small, intimate space with a funky country décor and a passion for healthy and uncomplicated fare. Before the 4th Earl of Sandwich popularized the dish that bears his name, a sandwich was merely known as "bread and meat" or "bread and cheese." The popularity of sandwiches really took off once bakeries began selling sliced bread in the early 1900s.

The election is over. We the people had our say. And Chuck Norris' prognosticated “1,000 Years of Darkness” has begun. Or it's simply the end of daylight saving time. So now that that's over with, let's get to a debate that truly matters, one I know you've been eagerly awaiting, a vote that will impact your life more than which president's picture you'll be throwing darts at for the next four years: Who makes a better sub sandwich? Mario's Deli in Glendale? Or the Handy Market in Burbank?

Going to Panera Bread in Glendale is like putting on your favorite jacket on a chilly autumn day. It?s warm, it goes with everything, and you feel good wearing it. You can trust that a meal at Panera will be comforting and good for you, the ambience will be warm and welcoming, and the experience will be relatively painless (sometimes, in life, the zipper does get stuck). Panera is a little like a modern cafeteria in that you order your food in one area and have it delivered in another.

The Redevelopment Agency on Tuesday will consider approving a sign variance for the new location of the restaurant Panera Bread, at 300 N. Brand Blvd. The variance, one of several the restaurant has had to procure, would allow for a mural, which is larger than what would normally be allowed for the California Avenue frontage. In the past few weeks, the restaurant has been obtaining variances for its signage and a proposed 10-by-70-foot wall mural to prepare for its opening. Construction at the corner site has been ongoing for weeks, and recently construction crews removed materials blocking the revamped store from public view, revealing a nearly completed interior.

As I approached the entrance to the Zaatar Factory in Burbank, I noticed this flier posted on the glass door: The question on everyone?s mind is, ?What in the world is Zaatar?? Zaatar is a Middle Eastern spice blend generally prepared using ground dried thyme, oregano and marjoram (an herb with a sweet pine and citrus flavor) mixed with toasted sesame seeds and salt. Now you may find yourself asking, ?What?s sooooo special about this so-called Zaatar?? Zaatar is the ?

City officials and downtown merchants are celebrating next year’s anticipated Glendale move by Panera Bread, hoping the Midwest-based eatery helps revitalize a portion of the city plagued in part by vacant storefronts. The city’s Redevelopment Agency on Dec. 2 approved a 39-space parking exception for the restaurant at 300 N. Brand Blvd., and officials on Wednesday said they expect the site to open by summer. “We are very pleased to see one of these large faces occupied and appreciate the confidence, even in what’s not the greatest of times, of a new merchant on the block,” said Eric Olson, vice president of the Downtown Glendale Merchants Assn.

A collaboration between the Armenian National Committee Glendale Chapter and Freedom Baking Inc. — in which 5% of sales from Shushan Lavash bread goes to the local advocacy group — continues through April 30 as a way to fund future efforts to educate the public about the Armenian Genocide. The two parties announced the partnership, which kicked off Monday, in late March as a way to ensure that educational activities — like forums, internship programs and outreach efforts — continue.
