Members of the school's student council on Tuesday traveled with their parents to Duarte to present 10 cases, filled with foil-wrapped chocolate rabbits and eggs, to Judy Frazier, the hospital's director of volunteer services. The chocolates will be distributed among the hospital's inpatients and outpatients, said Frazier, who was overwhelmed by the school's generosity.

Global food giant Nestle S.A., with North American headquarters in Glendale, reported gains in the first fiscal quarter despite difficulties with supplies in chocolate-producing West Africa and sales in Japan, which was ravaged by the earthquake and tsunami late in the quarter. Nestle reported revenue growth of 6.4% in the quarter compared to the same period last year.

OK. That was fun. Just celebrating its one-year anniversary in Glendale, the Korean-owned Paris Baguette is a self-serve purveyor of joy. Now that I’m a grown-up, I don’t enjoy being a kid in a candy store so much as being a parent in a pastry shop! When we walked in, we each grabbed a square tray and a set of tongs. I told my kids to grab just about anything that they thought sounded good to sample and share with family that evening. We sampled sweet and savory, standard and exotic, pastry and tea cakes and bread.

Can a restaurant that's been open for just one month already have a loyal customer base and an established signature dish -- cioppino? Yes, but only if the grand opening is preceded by more than 20 years of serving Italian favorites. Such is the case with Davio's Italian Grill, which opened last month in the Target/Pavilions Center after flourishing for two decades in LSeal Beach. The "new" Davio's has been designed masterfully. The caramel-and-burnt-orange color scheme smoothly commingles with neutral woods and funky light fixtures to create a feel of contemporary cool.

The greatest charm of the Stepping Stone Players' most recent production, "Willy Wonka," lies in its outstanding mixed cast of children and adults. Eleven-year-old Austin Kelly as our hero — sweet, decent, chocolate-loving Charlie Bucket, is a triple threat — able to act, sing and fly 20 feet into the air, all at the same time. Allan Hunt, so memorable as the Wizard in last year's Stepping Stone production of "The Wizard of Oz," holds his own as Charlie's Grandpa Joe, competing with five small scene-stealers — if you don't count the three dozen or so children who either sing and dance as Towns Kids, or as Oompa Loompas.
