Raw Desert Honey from the Pahrump Honey Company

Rich amber in color and deeply sweet is PHC’s finest thanks to bees working the Great Basin Desert, collecting nectar and pollen from desert plants such as yucca, mesquite, wild flowers, orchards and alfalfa fields. Sample first—always fun—at the Fresh 52 Farmers & Artisan Market (Fresh52.com) on Saturdays at Tivoli Village (Rampart Boulevard and Alta Drive) and Sundays at Sansone Park Place (9480 S. Eastern Ave.). 12 ounces for $15, PahrumpHoneyCompany.com.

Tapas Without Borders

By Max Jacobson

Beso, Eva Longoria’s dramatically designed restaurant at the edge of Crystals mall in CityCenter, has been largely ignored by the food press. So I decided to take a look, and was pleasantly surprised by what I discovered. Advertisements refer to it as a steak house and, indeed, the Harris Ranch Beef served here is great. I tried the 16-ounce filet and the 22-ounce bone-in rib-eye, charred medium-rare, and both were flavorful, tender and juicy. The massive Harris Ranch is on Interstate 5 in central California. You smell it before you see it, if you drive by.
