"No. Not that either.” Like a petulant teenager, I reply with silence, sliding my phone into my purse on the floorboard and fastening my seatbelt. "This can be violent. Ready?” I look over skeptically at Johnny Kanavas, chief instructor at the Porsche Experience Center in Carson. But as he...

Las Vegas Weekly
It’s 4:30 a.m., and chef Jaret Blinn is wide awake and ready to put me to work. It’s a typical morning for the CraftKitchen owner, except that I’m here for a behind-the-scenes look at the bakery—specifically the journey each pastry makes before it gets to the customer’s plate.
