Feastly talents know no bounds, so we’re celebrating our chefs’ accomplishments with this hall of fame. From Asian noodle soups and family-style Filipino to gourmet burgers and handmade pasta, here are some of the best performances from last year in LA.
Farming Hope’s mission is to build “a bridge out of homelessness,” empowering individuals through urban farming and cooking while “turning the soup kitchen on its head.”
Veteran restaurant chef Jason Fullilove graduates from pop-up to brick-and-mortar.
This gorgeous, layered cheesecake is bursting with summer flavors – Meyer lemon, blueberry, and lavender. It’s entirely plant-based and also raw, making it as impressive as it is delicious.
These simple “quickles” are the perfect way to infuse your next meal with a little Korean flair. Made from shiitake mushrooms, these “umami bombs” have a satisfying chewy texture, a slightly tangy taste, and huge depth of flavor. Serve them among other banchan, like kimchi, daikon pickles, and stir-fried fish cakes.
Jocelyn Ramirez is a Southeast Los Angeles native and the chef/founder of Todo Verde, a roving Latin American plant-based kitchen providing Los Angeles with healthy and affordable vegan eats. We sat down with her to talk about the perceived challenges of vegan Mexican cuisine, how food can be a catalyst for social change, and how agua frescas started it all.
Chef Ed Sablan is the chef/owner of Portland’s popular food cart, PDX671, an homage to the food of his Guamanian home. Ed recently started hosting pop-up dinners with Feastly Portland, and he’s been dazzling diners with his expertly grilled meat and vegetable dishes. Want to see the master at work?
Chermoula, a North African sauce traditionally paired with grilled seafood, has many variations. This one is a lighter, green version as opposed to the red variety that often contains a lot of chili peppers and paprika. It’s garlicky, lemony, and herbaceous notes make it perfect as a marinade, in dressings, or alone as a simple condiment. Try it on vegetables and tofu! I use it on savory grilled portobello mushrooms at my Moroccan-themed pop-up dinners. It’s also an extremely simple recipe – just grab your herbs and your food processor!
Zucchini noodles, or “zoodles,” are a common and healthy alternative to traditional pasta. Use a Spiralizer or a stand mixer attachment to make them, and then experiment with spiralizing sweet potatoes, apples, and other types of produce!
A warm welcome from Feastly.
