It’s Party Time, Elysian Park Lovers!!

Elysian Park is my spirit place. I’ve taken to walking Marla June at 6:30 AM everyday. It’s a blessing on both of us. It’s a two and a half mile loop and it takes us an hour, door to door. It’s often the best part of my day.

It’s a magical place in the center of our fair city. My legs look so long there.

I’m super excited to be catering the Annual Banquet for

The Citizens Committee to Save Elysian Park.

I’ve been a little jealous, my Johnny gets to ride in the Echo Park Holiday Parade with his cabbage truck and the president’s dog. Lucky.

Now, I can do my part!

So friends…

The party is this Sunday!  And there’s music!  I’ve heard something about an  Oingo Boingo Person and a new band…


You can order your tickets old school by mailing Dan a  check, but they also have on line tickets available this year! YAY!

It’s going to be a big old Barbecue feast for omnivores that’s vegan friendly.

So maybe I’ll see you there? Elysian Park is the oldest park in Los Angeles.

If you feel like hanging out in the middle of it, listening to good music and eating well, come along and I’ll buy you a drink!

Look at my cute dog. Poser.

Broken Bread with Roy Choi 5.15.19

Ladies and gentlemen!

A round of applause for local native Roy Choi and his new KCET special on food justice in Los Angeles, Broken Bread.

I was lucky enough to attend the kick off party at The Wiltern last weekend.

The show is great, it inspires and it’s a call to action.

Roy has always been an excellent food advocate for a just and equal food system.

Here he is hanging with his team at the Mystery Lunch Box challenge.

He was one of my Chef coaches!  The kids didn’t know who he was back then in 2010, but they loved him up, made beautiful food and grew some pride.

The show starts tomorrow night on KCET.

It’s common practice for me to hang with the celebs, this being Hollywood and all.

Here’s my friend Jamie Oliver in a tomato suit.

Good times!

And while she’s no food advocate, she certainly is one of my sheroes!

MADONNA!  Does she look a little waxy?

Please give the show a look and learn.

We have a long way to go to heal this broken food system, and education is the first step.

Get involved!
