Meeting the chefs of Los Angeles

  • Pin It
Those of you in southern California may care more about this than others, but read on and decide for yourself.

I've just started a big project: interviewing chefs, caterers, cookbook writers and other food folks who cook and work in Los Angeles. I'll be posting these profiles in a Q&A format, along with one recipe from each subject, on my LA Cooking Examiner site over the next month or so. I've got a great lineup, I think: personal chefs to the stars, a raw vegan goddess, big hotel chefs, small hotel chefs, TV chefs, chefs who are so committed to using local and farm-fresh ingredients that they spend half their time driving to the docks and the fields....You get the idea.

If you're so inclined, check out the first in the series, a conversation with Kevin Roberts, aka the Food Dude. His celebrity-tested recipe for hot wings is easy and healthier than most recipes involving chicken wings. And he's got quite a personality - which, I hope, shows through in our chat.

More L.A. food personalities to come....
