Find Your True Fork Dinner Series

My good friend Jeff Krasno, the founder of the Wanderlust Festival, reached out to me last year to ask if I would contribute to a book he was putting together to help people find a path with food that worked best for them. I was super excited to collaborate with a great roster of chefs and wellness authorities, and in July we published a beautiful book of recipes called Find Your True Fork.

As part of the book launch we thought it would be fun to host a dinner featuring recipes from the book at the Wanderlust Cafe in Hollywood, a venue I helped open a few years ago. On June 29th we had an amazing dinner with tons of friends, including my dear friend Ellen Bennett, founder of the apron company Hedley & Bennett. Ellen is one of the most ebullient, fun-loving people I know and within moments of entering the kitchen she jumped in the mix and helped me crank out dinner. Here’s a peak at the menu, all of the recipes are from my chapter in the book:



Bitter leaves with persimmon and hazelnut vinaigrette

Chicken and shitake soup with sea weed and okra

Mixed Radish Salad

Endives Stuffed with Goat Cheese, Strawberries & Walnuts

Asparagus Salad with Egg & Jambon de Bayonne

Grilled Lamb Chops with Anchovy-Walnut Chimichurri

Dark chocolate and coconut mousse
