Arts District, Los Angeles Downtown
Banquet (20+ Guests)
north african, italian, californian
Hi! This meal is special because it is my first private dinner that will be completely curated by me! I have put a lot of my heart and soul into making this menu and creating an experience you will want to come back to. S.A.S.S. stands for my siblings and me. Our first initials. The love I feel for them is embodied in this dinner. My flavors come from Morocco, Spain, Italy, and, of course, I have a California farmers market focus. My food will surprise you. Come dine with me to find out!
This punch will be concocted by my dear friend, Selena. All I can say is, bubbles will be flowing! We all know I'm going to need a drink before we get started!
Puffed Brown Rice Cracker, Trout Roe, Whipped Creme Fraiche, Beet Pickled Sauerkraut
This little bite is a culmination of so many techniques I have mastered over the years! In this one small bite you will taste fermentation, pickling, house made dairy, and complete fabrication of a grain into a cracker. The cracker may be my most proud moment with this snack. As a chef, my technique continues to evolve and surprise me. I hope this first taste surprises you!
Market Vegetable Salad, Horseradish, Meyer Lemon
I believe salad courses are true tellers of good chefs! If you can make a salad, and have people coming back for more, THAT is true skill. It sounds so simple, but my passion is to make healthy food tasty! This shaved vegetable salad is meant to highlight the amazing produce we have in California.
Coconut Curry, Salmon, Turmeric, Purple Potatoes, Cauliflower, Purple Kale, Toasted Cumin Flat Bread
The colors in this dish alone make it inviting. It's playful and well rounded. The eye catching golden curry accented with purple kale and heirloom carrots make it a stunner. Curry was one of the first things I learned how to execute for family meal in kitchens years ago. It's incredible to see your progress and this dish is a reminder of exactly that. I look at this dish and smile and I hope you will too! The flat bread may be the star of this course.
Rose Water Custard, Market Citrus, Mint
Often, I find desserts to be so complicated! I have taken away all of the fuss. Here, I give you a surprisingly light and delicious end to your meal. This is not meant to be overwhelming, but intended to be immensely satisfying. The citrus keeps the custard light, with hints of rose water threaded throughout.
