New Year Resolutions

Posted on January 6th, 2014

Cheers to the Earths’ current climate change! Who would of thought that we would have 80 degree weather this Christmas….. but a polar vortex on the east coast. Stay warm, as I imagine in the next couple of months winter will finally hit SoCal. Bundle up!

Where Chef Lou believes the best fish comes from?

Posted on November 6th, 2013

Who inspired you to start in the cooking business?
