Local Baker Roxana Jullapat is known in the community as not just a baker but a passionate organizer and supporter of local causes, schools and other chefs. She’s the kind of firebrand you want on your team. The one who hears an idea and without a beat is asking when do we start? She and talented chef (and husband) Dan Mattern have been busy since leaving Cook’s County. In addition to the hours cooking at Elysian in Frogtown they’ve been working on a cookbook, quite a beautiful one by the looks of initial glimpses.
To satisfy your curiosity about how cookbooks come together to express a particular vision go hear them speak at one of The Annenberg Space for Photography Studio Talks. Roxana and Dan will join photographer Noé Montes for a behind the scenes look at the development of their cookbook. Rudy Espinoza, Executive Director of LURN and a colleague on the Los Angeles Food Policy Council will moderate. You’ll love him. He’s super smart and totally plugged in.
