Chef: Sandy Ho (Sandita's)

July 2021 features chef Sandy Ho, founder of Sandita’s. The now LA-based private chef and food stylist uses local and sustainable ingredients to create food filled with joy, nostalgia, and color. Raised in Australia, she graduated with a degree in Fine Arts before discovering how her deep connection to family and art are rooted in the kitchen. 

From artist to cook, this leap of faith paved way for opportunities in restaurants and eventually a 2.5 year adventure sailing and cooking around the world. With a love for bringing communities together over a meal, she is committed to making foods that connect and honor her life experiences and Vietnamese heritage.

Charity: chosen by the above feature chef, profit from this month's sales will go to Palestine Children's Relief Fund - a nonprofit humanitarian organization providing medical relief to children in the Middle East. Urgent relief efforts are needed now.

Flavor: Blue & Yellow Mushroom Salad Hummus - This bright delight pays homage to the flavors of Southeast Asia, with vibrant butterfly pea powder & turmeric. Baby shiitake mushrooms are nestled in the coconut cream & Makrut lime leaf, infused blue & yellow swirl.
