Chef Series: Zarah Khan (Botanica restaurant, LA)

Chef: The February, 2021 featured Chef is Zarah Khan, Head Chef at LA's Botanica Restaurant. Growing up in Seattle, she has made a name for herself with bright, flavorful, veg-forward cuisine inspired by her Middle Eastern heritage. Studying environmental science led her to a deeper exploration of the stories behind the food she prepared, the impact of humans on our food systems, and the ways in which she might inspire a new perspective.

Charity: Chosen by the chef, net proceeds from this month's sales will go to Polo’s Pantry - a mobile food pantry dedicated to serving unhoused and marginalized communities in Los Angeles.

Hummus Flavor: Toasty Sage - Fresh parsley, toasted sage, and roasted garlic come together to create a vibrant savory twist. Topped with hand foraged local pink peppercorns, sumac, and crispy sage leaves.
