The Angeleno Food Revolution
Food critics have identified her as a leader in the Angeleno cuisine revolution. Angelenos are defined as natives or inhabitants of the Los Angeles area, and Nyesha believes there are three critical aspects of any dish. According to her, you need “a sense of nostalgia, a bit of seasonality, and a cultural conversation.” These nuances in flavor make her an important figure throughout the community.
Nyesha advocates for the farm-to-table model and encourages fellow chefs to use fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Nyesha is committed to transforming industry standards for food quality, and even spearheaded a dinner installation project, “Food is Art” to benefit the Sustainable Economic Enterprises of Los Angeles.
