"We Got The Jazz" Podcast feat. Kemba's Kitchen!

Recently, I sat down with the wonderful Autumn Woodland of the "We Got The Jazz" podcast. We discussed Kemba's Kitchen, veganism, and embracing the watermelon! Pictured is a overhead shot of our Uramaki (inside out) Soul Food Sushi Roll topped with Seared Watermelon Steak. Simply Delicious!

Raw Plant Based time! A client requested a raw vegan menu and we were happy to oblige. Retaining all of the nutrients and freshness of the whole vegetable and fruit, incorporating raw items in one's daily diet is a great way to go!

Here we have Zucchini Noodles that are tossed in a raw Basil Pesto, then topped with Sundried Tomatoes and Raw (nut-based) Parmesan. This is just one of the many vegetable pasta option available when you contact Kemba's Kitchen at info@kembaskitchen.com or 310.737.8344.

Happy Friday: Roasted Peach Melba Ice Cream

I absolutely LOVE peaches! I celebrate the naturally sweet and bright flavor of peaches from Morning Motivation through After Hours.

I've been working on several peach applications for my menu selections--this is a tester favorite. The fresh peaches are prepared and roasted for this late-summer version of a classic dessert. Always remember: vegan should always mean plant based excellence.

Southern California Fried Cauliflower Florets w/ Smoky BBQ Sauce

This is an exciting week for Kemba's Kitchen; after the initial online launch (and a flurry of cupcakes later) everything is in motion! 

When planning menus and creating seasonal applications, I take a lot of inspiration from the garden/farmers market.

During these beautiful, late summer days, it is good to take advantage of the early fall produce with a splash of summer goodness and deep flavors.

September 1, 2015: Unlocking Day!

September 1, 2015: Unlocking Day!

For those who have been on this journey with me over the years, you know this is a LONG time coming. From my tiny, pre-war kitchen in Washington Heights, New York began the germination of a desire to make the best plant-based (100% vegan) food that anyone ever had.

On my long journey to my current plant-based life, I never settled for food that ONLY met a dietary checkpoint. It better look good and taste even better. Friends and family are very familiar with my "No Vegan Pass" mantra: just because the ingredients have changed, my expectation for culinary excellence has not.

Now in full bloom, after numerous tastings, years of research, and stepping out on faith, my realization of Kemba's Kitchen is finally a reality! :)

As a special THANK YOU to everyone who supported me over the years and held my feet to the fire, I have a Raspberry Lavender with Lemon Zest Glaze Cupcake for everyone who stops by the lab* after 3pm TODAY ONLY!
