About This Project
Chicken & Monkey Cafe’s owner, Kalissa Krejcik, is an ingenious chef de cuisine, plain and simple. Her recipes are without complication, her food is organic, locally grown and purchased, and her vision is universal. In addition to a store front in the Palms neighborhood of Los Angeles, Kalissa is the executive chef of the Alegría Gourmet Food Truck, and she created a fantastic new menu for The Irish Times Pub & Restaurant, also in Palms.
For this session, all of the food was prepared and photographed in-house with natural light in just under four hours.
