An Interview with Marlene Bernstein, chef & owner of Savour this Kitchen
Whether you’re just discovering Toast Meets Jam or have been following along for a bit, this next interview is one you won’t want to miss. Marlene is the pint-sized powerhouse behind Savour this Kitchen, an umbrella brand that includes her catering company as well as vegan and gluten free signature sauce and spice blends. She invited me to one of her favorite spots in downtown LA, The Springs, to catch-up over green juice and guacamole.
There are so many things I love about this interview. To start, I am head over heels for The Springs. This recently opened spots dubs itself “a multi-faceted urban oasis” and includes an organic juice bar, yoga studio, wellness center, and raw vegan restaurant & wine bar. What’s not to love?? If you’re in LA you need to find any excuse to make your way there (yes even you west siders!).
On top of getting to do the interview at an awesome spot, Marlene was just a blast to get to know. We started with the serious — how did you get started, what’s your advice–weaved in a lot of of fun along the way, and ended up with a full-on karate demonstration– she’s a black belt. There are so many ‘mazing things to discover about Marlene. Make sure to check back to catch the full interview!
