Fresh pasta. Hand made by Orso. Available for delivery throughout So Cal, popping up at Employees Only LA. Available for purchase at both the @cityhallfarmersmarket and @newportbeachfarmersmarket.

keazy tea

Back in the early days of Crafted Kitchen, Ed Paje came to talk about his idea for a different kind of #kombucha. We connected over food entrepreneurship and finance. Back then, his product, Koldwave Kombucha, was mostly a passion project as he wasn't ready to leave the world of private equity. Understandable. Today, after trials and errors and lessons learned, @keazytea launched.
What's Keazy Tea? It's a tea-based beverage with 5% naturally occurring alcohol. Low-cal, low sugar and free from artificial flavors and chemicals, it's a healthy, antioxidant-rich, probiotic beverage. Delivered to your door, it's in a category of its own.

keazy tea embodies four all natural ingredients. SUGAR + WATER + TEA + CULTURE

Congratulations @fewforall. We’re so proud of you!

THANK YOU SO MUCH

We’ve officially hit the two month mark (to the day), and as luck would have it, our team woke up to the most amazing gift anyone could ask for: our hero @bill_addison featured us in the @latimes!

Thank you Bill for this generous, thoughtful, amazing write-up, and for featuring some of the hospitality heroes on the front lines who push themselves every day to provide our community with some necessary comfort.

This truly feels surreal, and we could not have done it without every single person that has been a part of our journey since the beginning. So we’d like to honor some of those people now, and forgive us if we leave anyone out (we will edit as the day progresses) - still overcome with emotion over here!

Thank you to @ivcooks and @pilotdtla for the continued and endless support. To Cindi and the team @craftedkitchen for hosting us during this time of growth and transition. To our extended family @nouswithoutyou, @valahospitality, @mata.tu.sed, @mr_diaz, @requiem4adrink: you inspire us to keep pushing and leading with empathy. To @secret_lasagna and @tabularasabar for believing in us and our products. To @funwithkate for being a spiritual guide and shoulder to cry on. To every media outlet, influencer and follower that has used their platform to shine a light on our project. To our friends @bray___ray @kevincaravelli @chefchadcolby @antico___la for being a part of our first Table 60 project (congrats on the write up as well, homies). To @hallithbates for her generosity and beautiful sense of whimsy - those menus give us life. To @chile.limon for being the first to join our team when we had no f**king idea what we were doing. To @fryingsolo, @pizzababy4eva and @rileybillingsley for being so down to jump in and make things happen when we were stretched thin. To @lafoodbank for feeding LA and providing food security for hundreds of thousands of people in need.

To you. To LA. We love you so much.

Be well, friends. We can’t wait to be together, all of us, very soon.

Yours,
Tyler, Mallory & Ramzi

Chefs Call for $120 Billion Restaurant Stabilization Fund

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has twice failed to help independent restaurants. Loans have been granted to massive chains, like RUTH'SCHRISSTEAKHOUSE and Shake Shack while the majority of small restaurants in this country are seeing rent bills pile up with no relief in sight. According to a survey conducted by the IRC and the James Beard Foundation, the food services industry only received 9% of PPP loan dollars, even though it accounted for 60% of job losses in March.

The government's Paycheck Protection Program has failed independent restaurants.

My pride in and happiness for Jocelyn Ramirez in writing her first book is far greater than can be adequately expressed in a Facebook caption. Her hard work, tenacity and talent are equal to her kindness and generosity. She is a blessing. Buy the book, read her words, experiment with her recipes and when the clouds part, visit TodoVerde at Smorgasburg Los Angeles to enjoy her spectacular food. You’ll be glad you did (and you won’t miss the meat).

What to know about the risks of restaurant takeout and delivery — and how to minimize them

The messaging from the CDC has been consistent. There is no evidence that the coronavirus can not be transmitted through food. It is “generally thought to be spread from person-to-person through respiratory droplets” from coughing or sneezing.
When ordering takeout or delivery, support small food businesses by choosing your favorite local, independently owned restaurants rather than the large, national chains. #savehospitality #eatlocal #toosmalltofail

Customers, restaurant workers and drivers must all follow some rules to make these meal options safe.

Whether you work at a restaurant or eat at one, you’re part of our community. As members of the Los Angeles dining and hospitality community, we’ve come together as a united front to appeal for financial assistance from our local, state and federal governments.

In the absence of substantial government assistance, our industry will not survive. We need you to actively help us through these unprecedented times.

Want to help? Please post this to your social media. Share it with your friends and local leaders. It’ll go a long way in helping us get the help we need to survive.

@GavinNewsom, we are suffering. Please hear us, listen to us, advocate for us. The time is NOW.
