This Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) will launch the “Rising Chefs Series,” the non-profit organization’s first-ever pop-up series concept in Downtown Los Angeles. The dynamic experience will bring together three emerging Asian American chefs in a 4-week celebration of food, culture and the spirit of innovation.
Week 4 will feature a menu by Chris Ono, JACCC’s newly appointed Chef in Residence, whose culinary training comes from Michelin starred restaurants, Providence, Eleven Madison Park and Mori sushi. Chris is a 4th generation Japanese American creating dishes evocative of both his French and Japanese training and JA heritage. He will focus on seasonal ingredients using the freshest locally sourced fish, vegetables and meats.
