Ashley James' Cuisine Culture: From Four Seasons Beverly Hills to PBS
You've heard of the casting couch, how about the casting kitchen? Fresh from behind the stove, L.A. chefs, with their proximity to TV producers, seem to have a lock on new TV food shows this year. Ludo and Krissy Lefebvre's Ludo Bites America entertained on Sundance Channel this summer; chef Eric Greenspan is demolishing kitchens (and then fixing them up, of course) for A&E's Fix this Kitchen; and on PBS, Cuisine Culture recently debuted hosted by the Four Seasons at Beverly Hill's executive chef Ashley James.
James found much inspiration interviewing and cooking with such diverse and talented chefs. A seasoned chef himself, he's worked at Four Seasons' hotels in Argentina, Mexico and Singapore. He recently revamped the bar menu at theFour Seasons Windows Lounge to reflect those global experiences adding a "StreEAT" selection of small plates. From a jazzy Gazpacho salad of jicama, watermelon, papaya and pineapple to Belgian fries with house-made mayonnaise, James offers street food made with quality ingredients -- some harvested from the hotel's on-site garden.
