LA Times Features Ronnen

Vegan chef Tal Ronnen's myriad mainstream projects.

The piece highlights Ronnen’s many culinary accomplishments, including catering Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi’s wedding, catering Oprah’s vegan cleanse, consulting with all 22 of Steve Wynn’s restaurants in Las Vegas to add vegan options, and his latest project—collaborating with two former McDonald’s executives on Lyfe Kitchen, a healthy fast-food restaurant set to open later this year. The multitasking chef shares his secrets for fish-free crab cakes and seafood stew, and reveals that with so many projects going on, he’s yet to cook a meal at home for the last 18 months.
