Matthew Kenny is crafting the future of food.
Treat yourself and your BFF's to a fabulous 'tasting' experience at the new Matthew Kenney's M.A.K.E. Located inside the Santa Monica Place Market, in Los Angeles, California, M.A.K.E. is a living foods, raw restaurant, featuring cutting edge plant-based cuisine.
Everything is alive, radiant, nutritious, plant based food that is so full of energy, it is a delight for all the senses. Experience the rich fuscia colored Chidori kale for the eyes, the ears get the crunch of the sesame-flax crisps, Kenney is the master presenting the tastiest raw food recipes with the biggest wow factor. Each bite has a continuous surprise of flavors, layered to slowly discover throughout the whole palate. The most fun is 'deconstructing' the dish and sharing the guess work with your fellow foodies.
Note: Matthew Kenney Culinary is right next door, with a state-of-the-art raw food Academy. It feels as if the student chefs are creating these unique recipes all at once and the dishes are designed in the moment, just for you.
This whole-food centered eating extravaganza is the result of innovative ideas inspired by seasonal, local produce, as well as many of Matthew's classic raw food dishes.
"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."
The manager and servers are very helpful and explained the dishes so that even a neophyte would understand. When each serving arrives it is like a gift, where you are aroused by the attention to detail and the artfulness of the plate designs.
LA Spa Examiner Fun Favorite:Trying to keep the beauty of the plate arrangement in tact (almost impossible) while awakening to the ingredients and enjoying the cacophony of flavors with a surprise in each bite.
In addition, Kenney is an entrepreneur with a variety of projects such as the “PlantLab, an experimental kitchen and laboratory redefining plant-based cuisine. PlantLab utilizes modernist techniques to develop new culinary innovations, pairings, and recipes. Through strategic partnerships, PlantLab is outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, some of which is straight out of a laboratory. We believe that plant-based cuisine deserves the level of attention and analysis that only PlantLab can provide.”

FYI-Tony Robbins says, “If you want to be alive, eat live foods”. He also brings up the point that our planet is 70% water and our bodies are 80% water. He says then, that it only makes sense for us to eat mostly water rich foods such as fruit, vegetables and sprouts. He explains that proper diet increases one’s energy, which is necessary for total success.
