Chef Wes Whitsell @chef_wes_ of Manuela will be speaking today on a panel called Food Power: The Importance of Farmers featuring Amy Scattergood (LA Times) @ascattergood, Romeo Coleman (Coleman Family Farms) @farmeromeo, Alex Weiser (Weiser Family Farms) @weiserfamilyfarms, and Wes Whitsell (Manuela). @ManuelaDTLA, has quickly become one of the top destinations for food and art lovers around the LA area. Dining at Manuela is more than just a meal. You're staring into one of the most beautiful open kitchens in LA surrounded by the Contemporary art of the Hauser Wirth & Schimmel Gallery @hauserwirth. The menu is heavily influenced by Chef Whitsell’s culinary roots and upbringing in rural North Texas, the menu highlights artisanal techniques including in-house smoking, fermenting, preserving and pickling, and celebrates locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. Utilizing his strong relationships with farms throughout Southern California, Chef Whitsell has centred Manuela’s menu around locally-grown produce, seafood and grass-fed livestock, thoughtfully sourcing each ingredient for flavor and seasonality and using the onsite smoker and wood-fired grill to subtly enhance flavor. Serving a wide range of vegetables, grains, fish, and game. Stop by the garden and check out the chicken coup to say hi to the restaurant’s 12 rare-breed chickens!
