Share This Dish: with Chef Jenn Louis

We're so excited that Chef Jenn Louis is sharing her recipe for Haricot vert with Ras al Hanout from her Book of Greens in our very first installment of Share This Dish. 

Jenn Louis is one of the hardest working and inspiring chefs we know.  We first met Jenn while she was in NYC prepping for her dinner at the James Beard House.  She makes amazing food, is super-inspiring and we feel privileged to call her both a friend and a client here at KK Studios.

We can't wait to try her new restaurant, Ray, where Jenn celebrates Israel's diverse cultures and culinary traditions with a modern, seasonal menu imbued with a straightforward, full-flavored style.
