Chef Ludo Lefebvre
Lefebvre is a culinary prodigy who worked at his first three-star Michelin restaurant at age 14. By age 25 he was running his own kitchen in Los Angeles and winning accolades for serving some of the most imaginative, forward-thinking food the city had seen. In 2007, he traded fine dining for the freedom to cook outside the box, even though it meant sacrificing his skilled kitchen brigade and drafting an eight-year-old to clean green beans and separate eggs.
The result was LudoBites, a “touring” restaurant that, like a rock ‘n’ roll band, roved the streets of Los Angeles playing to different sold-out crowds every four months. The concept brings together old-money customers with a new generation of ambitious eaters who cram in elbow to elbow and cheek to cheek for the chance to sample Lefebvre’s inspired, wildly imaginative food.
Essays prefacing each chapter give an unprecedented glimpse into the mind of “the chef of the future” (Time), a culinary genius who breaks all the rules. Beautiful, full-color photographs offer behind-the-scenes glimpses of the pain, drama, and triumph inherent in his creative process. As innovative and inviting as the unique chef it captures, LudoBites is a fascinating look at food and a revolutionary new way of cooking.
