Samuel Monsour thinks that the best way to change the way America eats is to revolutionize the way we see junk food. The Boston chef recently moved to Los Angeles with the intent to start with a humble pop-up of his popular concept, The Future of Junk Food.
On October 26 from 7:30 to 10 p.m., he's partnering up with a slew of local chefs, including Jeremy Fox (Rustic Canyon), Marcel Vigneron, Thi and Nyugen Tran of Starry Kitchen, and Erwin Tjahyadi (Komodo) to produce a one night pop-up at Santa Monica's Huckleberry. Dishes include a fried bologna sandwich, cool ranch gordita, viet crepe cup, and crudo.
The seven-course affair includes drinks by Devon Espinosa (The Church Key) and runs $125. The evening is being produced in conjunction with Kitchensurfing, a private chef-for-hire marketplace that launched last year in LA. For event information and tickets, click here.
