Ludo Lefebvre

Ep. 126 - This week's guest practically invented the pop up restaurant in Los Angeles with his LudoBites dinner series, before opening Trois Mec last year with former podcast guests Jon Shook and Vinny Dotolo.  Since then Trois Mec has been named Best Restaurant in Los Angeles for two years running by L.A. Weekly, and was just named one of the 38 Best Restaurants in America by Eater. He's also one of the mentors on ABC's The Taste alongisde Anthony Bourdain, Marcus Samulesson and Nigella Lawson. We talk to Ludo about the music he listened to growing up in France, the great musicians he's gotten to cook for, and the guitar lessons he got from Michelle Branch.  And of course we ask him about the foie gras ban that was just lifted in California.  

A limited edition 10th Anniversary Edition of his first cookbook CRAVE was just released. Get more details at  www.ludolefebvre.com
