Roxana Jullapat, until recently the pastry chef at Cook's County on Melrose Avenue, is popping up Jan. 10 for the kickoff of a series of pop-up dinners cooked by bakers called, appropriately, "Bakers Making Everything."
"Bakers are bakers but not everybody can cook," she says. "I found two other gals who also can cook and we're going to have fun."
The dinners will be at Elysian LA, a special events space in Silver Lake ."It's very Eastside, kind of underground," Jullapat says. "But it's fully permitted and everything, so we can do these dinners."
The menu for Jullapat's dinner will include buckwheat toast with blue cheese butter and shaved radishes, Treviso Caesar salad, pork roast with quince, bitter greens and grits or a winter vegetable pot pie, and tangerine sticky pudding, as well as an assortment of side dishes. The fixed-price menu is $42.
Reservations are available online.
Following Jullapat will be Sarah Lange from the Hart & the Hunter on Jan. 16, and Red Bread's Rose Lawrence on Jan. 23.
"It's just a little fun in January type of thing, it's a one-off for sure," says Jullapat. "Well, who knows for sure, but for now it's just a little experiment."
As for future plans, Jullapat promises that something is in the works and will be announced soon.
Elysian LA, 2806 Clearwater St., Los Angeles, (323) 522-6625.
