Episode Info:

Jessica Koslow is the chef behind Sqirl, a widely popular LA-based breakfast and lunch spot that seems to always have a line out the door. 

As if Sqirl wasn't enough, Koslow is also opening a brand-new restaurant, Onda, has written a book on New California Cooking, and is about to release a new book on jam making. It's incredible to think that this highly acclaimed chef didn't go to culinary school. In fact, pursuing a career in food didn't hit her until her college years, when she found herself on a cranberry farm.

Jessica shares her cranberry epiphany with us, as well as useful tips on how folks can cook more sustainably at home (here's one tip: turn aging cucumbers into ice cubes!).
