Gayle Anderson was live in Culver City at Akasha Restaurant, which is offering this Passover weekend; Passover Food Specials Friday night and a complete Sedar Saturday night. Sunday, the restaurant is going to offer an Easter-Passover brunch, featuring foods important to each holiday, including what some call a new Passover Burger. You do not need to be Jewish to participate.
AKASHA features New American cuisine offering comfort food with big flavors and sustainable ingredients, for carnivores and herbivores alike. Chef/Caterer Akasha Richmond brings visionary cuisine to her own neighborhood eatery located in the historic Hull Building in downtown Culver City. Keeping the principles of sustainability in mind, the building's original steel, wood, concrete and brick arches were restored while the design materials pair with a seventies modernity to exude an inviting and lively atmos-phere. The Cafe has both sweet and savory selections, as well as locally roasted Intelligentsia coffee. The 20-seat bar highlights fresh juice cocktails, organic and premium spirits, beer and wine. The entire menu is available for catering or to go.
Akasha Richmond, renowned chef and popular author, has enjoyed great success at her eponymous restaurant, AKASHA, since its opening in February 2008. Akasha knows her reputation is hard-earned, and she takes that trust very seriously. "I am very selective about the suppliers I work with for AKASHA, they must share my values to keep their ingredient on our menu" Akasha says.
