It’s been awhile since you’ve seen my face around here! I thought it would be fun to do a little Friday Intro...can you spot me in the Geometric apron and my most favorite dress of all time from the Oakland-based line, Lacson Ravello?!
I’m Jenny, the founder of Loyale...I spend an embarrassing amount of time thinking about food, scouring Eater for restaurant news, reading recipes and conjuring up meals. I love oysters, shumai, donuts, rib-eyes, grilled artichokes, pho, sourdough, crunchy salads and roast chicken.
I like to hang out with cooks of all kinds and a new goal is to take one of @eatchofood’s dumpling workshops. My current fave cookbook is Zaitoun by Yasmin Khan. I go to Farmstead Restaurant at Long Meadow Ranch, Liholiho Yacht Club, Rich Table, Leo's Oyster Bar, Verjus, The Charter Oak and Hog Island Oyster Co. every chance I get. I work out of The Wing in downtown San Francisco and am so inspired by their well curated space, events and members.
Being principled and transparent are very important to me, so my company focuses on ethics and conscious consumption. Last month, we launched an ethical kitchen essentials collection that I’m extremely excited about! Our products are responsibly sourced, ethically made in SF and 3% of sales are donated to La Cocina and Kitchen Table Advisors.
Thank you for following along, I truly appreciate having you on this journey with me!
