Ginger Pierce & Tara Punzone

Episode 12

Chef Ginger Pierce & Chef Tara Punzone

In honor of Eat + Drink Week in West Hollywood, we sat down with two female chefs who are making waves in the culinary scene. Chef Ginger Pierce, Culinary Director at 1 Hotel West Hollywood, shares how she creates a locally sourced- and inspired menu that speaks to the sustainably focused brand. From the hotel’s garden to their own private beehives to their lobby farmstand, everything Chef Ginger does is purposeful and delicious.

We also chatted with Tara Punzone, Chef and Owner of Pura Vita, the first 100% plant-based Italian restaurant and wine bar in the U.S. We learned a bit about her journey and how she’s created more than just a phenomenal plant-based menu, but also a community, from employees to neighbors who make Pura Vita the special spot that it is. Tune in for the highlights of the West Hollywood food scene.
