So, like, Australian rock band INXS? They’re, like, totally, into huitlacoche – you know, corn truffles? And Playboy bunnies? You should see them hop on a plate of cotton candy and Froot Loop bars.
“The girls when they come in they always order it,” says Chef Kerry Simon about bunny love for his collection of childhood treats called the Junk Food Platter. “They specially want to make sure that I’m there to serve it to them.”
Chef Simon – aka: the “Rock n’Roll chef” -- cut his chops in three-star restaurants and made his name plying celebrities like David Bowie and Sting with playful yet accomplished helpings of Americana. At LA Market, located in the city’s buzziest new entertainment hub, he captures the celebrity vibe in everything from the see-and-be-seen dining room wrapped in towering glass to the reality-TV star working the open kitchen.
