Jessi takes her favorite memories about food and then calls on her heart, travels, and passion for cultivating, growing, and experimenting to nurture the bold colors and flavors that define her. I’m inspired by her commitment to learning about ethnic foods and traditions from their source. She grows unique produce in her South Minneapolis garden. She shares what is in the moment, in the element, and what is in her heart with each dish. I hope you too can experience her generous and graceful nature on and off the plate
