Hidden in plain sight in The Grove adjacent to the Original Farmer’s Market in Los Angeles is the comfortably elegant, The Whisper Restaurant and Lounge. Right now it’s a great respite from the craziness of The Grove during the Holidays.
The Whisper celebrated its 10th birthday this year and, for the last seven years, has been under the culinary direction of Executive Chef Anthony Jacquet. It’s classic American cuisine with contemporary surprises. It’s surprisingly reasonable for the quality of the food and the refined atmosphere.
Chef Jacquet recently returned from an eight-day culinary adventure in Taiwan as part of the 2014 “Taste Taiwan” Culinary Tour. Of 25 chef nominations in the United States and Canada three chefs were selected to participate on the trip including Anthony Jacquet. He created a signature dish inspired by his time in Taiwan. This dish will be a special in January.
The chefs’ “Taste Taiwan” food journey is profiled in an upcoming documentary for CNBC which will air at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, December 28th.
Chef Anthony joins us to share the highlights of this special experience.
