Jenny Ross is the executive chef and proprietress of the 118 Degrees Community Cafes in Costa Mesa, Anaheim, and Laguna Niguel. The original location at The Camp in Costa Mesa recently celebrated its 7-Year Anniversary.
Chef Jenny characterizes her food as fresh, organic living cuisine. Her mission is simply for her guests to enjoy more plant-based foods in their regular diet.
118 degrees is the temperature at which plant-based proteins break down and start to lose some of their nutritional value.
In her restaurants she uses some unusual equipment to avoid heating her food over 118 degrees. These items include the anti-griddle (super cold) and dehydrators.
Her soon to be published 3rd cookbook is Healing with Raw Living Food.
