Culinary Demo with Chef Nyesha Arrington
Chef Nyesha J. Arrington, aka “The Ninja”, has been in love with the kitchen since cooking alongside her grandmother at a young age. Born in Southern California, Arrington was introduced early to diverse foods such as bulgogi, octopus, and homemade kimchi. These experiences infinitely shaped Arrington's palate development and her ideas about cooking and culture. By integrating flavors and techniques from around the world, Arrington can create a global style that is both personal and unparalleled. Arrington is celebrated for her advocacy of using farm-fresh, locally, and responsibly sourced ingredients and has been lauded for her accomplishments in the culinary industry. Today, Arrington owns and operates a full-service, chef consulting & catering business, Arrington LLC., and also a restaurant called Native by Nyesha located in LAX airport. She travels across the planet doing speaking engagements, producing food experiences, and currently mentors on the food competition TV show Next Level Chef, standing alongside Chef Gordon Ramsay and Chef Richard Blais.
