A Design Observer Symposium on Food and Visual Culture


Jessica Koslow worked in pastry at the James beard award winning restaurant Bacchanalia in Atlanta, Georgia.  Upon returning to California, Jessica was attracted to the diversity of local produce - beautiful and honest snapshots of the state’s vigorous growing seasons.  In 2011, Jessica started Sqirl, a now, highly-regarded preserve company that focuses on using produce from family-owned farms that practice sustainable, certified organic methods that are in close proximity to Los Angeles. Sqirl, the chef driven breakfast and lunch restaurant followed, which LA Weekly placed at #9 and LA Magazine slotted as the #7 best restaurant in Los Angeles for 2014.  Jessica was one of 100 chefs in the US to be nominated for F&W’s People’s Choice Chef of the Year and has just been named a Los Angeles RISING STAR by the industry’s leading magazine, Star Chefs. - See more at: http://www.lafw.com/index.cfm/chef-Jessica_Koslow_694.htm#sthash.7W4kQFPJ.dpuf
