Ludo Lefebvre is a chef, restaurateur, author, TV personality and twin dad. He is one of the most influential chefs in Los Angeles who is credited with starting the pop-up restaurant phenomenon. You may have eaten in one of his award-winning restaurants such as Petit Trois or seen him on one of the many TV shows he’s hosted. In this episode we discuss his childhood in Burgundy, France as a young culinary apprentice and how he eventually made his way to Los Angeles in the 90’s. He shares how he feels about awards and accolades, what he hopes future chefs will say about him and more. Ludo gives back to his community in a number of ways from packing food at food banks to helping the homeless, and he also gives praise to World Central Kitchen for keeping his restaurants active during the pandemic by helping to feed people in need. Enjoy this episode as we go Beyond the Plate… with Chef Ludo Lefebvre.
