{oh joy eats lunch with} jenny park…



Who  Jenny Park, food stylist and blogger

Where  Los Angeles, California

Time 1 pm

What's a typical lunch for you? There really is no "typical" when it comes to being a food stylist that also writes and tests recipes. When I'm on a shoot, we usually grab something quick and easy like salads, pizza, sandwiches, Thai food, etc. But when I'm at home testing recipes, my meals turn into single bites taken throughout the entire day from things like caramel apple cupcakes to uni spaghetti to deep friend ravioli. I eat whatever I test! On a good day, I get to enjoy a banh mi sandwich, one of my favorite sandwiches ever (this one is from Number Nine in Long Beach). I just love the combination of pickled root vegetables, paired with creamy pate, spicy jalapenos, rich, flavorful meats, and fragrant cilantro and stuffed between a light, crispy French baguette. Such a simple, yet unique mixture of ingredients…it's so good! 

What's your dream/ideal lunch? Fresh grilled seafood on the beach with some sort of tropical cocktail served in a hollowed-out pineapple. And my feet must in the sand.

Dessert with lunch?  Nah, I don't care too much for sweets… but a small after-lunch cheese plate I could do! 

Thanks Jenny!

  1. “deep fried ravioli”…. you are extreme my dear lady.
    I love banh mi until they pronounce #bangme. That’s it; that’s the end of my “banh mi escapade”
