While on a Dwell Modernist Tour I discovered a creative independent block of Echo Park and on a recent trip back I fell in love with Cookbook, a little community grocer that is so much more. I found an online article on Kinfolk Magazine with an interview written by Jessica Comingore who captures the essence of this delicious shop and does the shop more justice than I could. I included only the first paragraph, but if you click on the link below you can read the full post, or better yet visit Cookbook LA—you will not be disappointed.
“Marta Teegan and Robert Stelzner are the owners of Cookbook LA, an artisan market in the heart of Echo Park. With a background in art history and a passion for food, the two open their doors seven days a week to give locals access to a carefully curated selection of produce and responsibly-made food. True to their name, they also whip up an assortment of freshly prepared dishes, pulling recipes from a different cookbook each week.”
