Chef Nyesha Arrington has been cooking for as long as she can remember. Some of her early memories revolve around standing on a chair beside her Korean grandmother in the kitchen while getting a lesson on how to peel garlic. Arrington pays tribute to her Korean and African-American lineage through her cooking. Her distinctive menu makes her new Santa Monica restaurant Native a must-hit for LA diners.

Arrington will be appearing at Los Angeles’ All-Star Chef Classic alongside some of California’s most notable chefs. For Good Food, she scaled down Native’s recipe for kimchi latkes making it perfect for the home cook looking to change up the traditional recipe. It only takes six simple steps before you are biting into the flavorful Korean-inspired potato pancakes.
