We went out twice this week for the Cart for a Cause Cookbook, a pro-bono project we are working on for the Saint Vincent – Meals on Wheels program. The cookbook which is slated to release late this year, will feature 30-40 top chefs in Los Angeles, sharing one of their popular recipes… one they have served for guests dining at the Cart for a Cause.

On Monday we photographed Jon & Vinny of Animal Restaurant (also of Two Dudes and Son of a Gun fame). We have been lucky enough to have Jon & Vinny cater our shoots on occasion. Needless to say, mealtimes were the highlight of those days!!! These guys rock!

With their (very) relaxed style, Jon & Vinny were fun to shoot and have a great passion for their food. The recipe they’ll be sharing in the cookbook is for their mouth-watering chorizo.
