Matthew Kenney’s M.A.K.E. to Open in Fall


As the world’s leading Raw food expert, author of several best-selling cookbooks, television host, and entrepreneur specializing in the Raw lifestyle, Founder and Chef Matthew Kenney is driven to educate and inspire guests with healthy, delicious, and vibrant Raw cuisine. With the West Coast arrival in fall 2012, he announces the opening of M.A.K.E. and the Matthew Kenney Culinary School, a state-of-the-art education center dedicated to the teachings of Raw and Living Cuisine, in the beachside community of Santa Monica. With plans to share nutritious, flavorful plant-based dishes with locals and visitors alike, his multilayered concept at the upscale Santa Monica Place shopping complex will include a Raw and Living Foods culinary education facility; M.A.K.E., a Living Foods restaurant featuring a one-of-a-kind Raw-tasting bar; as well as a forthcoming marketplace and juice bar.

M.A.K.E.’s mission is simple: to use whole, organic, unprocessed, plant-based foods to achieve healthy, aesthetically refined, and flavorful cuisine. “Our goal with this concept, as it is with our other restaurants, is to emphasize the benefits as well the pleasures of a well-prepared, plant-based diet,” says Kenney. “I want to share the lifestyle and enjoyment of Raw cuisine with our diners in Los Angeles, where amazing local produce and a clean-living culture already exist. Good food and good health go hand in hand.”
