Famed French chef and Top Chef Masters contestant Ludo Lefebvre’s LudoBites at Breadbar has been a massive success, but pushing boundaries in an open kitchen has paled in comparison to meeting his passionate fans. Speaking with Food GPS, Ludo details how tweeting with L.A. foodies inspires him: “On Twitter I ask people to talk about their passion about cooking…If I see somebody who’s very passionate, I invite them to my kitchen…I want to take them to the market with me, show them my inspiration…I want them to see how we sweat…cooking is not just looking in a book.” The personal cooking classes have been a two-way street as Ludo was taught all about Korean BBQ, Vietnamese food, and Memphis ribs by local friends, inspiring him to possibly try a rib-night at his next outlet. “Now I meet so many people…I go eat at their house and meet them at restaurants. It’s cool,” says the French chef.
