Tenzo Is the Chic Online Culinary Resource You've Been Waiting For

Tenzo Is the Chic Online Culinary Resource You've Been Waiting For

A decade ago, Los Angeles wasn't nearly the culinary force that it is today. Beyond the influx of celebrated chefs and restaurants, our community is also getting more conscious about what they eat and more interested in preparing and presenting their food. Essentially, we've all become foodies (whether or not we cringe at the term). 

Tenzo, a recently launching online shop and culinary resource, speaks to that type of informed and discerning shopper, offering goods like locally made ceramics, hand carved wooden spatulas, and German mushroom knives as well as pantry items such as small batch organic coffee, Himalayan pink salt, and wild rice blends. Unsurprisingly, the endeavor was the brainchild of three creative and culinary forces: Saehee Cho, who's catering company SOO N Food is a favorite among LA's fashionable, Jeffrey Ozawa, who started contemporary bento box delivery service and catering company Gorumando, and Jaime Lewis, a photographer and web designer who's perspective on food and dining stems directly from her background as a historian. 

With Tenzo, these three aim to not only curate a collection of beautiful products for the online shop, but also offer a resource and inspiration for novice cooks and professionals alike. Anyone curious and passionate about exploring and experimenting with food is welcome here.
