From our friends at Community Services Unlimited, Inc.
This first Food Party of 2012 is being hosted by CSU friend and supporter Brandon Stroman with a special guest chef, recipe and appearance from Bryce Fluellen, Owner/Chef of YAMS Catering based in Los Angeles. Bryce has over 20 years of experience in the food industry. His career includes serving as Director of Operations for Magic Johnson Enterprises but his love affair with food started at an early age as a “professional taster” for his Aunt Bessie May (YAM is MAY spelled backwards) who introduced him to the concept of using local fresh ingredients. Bryce was professionally trained at Chef Eric’s Culinary School in Los Angeles. Bryce is committed to “giving back” and started his own movement called ESSENTIALS which collects household items (soap, deodorant, cleaning supplies, etc.) to assist cash strapped families. In addition, he has served has a mentor and supporter for local and national organizations such as Brotherhood Crusade, CCAP (Careers through Culinary Arts Program), I Have a Dream Foundation and the Los Angeles Urban League.
Bryce will be making and serving a recipe using seasonal produce from CSU’s Village Market Place and will share the recipe for you to try out at home. The full menu and event details will be sent as always to those who RSVP. This will be a vegan event and the theme will be cleansing foods.

IN 2008 CSU began hosting a (sometimes) monthly food party as a means of bringing together cool people and great food and also raising some needed resources for our work. Each food party has a different theme that is reflected in the food and music (and clothes for the willing). You don’t have to stay the whole evening, in fact the evening is planned so folks on their way elsewhere can stop, eat, chat and move on. The number of attendees will be limited for each event and it will be strictly pay in advance.
A detailed menu and address for the event will be sent to those that RSVP, but you can be sure to get home cooked gourmet food, featuring locally grown and beyond organic produce, at an incredible price of $20.00, along with great company and the knowledge that your dollars are supporting a great cause.
