Save Chef Alisa's Legacy on Pico

For the past two years, I have suffered in silence because of a legal battle.  Honestly, I am facing the biggest obstacle of my professional life.  If you have ever watched me cook, you know that I am most careful to take my time to bring out tremendous flavor in the food I prepare.  My challenge is from individuals that originally backed my expertise. 


The work that I do and the level of proficiency that I employ, took time to perfect.  Each day, I spend countless hours honing my culinary skills so that only the best food is eaten by the people I love.  Unfortunately, some of my early backers misunderstood the culinary process and decided to sue me.  


As a self-confident and proud woman, I have no problem working hard to correct problems. I have spent all of my money and also repeatedly tried to resolve this matter peacefully. However, this fight will only end if I settle this lawsuit for $111,000.  


Several of my closest friends and supporters have pledged to donate generously to help me.  In light of the numerous pledges, I am still in need of financial assistance to reach my goal.  If I do not raise $111,000 by August 15, 2017, I may no longer be able to continue working at 2 Cents LA.  My absence will affect the other 17 beautiful people who work with me and pour their hearts and souls into the food that they prepare each day.  


The time is now and the need is immediate.  Please donate what you can to support our role in our wonderful community and to keep me cooking at this place I call home.

With gratitude,

Chef Alisa
