Name: Leanne Citrone
Job Description: Hairstylist and salon owner of The Andy Lecompte Salon and a passionate home cook.
Eat this for: I don’t drink coffee, so I need a 3 pm sweet treat to get me through the rest of the day. This is a healthy sweet treat to satisfy that chocolate feeling. They are easy to make and keep well for a few days.
Where do you find recipe inspo?
I find recipe inspiration everywhere! I have a 13 ft dining table and I work at one end of the table. I always have a big stack of cookbooks there so when I'm on the phone working I have something to flip through. I go to the Hollywood Farmers Market every Sunday and I am always excited to see the beautiful produce the farmers have to offer. Sometimes I buy produce I wouldn’t normally get just to challenge myself and make something new.
Top 3 Instagram accounts for inspiration:
I am British so @gill.meller in one of my favorites he is an incredible chef and has the best cookbooks. His Instagram feeds my soul.
I adore @carolinagelen she is so fun to watch, she makes such beautiful food and I love hearing her talk she is funny and real.
Not food related but the most beautiful home inspiration is @galerieprovence the furniture and home imagery fill my heart with joy.
Dream dinner guest to cook for:
Her Royal Highness the Queen of England :)
Favorite skin food ingredient and why:
A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar mixed with a glass of water first thing in the morning. It's a great way to start the day and give your digestive system a boost. Oh and drinking water, my family makes fun of me because no matter what’s wrong with anyone I always say “ you need to drink more water” or “ how much water have you been drinking”! Hydration is truly the most important thing for your skin!
Any Alice Waters cookbook! I love Diana Henry, and Falastin by Sami Tamimi and Tara Wigley.
Go-to quick, healthy meal:
Fried eggs on toast are a go to for any time of the day. I love making Greek salads, they always hit that sweet, crunchy, salty in a perfect way. Taco night for the whole family is a big win. I am big on snacking during the day so cheese and crackers and fruit is a go too.
Skincare mantra: Water, sleep, and a facial once a month from Lena at Carasoin. She is incredible and I have gone to her for over 10 years.
COCONUT CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES
Combine the cocoa powder, coconut oil, agave, and salt using your hands to combine into a paste (you may need a drop more of coconut oil). Roll into balls. You should get about 14 in total. Set aside. Place the chia and shredded coconut into two bowls and roll half into each mixture. Place the truffles on a plate and leave in the fridge for about an hour. Enjoy.
