Haute Living went one on one with Jar owner and chef Suzanne Tracht, who is among the rare group of American women chefs who have achieved the ultimate dream of owning their own restaurant. With Jar, her modern chophouse in the heart of Los Angeles, Tracht dazzles Angelenos with the allure of her familiar retro dishes from the American culinary repertoire. Her contemporary interpretation of dishes like pork belly and chocolate pudding prove that delicious food can also be unpretentious. We sat down with Tracht to chat about her ultimate steak dinner, being a female chef in the biz and begged her for her famous butterscotch pudding recipe (thankfully, she obliged).
