Porridge. Yeah. That probably conjures up grim, Dickensian images of thin, gray gruel seasoned with—at best—tears and soot. But not in Louis Tikaram's world. At his restaurant and bar—E.P. and L.P., respectively—in Los Angeles, the Aussie-Fijian chef is known for bold, bright flavors with a visual punch. At home, he won't mute that sensibility, but he doesn't go in for a lot of morning fuss, either. While dramatic, black rice steams on the stove and almond milk warms, Tikaram takes the time to chill out with his recently adopted—and frequently Instagrammed—dog, P., and plan his day.Once that's ready to go, a little salt, sugar, and bright fruit slices (use whatever's in season) make this pretty porridge a simple, clean, colorful way to meet the morning—and it's delicious as the dickens.Black Sticky Rice Porridge with Fresh Mango and PapayaFilming location courtesy of Bond New York.
