Kris's Avocado Toast
Kris Yenbamroong, chef and owner of LA's two Night+Market restaurants, cooked for himself often as a kid while his parents were working at the family's L.A. restaurant, Talésai. He made avocado toast a lot, in different ways. "Sometimes I'd use that Taco Night cheese you get at the supermarket and put the whole thing in the toaster oven," he says. This one is a current favorite. It's simple, but the massive amount of avocado, generous sprinkle of salt, and the toasted chile powder make it outrageously good.Our suggested wine pairing: Ponzi 2015 Pinot Gris (Willamette Valley; $19).
