For residents of Los Angeles, the food-and-art nonprofit Active Cultures’ Home Assembly Meal Kit 1 incorporates everything needed for an exquisite candlelit dinner for two. This not only includes recipes and ingredients for a three-course meal from chefs Niki Nakayama and Carole Iida-Nakayama (partially prepared at their two-Michelin-star establishment, n/naka) but also a limited edition sculpted candle by artist Glenn Kaino and a music program (with playlist) by Liza Richardson. From the Seared Albacore Sashimi Salad to the Yuzu Pound Cake, it’s a multi-sensory food adventure. With all proceeds supporting Active Cultures’ work, it’s also a gift that gives.
