The Art of Food and Amy's Decadent Underground Dinner Parties


By Karen Young

“I’m really into yummy decadence, not fussy decadence,” says Amy Jurist  as we sit in the modern kitchen of her airy home in the Studio City hills overlooking the San Fernando Valley.


Placed on the table, surrounding a thoughtfully arranged  centerpiece of lilys and grapes, is a tender chicken and beef satay with peanut sauce, carmelized apple and goat cheese crostini with balsamic drizzle that tastes like candy, and a farm fresh heirloom tomato and pesto bruschetta.  And filling a frosty glass,  is a delightfully sweet and tangy mango and calamansi smoothie.


No slumming on this mid-afternoon snack, that’s for sure. And “yummy” it is.
