The healthy menu expands at Hot and Cool Café with the addition of Nobe’s P.B. Foods. Already a popular Leimert Park spot, the coffee-and-tea-shop will likely attract even more foodies with the added selections.
Chef Synovia Jones is the creator behind Nobe’s P.B. Foods, which will eventually feature a line of plant-based frozen foods. Currently available are frozen vegan crab cakes, which buyers can store in their home freezer.
A huge crowd of vegan and meat lovers gathered at the café to enjoy free samples of the crab cakes during the launch party on June 30. Also offered were chicken – not, cashew ricotta cheese and spring mix.
All of Jones creations will be available at the Hot and Cool Café, starting July 11, including her range of appetizing salads and healthy dressings, along with her famous veggie burgers, chicken wraps and falafels where she uses herbs and spices to achieve flavorings indistinguishable from meat products.
Nobe’s P.B. Foods is the latest business for Jones, who founded the Super Salads To Go mobile eatery and Fit and Healthy Cooking classes. The motivation behind all of her ventures is providing nutritious food to underserved communities to improve their quality of life.
“My businesses grew out of my life and passion to help others in their quest to develop a healthy lifestyle,” said Jones, a former fitness instructor, personal trainer and competitive bodybuilder.
“Over the last 30 years, I’ve watched the health of family, friends and associate decline and the reasons many are not longer with us is due to their diet. Diseases such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease can be prevented through proper diet and exercise,” she insisted.
Adopting a plant-based diet more than 40 years ago, Jones transformed her knowledge into practical application with Super Salads To Go and she shares her information with others through the Fit and Healthy Cooking classes. Both children and adults are welcome to participate in the monthly hands-on sessions, which are held at the Hot and Cool Café, 4331 Degnan Blvd., in Los Angeles. The $35 fee includes all of the plant-based or vegan ingredients for the meal.
But for those who desire a quick treat, Jones urges people to try Nobe’s P.B. Foods. “You’ll be surprised at how delicious and convenient Nobe’s frozen food is, plus you’ll enjoy the benefits of healthy eating.”
