About Travis Lett

Travis Lett

Travis Lett is a New Jersey boy who grew up in a strict macrobiotic household and became a self-taught, farm-to-table, much-ballyhooed chef who presides over two south California restaurants: the bakery and restaurant Gjusta and what’s been described as the “veggie-forward Cal-Italian” restaurant Gjelina. He can be found in either kitchen at practically all hours of the day. Gjelina is his first cookbook. @gjelinarestaurant
