Curt & Sandra
Cooking up delicious plant-based food isn't our only priority, as advocates for sustainable home cooking, we're inspired by a culturally diverse and more inclusive food system. Featured in Orange Coast Magazine as O.C.’S BEST 2019! | SEE & DO, I'm the owner at HESSPEA Plant Based Cooking & Hospitality. I had the wonderful privilege of having a dad who was an Executive Chef. For over 25 years I have traveled the beautiful culinary regions of Africa, Caribbean & South America. There's nothing better than a well-balanced cultural experience to pair with a home-style cooked meal made from locally sourced produce vendors.

Where you'll be
Located in the historic Anaheim Packing District on the ground floor of the Anaheim Packing House. Hesspea Plant-Based Cooking is easily accessed thru the north entry, down the steps to a private entry near the Box Car Wine Bar & Cooks Chapel. The Packing District is a popular place with hipsters, foodies and live music. So it gets crowded. Recommend valet parking $5.00. Self-parking is available.
