NetwerkHER: Chef Yasmina of “Lalla Mina”


If feeding people heals the body and soul, then food provides the connection between humans and places where trust and harmony are established,” -Yasmina Ksikes, Owner of Lalla Mina in Los Angeles, CA

If you’re in LA looking for food fueled with intention, we’ve got the perfect person for you. On the LA leg of our tour, we partnered with Chef Yasmina of Lalla Mina for the small bites during our LA Happy Hour, where event attendees were able to kick off the weekend with amazing food and drinks from local culinary experts. 

A native of Rabat, Morocco, Chef Yasmina’s culinary style was crafted by the traditions of her mother and grandmother, as well as the culmination of “captivating aromas, succulent meals and sensual music” as she often puts it. Chef Yasmina’s U.S. culinary career has taken her to Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Miami, Chicago, and her current place, LA, where her exquisite tastes have been experienced by many . For our N2N tour, she crafted a personalized culinary experience that every single attendee raved about, as her food had an authentic Moroccan feel that we are certain we can’t find anywhere else. 

Not only does Lalla Mina offer catering for events, but she also hosts classes, ranging from “Crepes, Bread, and Tea” to “Casablanca Flavors, a 3-course Meal.” Make sure to visit her website for her upcoming events, and you never know, she may visit your city next!
