I first met husband and wife chefs Charlie and Kathleen Schaffer when they catered a movie premiere I attended. Not only was I impressed with their falafel, but I learned their cooking had also pleased many celebs both in Hollywood (Barbra Streisand, Eddie Murphy, Martin Scorsese, Kate Beckinsale, Julie Andrews) and elsewhere (Martha Stewart, Heidi Klum, Tom Brokaw). They even cooked for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who probably didn’t know the two former busboys first met while working at the Republican National Convention at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
I decided to visit them in their Venice, California kitchen, where the couple specializing in sustainable handmade food showed me how to make their baked beet falafel. Watch the video recipe, the first ever posted on GAYOT.com, and follow the printed recipe below. You’ll be glad you did!
