When Nathan Turner and designer Jeffrey Alan Marks team up in the kitchen, it’s a given that these two SoCal boys cook up a coastal meal inspired by the sunny beaches of their home state. All bets are off when Jeffrey throws a handful of extra jalapenos into the dish because he wants more green in the bowl. Spoken like a true designer!
