Stephanie Kordan, Stephanie du Jour

Hello, I’m Stephanie, sharing the pleasures of cooking, eating and dining with you. The recipes on this blog are created with fresh ingredients & local whole organic foods for plant-based vegan and vegetarian dishes.

I’m not the kind of person to give up pleasure, but the sort to encourage it. (Go ahead, have another bite of that cake.) Although most of the time I use plant-based ingredients and fresh produce, so there’s little to be concerned about (besides, chocolate is good for you). 

I’m passionate about the pleasures of food. In my own style of eating and cooking, pleasure is an essential ingredient. 

While being healthy and eating well is definitely on the menu, enjoying food and feeling good is what being a sensual foodie is all about.

I’m on Instagram daily (that’s why I’m @stephaniedujour!) and would love it if you’d join me there too. Sometimes I post recipes and sometimes I just post pretty food photos. Lately, lots of vegan ramen, matcha lattes and dumplings.

If you’re a brand and would like to work together, feel free to send an email to stephanie@thesensualfoodie.com for rates and media kit. I’ve worked with Birch Benders, CrockPot, Waiakea, Fix & Fogg, Veggie Grill, Lahtt Sauce, BanzaPalais des Thes, Maille Mustard, Adagio Teas, Kissa Tea, Maison du Bon, Vana Life Foods, and many more.

Stephanie creates every recipe post and tempting photo for The Sensual Foodie since 2011. She also writes articles for various publications, such as LAWeekly, Huffington Post, Thrillist, Vice Munchies. A lifelong vegetarian, Stephanie creates plant-based recipes at home. Her food philosophy is rooted in vegetarian cooking in a casual California style. She is a Los Angeles native with a passion for discovering all things vegetarian in the city.

Stephanie appeared on MasterChef on Fox as a food critic — watch Season 7 “Critics Choice” episode 17, and is a guest food critic on a new Gordon Ramsay tv series premiere.
