For green plum shiso butter that’s incredible spread over a hunk of sourdough, a riff on kettle corn called Moon Pop, cassava flour piecrust mix, and more, west~bourne—the online zero-waste provisions shop for regenerative, carbon-neutral ingredients—is the ultimate. The tireless genius behind it is LA chef Camilla Marcus, who, at the end of each day, comes home to three kids. “As a business owner and mom, I firmly believe in self-care. You can’t give from an empty cup,” says Marcus, who’s also a cofounder of ROAR (Restaurants Organizing Advocating Rebuilding). Lately, she’s been filling her cup with some me time: firming eye masks, shine-boosting conditioner, and sleek fashion staples.
