Los Angeles based, seasonal and unique farm to table cuisine.  


The Walrus and The Hedgehog is a joint project created by Sean Cardamone, Shannon Clapham, and Travis Desmond, Three friends, living in the same house, who love to play with food. After years of experience in kitchens across California, a friend asked us to cater her wedding as a team; the success of that collaboration made us realize we wanted to continue to work together to share our passion for seasonal farm to table cuisine. Individually we all bring our own culinary personality to the table, and our vision combines a commitment to technique, artistry, and experimentation. We craft our menus with care so that each meal is a unique celebration of time and place, whether for an extravagant wedding or an intimate dinner party. In addition to event and corporate catering, you can find us at farmers markets, where we are serving up street food and take home treats. Find us at the Altadena Farmers Market on Wednesdays. 3-7pm during the fall and winter, 4-8pm spring and summer. 600 W Palm St. Altadena, 91001. and Sundays at the Hollywood Farmers Market every Sunday 8am-1pm 1600 Ivar Ave Hollywood.
