Kravetz practices a cooking style in which the basic flavor combinations of food are simple, fresh, seasonal, tasty and presented in a special, unique way. This concept is exemplified with some of her new dishes coming to the menu at Baleen, such as the Roasted and Not Roasted Beet Salad and beef carpaccio ravioli.
