A Tour of Ed Begley Jr.’s Kitchen in Los Angeles


Ed Begley Jr.

Age: 69

Occupation: actor

Location: Studio City, Calif.

Favorite Room Mr. Begley and his wife, Rachelle Carson, hired William Hefner, a Los Angeles architect, to design a French-Mediterranean home with the highest green certification, LEED Platinum. Mr. Begley’s favorite room is the kitchen. “I make a very good guacamole,” he said.

Is it difficult to design a green kitchen that’s also functional and attractive?

It can be. But I’ve gotten more reasonable in old age. In the old days, I would have used a little tiny box with no ice maker, no proper racks for sauces. In an effort to make a green fridge, you had this rustic box. This is a full-tilt modern fridge with lots of space that the wife is happy with.

What’s in Ed Begley’s fridge?

I’m a vegan. So I have a soup that I made, a spicy tomato soup from a recipe in “The Moosewood Cookbook”; tofu veggie dogs; coconuts that have the hull removed so you can open them and have a drink.

Given all the mounting environmental problems we face, how do you keep your spirits up?

When I get down about things, I remember what we have done. I started with the first Earth Day, in 1970. We have millions more people in L.A., but a fraction of the smog. We lobbied for smog devices on cars, clean-fuel buses, all the stuff big and small to clean up the air. It worked. We have to remember to celebrate our success.
