Meet a kitchen dedicated to empowering female chefs

Our new cookbook obsession features so many amazing recipes that we don’t even know where to start: with pupusas and curtido? Or with forbidden rice krispy treats? Maybe kuku sabzi, or jerk chicken? 

The cookbook we’re talking about is We Are La Cocina, and it documents the stories and recipes of the entrepreneur participants of the non-profit business incubator of the same name. 

And on September 17th, we’ll be celebrating the cookbook and the people behind La Cocina with a special event! Join us for a cocktail book party with snacks from the book; beer, wine, and cocktails; and a chance to meet the people behind this amazing program. 

La Cocina is dedicated to supporting talented, working-class food entrepreneurs, primarily immigrant women and women of color, in building successful food businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

La Cocina’s director, Caleb Zigas, and one of the entrepreneurs of the La Cocina program, will join Ashley Christensen in a panel conversation about the trials, challenges, and triumphs that women face in pursuit of financial freedom in the culinary world. The cookbook will be available  to purchase. 

Don’t miss this chance to get a sneak peek of this amazing cookbook, and hear about this incredible program. Tickets are limited, and available here.
