La Cocina and Mezcalistas Presents

'La Lucha de La Cocina' 

a Taquiza & Lucha Libre in Celebration of the Luchadoras of La Cocina 
With the generous support from Pier 70, a Forest City Project



What are you fighting for?


La Cocina & Mezcalistas, in collaboration with Pro Wrestling Revolution, present a Taquiza & Lucha Libre in honor of the struggle thousands face just to live and secure employment in our city. Luchando the best way we know how, through the healing powers of food and community, we're bringing together our favorite chefs and local non-profits to create a space that mirrors our objectives: a city where opportunity is equal and where entrepreneurs can gain financial security by doing what they love to do, creating an innovative, vibrant and inclusive economic landscape. 



1. a taco party
"the most recognizable Mexican food item is probably the taco. people love them so much that they have parties just to celebrate them. these parties are called taquizas."


lucha libre
1. a type of professional wrestling originating in Mexico in 1863, distinguished by masked fighters and steeped in lore
"wrestlers and fans discuss the main tenets of lucha libre, good vs. evil, and how these are reflected in their own lives."


1. to struggle, to fight
"the women had a simple dream: to make food, to sell it and to provide for their families. the barriers were high and when they looked around at those in power, sometimes they felt as if they wouldn't suceed. but when they looked inside, they knew the power within them was greater than the oppression that sought to engulf them and that against all odds, they would win. but not without a fight. this was their lucha."

La Cocina

La Cocina is a ground-breaking business incubator designed to reduce the obstacles that often prevent low-income food entrepreneurs from creating successful and sustainable small businesses. By providing affordable, shared, commercial kitchen space, an array of industry-specific technical assistance and services, and access to market opportunities and capital, La Cocina works with entrepreneurs as they launch, grow, and formalize successful food businesses. We focus primarily on women from culturally diverse communities and immigrant communities. Our vision is that our program participants will become economically self-sufficient and contribute to a vibrant and diverse economy doing what they love to do.
