Event description

Description

Join us for an evening of food, drink, and conversation in celebration of the new cookbook, We Are La Cocina: Recipes in Pursuit of the American Dream (2019).

Chef Valerie Erwin will moderate a panel discussion with participants of La Cocina, an incubator for low-income entrepreneurs to build food businesses that reflect the diversity of the immigrant experience. Since 2005, La Cocina has brought together women from communities of color and immigrant communities to showcase food projects that reflect their lived experiences. Representatives from La Cocina will share their stories and invite the audience to think about ways to mobilize and empower Philadelphians to engage in similar work.

Cookbooks will be available for purchase.
