Caleb Zigas - We Are La Cocina: Recipes in Pursuit of the American Dream — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Located in San Francisco’s Mission District, La Cocina is an innovative business incubator that supports a growing roster of small businesses—specifically, it helps turn informal home restaurants into sustainable legal enterprises by offering hands-on technical assistance to low-income and immigrant women entrepreneurs. In this rich and colorful album, Caleb Zigas, executive director of La Cocina, introduces fifty of these successful entrepreneurs. Sharing their stories, dreams, and recipes—from basics like tortillas to miso soup to Kuy Teav Phnom Penh (Cambodian noodle soup)—these women celebrate the power of food to bring us all together.
