Food / Non-Fiction

Food, Community, and California

 Food connects places, ingredients and, most importantly, people – a fact celebrated in new cookbooks from native or adoptive Californian authors Rahanna Bisseret Martinez (Flavor+Us: Cooking for Everyone), Tanya Holland (Tanya Holland’s California Soul), and Natasha Pickowicz (More Than Cake: 100 Recipes Built for Pleasure and Community). Connection, inspiration, reliance, and a spirit of service shine through the communal stories these authors share in their beautiful and very different cookbooks, each brimming with mouthwatering recipes and visual delight. Join us for this intergenerational conversation on flavor, technique, community, and California, moderated by James Beard award-winning food and culture writer and Cali native, Osayi Endolyn (Black Power Kitchen, and The Rise).
