Slow Food East Bay's Cultural Food Traditions: Puerto Rico

Slow Food East Bay's Cultural Food Traditions: Puerto Rico

Join Slow Food East Bay for the next in our series celebrating diverse culinary traditions!

For our next stop, we will gather at Korner in Oakland and visit Puerto Rico, featuring a chef working to bring his cultural foodways into his work as a fine dining chef. Manny has been working alongside Andres at Snail bar as sous chef since the very beginning and is starting to branch out with his own project, Temporal: Comida del Caribe y Latino America.

Our moderator for the conversation is Maria Acevedo Campbell, board president of the Puerto Rico Civic Club and a native of Puerto Rico living in Oakland. She was pivotal in the local response to both Hurricane Maria and Fiona, helping fund relief efforts.

Our partner nonprofit for the evening's donation is the Puerto Rico Civic Club, more on them soon!

The proposed menu for the evening will be out soon

As our political & social discourse gets more polarized, it becomes ever more important to have places where we can have meaningful connection discovering inherent connections to one another. Join us for an evening of delicious food paired with just as delicious conversation, leaving with both your belly and mind full.
