Puerto Rico: Celebrating Cultural Food Traditions

March 3, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

$50 – $90

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 will be chosen soon.

Our partner nonprofit for the evening’s donation is Puerto Rican Civic Club. More on them soon!

The proposed menu for the evening will include a whole pig roast and accompaniments (including items for our pescatarian and vegetarian friends!) Details soon.

*If you have any specific dietary restrictions, please let us know when you purchase your ticket and/or email us with details so we can plan accordingly. No changes can be made the night of*

Pricing: We’re committed to being and building an inclusive community while also making the event sustainable for the chefs. Everyone is welcome at our table and to help that happen we offer sliding scale tickets prices which include dinner, drinks (alcoholic & non) and stimulating discussion.

$90 – A portion of your ticket subsidizes someone who can pay less.

$75 – If you earn a living wage this ticket helps the chefs do the same.

$50 – Join Us! We are grateful that you choose to spend your money on this important work and are excited to have you at the table!

If you are feeling inspired to come but $45 doesn’t work, please email us at slowfoodeastbay@gmail.com

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.
