La Cocina Open House Goes Off!
Ran into pretty, pretty Meatpaper Mag-nate Sasha Wizansky at the hot-ticket La Cocina party on Friday. We stole sips of a fantastic pepper punch...
cochinita pibil (basically Mayan pulled pork, and a rather special dish!) from the folks at Chaac-Mool Yucatecan cafe in Oakland...
...and watched as the crowd swelled to pack the La Cocina incubator kitchen, which houses the small ops of a few handfuls of highly talented, low-income food entrepreneurs, mainly women.
...and snuck home for a disco nap.
