Table Talk: The JCCSF Foodways Series

Food tells stories that go beyond what our taste buds detect, from ingredients harvested to cooking techniques. A cuisine reveals layers of culture, history and people as it traces migration routes and connects diasporas. First- and second-generation Americans, by cooking and eating the foods of their home country, are able to remain connected with the place they came from, and with the people and culture they left behind. Eating is a sensory experience that spans generations and oceans, a tradition that reflects both our current lives and our collective past.

In our Community Foodways series, we explore the hidden histories of the diverse communities that have left their mark on the Bay Area's vibrant culinary scene. Join us as we shine the spotlight on locals who share with us their family recipes and stories through cooking demonstrations, tastings and conversation.
