Thursday, October 29th at 5:30pm PT

Voices From the Kitchen shares stories from cooks and kitchens less often heard. Over the last five years, the twice-yearly stage performance featured photography, animation, video, sound, and an interactive food experience for the audience.

While the event is free, consider supporting La Cocina by purchasing a paid ticket and/or a meal kit from the talented La Cocina chefs, which you can enjoy while watching the show.

Theme: Choices | 2020 has presented us with an almost endless series of choices, while sometimes simultaneously leaving us feeling there are few viable options. This production captures inspiring and personal narratives from 8 storytellers and 2 film shorts that speak to this unique time.

The Line Up | Lauren Whitehead | Jia Tolentino | Aileen Suzara, LC Entrepreneur | Noah Cho | Mayukh Sen | Jennifer 8. Lee | Chris Colin | Nic Jay Aulston | Rachel Levin
