Pages Bookshop Presents: Caleb Zigas with Reem Assil

We are thrilled to host executive director of La Cocina Caleb Zigas at Pages to discuss his new cookbook, "We Are La Cocina." Caleb will be joined by special guest chef, Reem Assil. They will both be conversation with local food journalist and founder of Tostada Magazine, Serena Maria Daniels.

Chef, Tunde Wey said about the book, "There are few places, in popular food, where theoretical ideas of equity meet the formidable reality of actually practicing equity. La Cocina is this place and this new book reflects the hard joys and painful rewards necessary to make it happen." 

This event is free and open to the public. Caleb's book will be for sale before and after the event.
