People's Kitchen Collective ft. Chef Marcus Samuelsson
ABOUT THE DINNER:
People's Kitchen Collective is collaborating with award winning chef Marcus Samuelsson to host an intimate pop-up dinner at ALENA in West Oakland for our community. Chef Samuelsson will be in the kitchen and at the table with us sharing stories from his culinary career and newest cookbook, The Red Rooster.
In true PKC form, diners will be seated at long family style tables and the menu will be served and shared family style. The multi-course menu will be a collaboration between the chefs of the People's Kitchen Collective with direct inspiration from Marcus Samuelsson's recipes collected in The Red Rooster Cookbook: The Story of Food and Hustle in Harlem. Expect a meal that fills your stomach, feeds your mind and nourishes your soul. The night is going to be filled with music and celebration and a whole lot of creativity coming out of our kitchen collaboration!
Reservations are set at $50 and are very limited. The cookbook is not included in the ticket price. The cookbook will be available for purchase at the event for $25.
Dinner from 7-9pm at ALENA.
The People's Kitchen Collective works at the intersection of art and activism as a food-centered political education project and cooperative business. Based in Oakland, California, our creative practices reflect the diverse histories and background of collective members Sita Kuratomi Bhaumik, Jocelyn Jackson, and Saqib Keval. Written in our family's recipes are the maps of our migrations and the stories of our resilience. It is from this foundation that we create immersive experiences that celebrate centuries of shared struggle.
When chef Marcus Samuelsson opened Red Rooster on Harlems Lenox Avenue, he envisioned so much more than just a restaurant. He wanted to create a gathering place at the heart of his adopted neighborhood, where both the uptown and downtown sets could see and be seen, mingle and meet and so he did, in a big way. Ever since the 1930s, Harlem has been a magnet for more than a million African Americans, a melting pot for Spanish, African, and Caribbean immigrants, and a mecca for artists. Named after a historic neighborhood speakeasy, the modern Rooster reflects all of that, from the local art showcased on its walls, to the live music blaring from its performance spaces, to the cross-cultural food on its patrons plates and the evocative cocktails in their hands.
