A Couple Cool Culinary Events in the Mission This Saturday


Lisa Rogovin from the In the Kitchen with Lisa tour I took.

This Saturday October 16th, you have a couple of ways to pack on some delicious calories. First up, Parties That Cook and Lisa Rogovin have partnered up for an event called ~MOUTHWATERING MISSION~. You’ll start with a two-hour interactive culinary tasting tour of the Mission, including a stop into La Palma Mexicatessen, where you’ll learn about some of the ingredients you’ll cook with later. After reconvening back at the La Victoria Bakery kitchen, the group moves into a cooking class with Parties That Cook, featuring Mexican-inspired dishes such as little chicken tacos with chocolate mole and queso fresco, and mini chalupas filled with chorizo and avocado. Read all the details here. $95 per person. Starts at 11am.

Also at La Victoria Bakery will be ~HELP A BROTHER OUT!~, an event to help raise funds for Nick Harper of Wholesome Bakery, who was just recently diagnosed with brain cancer. There will be a bakesale from 11am-3pm, featuring treats from Mission Minis, Fat Bottom Bakery, Wholesome Bakery, Bike Basket Pies, Mad for Madelines, MaliNumNum Treats, Alfajores by El Porteño, Sour Flour, and more. And then from 6pm-10pm, there will be a street food party, with vittles from Soul Cocina, Slow Jams, Hapa SF, El Porteño Empanadas, Gumbo Cart, Adobo Hobo, Dezy’s Drinks, Chai Cart, Smitten Ice Cream, Sataysfied, and more. Proceeds will go to Nick’s Rad Recovery Fund.
