Christina Alexis, The Pleasure Principle Supperclub & Dining Events

Saturday, March 30, 2024, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Stop by the Foodwise Classroom for a cooking demo featuring the seasonal bounty of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market.

Chef Christina Alexis is in a constant state of remembering and adorning memories of watching their grandmothers, aunties, and mothers make meals of deep nourishment appear out of the same thin air the direct testimony of their forebears disappeared into. Chef Christina nods, winks, and bows to the cuisines of the West Indies, to be nourished and to remember what is beautiful and brutal about the diasporic cookery borne out of the cuisines that came along these shores in the minds and bodies of those arriving here without choice. As a chef and service provider in the Bay Area through The Pleasure Principle Supperclub & Dining Events, Chef is finding the palatable nexus where cultural heritage and locavore priority intersect. She is constantly inspired by the abundance of the agricultural accessibility of living and working in and around Oakland, made apparent by the unique epicurean offerings of her seasonally focused menus. Take or bring a seat at her table. She’s waiting to nourish you and share a tale or two.

All demos take place in the Foodwise Classroom (under the tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.
