Jennifer Huang, Nusa

Saturday, August 5, 2023, 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Kick off National Farmers Market Week (August 6-12, 2023) with Foodwise at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market! Stop by the Foodwise Classroom for a cooking demo by one of our food crafters, featuring the seasonal bounty of the farmers market.

Nusa (formerly called 1000 Layer Bakery) was founded in 2013 by chef and owner Jennifer Huang who grew up in Indonesia. When her family immigrated to the Bay Area, Jennifer realized her homeland had very little local culinary presence. This inspired Jennifer to learn how to cook and bake with the intention of sharing her favorite childhood desserts with her family. Her passion for baking Indonesian food moved her to launch 1000 Layer Bakery, a catering business, which she later rebranded as Nusa. When it outgrew her home kitchen, she applied to the La Cocina incubator program. She has since transitioned to retail of small-batch made-to-order goods. Find Nusa at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on Saturdays.

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.
