Born in Mexico, Raquel Goldman moved to Miami at the age of five, but Mexico remained a formative part of her childhood as she returned every summer to visit her grandmother. After studying art in college and starting a family, she enrolled in San Francisco Cooking School. This led to an externship and later a job at the restaurant Nopa, which deepened her interest in local produce. In 2020, she started Norte54 as a pastry box delivery program, while popping up at farmers markets. Norte54 offers modern Mexican baked goods focusing on traditional pan dulce, using seasonal produce and local organic ingredients. Find Norte54 at the Mission Community Market on Thursdays.

Also join us for our first demo with with Malena Lopez-Maggi of The Xocolate Bar at 11:00 am.

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.
