AUGUST 6 (Saturday 2 - 4:30 pm)

Kansha Kitchen Cooking Challenge

A cooking workshop and competition conducted by ELIZABETH ANDOH at 18 Reasons (San Francisco, CA)

The RULES: Upon arriving at  classroom, participants will be assigned a place at one of four prep stations (4 people to a station). Each station will have a "black box" containing a few plant-based ingredients. With your teammates you will choose several foodstuffs from the box and decide upon two dishes to make from them. Once an ingredient is selected, it must be used entirely. USING FOOD FULLY is the goal! Elizabeth will go from station to station during this time, offering suggestions and advice as needed.
