This Thursday we are pleased to host Roger Feely, founder of Soul Cocina, a San Francisco based culinary arts project. Roger hosts cooking classes and underground dining experiencesin the San Francisco Bay Area, and can be found on the streets via http://twitter.com/Soulcocina, or behind the stoves at Kitchenette and Living Room Events. On Thursday, Roger will be presenting our first Chaat menu (Indian street food).
Roger will be donating his profits to a fender blender from Rock the Bike for the Beacon Culinary Project of Western Addition. He will use the fender blender to promote homemade cooking and alternative sources of energy. The program "provides quality after-school programming for youth and also serves as a community center addressing the specific needs of the Western Addition community." Roger is personally involved in this project, and visits once a week to share his passion for cooking.
