    Food is more than just sustenance: more and more, we are understanding the role food plays in healing. This Tasting Menu highlights Pei-Ru Ko, founder of Real Food Real Stories (RFRS), and chefs and farmers who use food as a way of restoring health. RFRS, whose mission is to humanize the food movement, coaches changemakers in food to tell their authentic and personal stories. 

    Hear from Ko and four other female leaders in the field — Preeti Mistry of Navi Kitchen and The Juhu Beach Club Cookbook, Sylvia Charles of Just Date Syrup, Kristyn Leach of Namu Farm and Aileen Suzara of Sariwa Kitchen — then sample a bite from each of the chefs. Photographic portraits by Brenton Geiser of members of this movement, accompanied by audio recounting their stories, will be on view throughout the evening. The cash bar will be open.
