La Cocina Gift Fair is Today!

La Cocina Gift Fair
La Cocina is hosting a holiday gift fair where you will have a chance to try and buy lots of wonderful things from participants in their food business incubator program and other local entrepreneurs.

Some of my favorites not to miss are Clairesquares for chocolate covered crunchy "flapjack" oat bars, Kika’s Treats for chocolate covered caramelized graham crackers, Love and Hum­mus Co for delectable organic hummus, Sajen for spicy and healthy Indone­sian drinks. In addition, Marcia Gagliardi will be there signing copies of her terrific book, The Tablehopper's Guide to Dining and Drinking in San Francisco.

In my experience, food gifts are some the most appreciated gifts of all. In this case you'll also be supporting low-income entrepreneurs in our community and helping turn them into successful business owners.

Where: Mis­sion Cul­tural Cen­ter for Latino Arts
2868 Mission Street between 24th and 25th St., San Francisco

When: Fri­day, Decem­ber 10th, 4PM — 9PM
