Mexican food is featured as Slow Food East Bay hosts the next dinner in its Cultural Food Traditions series. Join in for a memorable evening with chefs from El Huarache Azteca and La Oaxaquena. Hear their stories and discuss pre-Hispanic food traditions, the variety found in Mexican foods, and the entrepreneurship of Mexican immigrants in the United States. Taste a variety of moles, chiles en nogada, spiced lamb with maguey leaves, and more. The evening’s beneficiary nonprofit is Refugee & Immigrant Transitions, providing education, family engagement, and community leadership services. Cost: $45–$85. Info and tickets: here

The evening takes place in the new site for ROC United’s COLORS Restaurant, inside the Restore Oakland  building in Fruitvale. Restore Oakland is a center for community organizing and advocacy that also provides hands-on job training, business incubation, restorative justice mediation, and housing rights services all in one space. The building’s ground floor will be the site for COLORS, which will pay a livable wage, hire people from the community, and offer a training kitchen and community cooking classes.
