The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County continues its First Fridays Connected: L.A. at the Intersections series with, “Culture x Cuisine,” featuring Roy Choi and a performance by Automatic, on Friday, May 7.
The public can dive into a lively live stream discussion around Culture x Cuisine featuring Choi, a celebrated chef, Los Angeles street food advocate and co-founder of Kogi BBQ, and Sarah Portnoy, author of “Food, Health and Culture in Latino Los Angeles.” The panel is moderated by Knatokie Ford, founder and CEO of Fly Sci Enterprise.
What defines L.A. Cuisine, and how does Los Angeles culture influence it? How have small businesses been affected by the pandemic, especially in communities of color, in L.A. and elsewhere? How are essential workers in the food industry surviving? How does L.A. food help Los Angeles recover?
Before the discussion, groove at home with DJ Sammi G and prepare a special cocktail presented by Elle Nucci. After the discussion, enjoy a performance by Automatic, a DIY post-punk trio comprised of Izzy Glaudini (synths, vocals), Lola Dompé (drums, vocals) and Halle Saxon (bass, vocals).
Watch the preshow Secrets from the Vault, exclusive for NHMLAC members, with KT Hajeian, the museum’s collections manager of anthropology, to learn about the collection she oversees and discover details hidden in plain sight.
