Rooted Recipes Project x Forging Our Futures: A Virtual Performance Showcase

APICC is proud to feature the Rooted Recipes Project as part of the 24th annual United States of Asian America Festival: Forging Our Futures - SoMa & Chinatown

Join the Rooted Recipes Project (RRP) for a night of virtual storytelling. With a worldwide pandemic and the onslaught of anti-Asian violence leaving our communities devastated, RRP is re-envisioning how we can hold space during this pivotal moment in time. Though we won’t be able to serve up a physical meal, we’ll be serving up food stories that’ll just be as emotionally and spiritually nourishing to highlight and support our beloved neighborhood, Chinatown. We aim to create a space for our collective grief, our joys, and everything in between.


The Rooted Recipes Project is a collective founded by Kim Boral, Joseph Nontanovan, Aileen Suzara, and Thuy Tran, all who work within the food world and are also artists and organizers within their respective communities. It is our connection through food and shared stories that we may reclaim our past in order to move towards a liberated future.
