Monthly Speakers

Next Meeting: April 18 2019


Speaker: Kiki LeSeed

Topic: Cooking Mushrooms in Japanese Cuisine

Join Kiki LeSeed and SOMA for a delicious live cooking demonstration. Come learn some recipes and methods with mushroom varieties you already know, and come experience some new mushroom varieties you may not know!
Best of all, tickle your tastebuds with samples of the recipes Kiki cooks with her mother.
In an effort to be as Zero Waste as possible, please bring your own small tasting bowl and utensils. Shroom on, my friends!


Kiki is a second-generation Japanese-American who credits her love for food and cooking to her mother.
