La Cocina’s Food + Entrepreneurship Conference, August 17


Here in San Francisco, you are just as likely to find bacon on the table, as you are to find chicharrones or choila. At the heart of this city’s diverse food culture are the enterprising culinary entrepreneurs from all walks of life. As local, small-batch, and artisanal foods trends are capturing everyone’s attention, the question remains, can you make it making great food? Since its inception in 2009, La Cocina’s Food & Entrepreneurship conference has looked at how we can best cultivate food entrepreneurs and how that in turn results in thriving and inclusive communities.

Join La Cocina on August 17th for a Sunday Thoughtluck discussing the future of food systems, alongside food entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, city officials, culinary experts, and community organizations from all over the world. Alongside thoughtful dialog and hands on workshops, there will be an Art+Food Expo, and of course, oodles of eats!


Your  ticket will include a full day’s menu of conversations, activities and opportunities to meet people who are all working on food and entrepreneurship, as well as breakfast, lunch and happy hour. The ticket cost is meant to keep this conference accessible but does not fully cover the cost of the event. Donations to La Cocina are appreciated. Click here to buy your ticket today!
