Seaweed soup making is an act of ceremony, it is honoring birth, ancestral lineage, and reclaiming resilience and wellness. You are invited to join Los Angeles based Master Food Preserver and professional cook Hae Jung Cho with fellow Master Food Preserver, Palliative Care Nurse and artist Roshni Kavate for an afternoon of soup making and story telling.

We will dig deeper on how we can connect with our ancestral wisdom to reclaim wellness, preserve traditions and foster kinship with our ancestors and our land.

Food is a connection to our past and daily act of nourishment. We will ponder how to keep our collective traditional wisdom alive and what it means to feed ourselves, to nourish ourselves.
