EMW Presents Adobo-Fish-Sauce
A one of a kind multisensory experience. This interactive multicultural cooking show fuses spoken word poetry and food as a vehicle for storytelling, healing, and celebration. A Puerto Rican and a Cambodian walk into a kitchen. The kitchen is your heart. The food is made with food. The food is sometimes poems. Either way you are fed. Join Adobo-Fish-Sauce in their kitchen, where the audience is family, and everyone has a seat at their table.
