Join us for an evening of food and discussion with Eric Rivera, Executive Chef at Seattle’s Bookstore Bar & Café. Eric, a graduate of the culinary school at the Art Institute of Seattle, traces cooking back to when he was a small child. Growing up in a Puerto Rican family that celebrated food, Eric often cooked with his grandfather. Despite his early connection with the kitchen, Eric pursued jobs in mortgage and insurance. But eventually he found himself drawn back to food.

After years of working his way up the culinary ladder, his new job at Bookstore Bar & Cafe, allows him to play to his guests’ sense of discovery. “It’s an exploration of the whole flavor spectrum, where you can go from sweet to savory to sour in one bite,” he says. “We have all these great local ingredients at our disposal, and we’ll be highlighting flavors of the Pacific Northwest – but in a way that will feel fresh and new to locals and visitors alike.”

Over a traditional Puerto Rican meal prepared by Eric, we will discuss how we can learn about ourselves and one another through food, and how building bridges through food. During the meal we will break out in small group discussions and play with the magic of food and storytelling to connect us in our vulnerability and shared humanity.
