Global Cuisine—Abuelita’s Kitchen: Mexican Food Stories

March 4, 2023 | 2:00PM - 4:00PM



Join us at the Fowler for a screening of Abuelita’s Kitchen: Mexican Food Stories (2022), directed by Ebony Marie Bailey and produced by USC professor of food studies Sarah Portnoy. The documentary shares the food stories of 10 Indigenous, mestiza, Mexican-American, and Afro-Mexican grandmothers in Los Angeles, including their personal journeys as immigrants, and their knowledge of traditional dishes. These grandmothers have cooked, preserved, and passed on Mexican food traditions, while creating communities and cultures unique to Southern California. A post-screening conversation with producer Sarah Portnoy and film participants will follow. Afterward, join us for Mexican food and drinks in the Fowler courtyard. Space is limited for this in-person program. RSVP is required.

This program is presented in partnership with the EatWell Pod of the Semel Healthy Campus Initiative Center at UCLA, which is envisioned and supported by Jane and Terry Semel.

Parking available in UCLA Lot 4, 198 Westwood Plaza, directly off Sunset Blvd; $3/hr or max $14/day. Rideshare drop-off at 305 Royce Dr.
