La Cocina [Lore Gablier/Alejandro Ramírez] organises dinner events, lectures, performances, screenings and discussions that explore deeper into the kitchen, asking questions like: What surrounds a kitchen? What do our appetites tell us about taste and infrastructure? What do our food and recipes mean for our identity?
