Sicily Sierra has always been fascinated by how food and people intersect and how meals turn into a tradition. She followed that desire and enrolled in Le Cordon Bleu’s culinary arts program. Sicily and her mother co-founded Pinky & Red’s as part of La Cocina’s incubator program. After working for The Cooking Project, teaching young people valuable cooking skills, she worked at Reem’s in the Bay area. Today, Sicily wants to create food that fosters a space for the community to come together to enjoy one another’s company over dishes that are an ode to her ancestry, an edible piece of culture deeply tied to place and family
Sweet Pea & Pancetta Risotto is the May Recipe!!
