S2E25, Part 1: Bernadine Sewell on Going Through the La Cocina Program (Part of Our La Cocina Series)
Film photography by Michelle Kilfeather
Bernadine Sewell has an alter ego: Pinky Winchester. When you meet this incredibly colorful woman, you know why.
She and her daughter went through the La Cocina program and opened their restaurant, Pinky and Red's, in the Berkeley Student Union building last summer. This podcast is Pinky's story of growing up in Detroit, moving to California, going through La Cocina, and opening her own business, which, it turns out, is only the second black-owned business on UC Berkeley's campus since 1868.
Join us Thursday when Pinky will share stories from her first year running Pinky and Red's.
We recorded this podcast at the Berkeley Student Union in the MLK Building in April 2019.
