S2E27, Part 1: Rosie Ortiz on Growing Up in the Mission and Teaching Herself to Cook (Part of Our La Cocina Series)
Film photography by Michelle Kilfeather
Born and raised in the Mission District, Rosie Ortiz learned to cook by watching her mother.
In this podcast, Rosie, the owner of Mission Boricua, talks about San Francisco back in the day. She says that, over the years, her love of cooking evolved to the point where she found herself making more and more Puerto Rican dishes (Rosie is half-Puerto Rican herself).
Join us Thursday, when Rosie will share stories about going through the La Cocina program and getting Mission Boricua off the ground.
We recorded this podcast at Rosie's home in Richmond, California, in April 2019.
