La Cocina serves as a resource for women of color and lower-income women who want to start a food business. Rosie Ortiz sure could cook, but she needed to learn business and other kitchen skills she didn't already have in order to get Mission Boricua off the ground.
In this podcast, Rosie talks about her experience in the La Cocina program, which she began three years ago. She hopes to launch her food truck later this summer. Oh, and Rosie's pop-up restaurant is open every Wednesday from 11 to 1 at Homey, 2221 Mission Street near 18th.

We recorded this podcast at Rosie's home in Richmond, California, in April 2019.
