The new documentary 'Cooked' travels the globe as well as to Berkeley, but at its heart the message is simple: cooking is an essential need and pleasure for a balanced life.
BERKELEY SPARK FESTIVAL The Berkeley Spark 3.0 Arts and Innovation Festival will bring artisans, innovators and nonprofits to Civic Center Park on Saturday for a community-based, participant-driven event that aims to connect the great East Bay. The festival features local independent makers with a focus on sustainability and originality. It also serves as a place for fans of the Burning Man culture to gather, and for those who are heading to the desert to stock up on gear and accessories. Civic Center Park is at Martin Luther King, Jr. Way and Center Street. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Learn more at berkeleyspark.org. (more…)
The Berkeley writer talks about his top take-away from learning how to cook, and why he thinks cooking may solve many of our problems.
