URGENT: VENUE CHANGE

URGENT CONFERENCE UPDATE – VENUE CHANGE

The conference is moving to NAC Architecture at 837 North Spring Street in Chinatown.

We didn’t think it would be 100 degrees in October…but that’s what it may be on Saturday. As a result, we have had to adjust the event location. We want to thank Tibbie and Katie at A+D. They have been incredibly supportive and honest about their evolution in a the new museum space. They have been a tremendous partner to Territorial Repercussions.

We are shifting gears just days before the event. Please help us spread the word.

Register today! Only a few spots remain.

Mauro Daniel Rossi announces menu for Territorial Repercussions

We are so honored to be able to work with Chef Mauro Daniel Rossi on a menu for the conference. Rossi is also the Director of the Culinary Program at the Art Institute of California, Hollywood.

The concept for the meal was to present a fresh take on some classics of a diverse Southern California cultural history. Working with locally grown produce, Rossi has created a collection of salads and light dishes that speak to something uniquely Angeleno.

Hoppin’ John Salad
Sea Island Red Peas, Carolina Rice

Carribean Cucumber Salad
Cucumber, Garlic, Cilantro Dressing

Watermelon Salad
Watermelon, Pickles

Green Beans and Tomato Salad
Roasted Tomatoes, Pole Beans, Benne Seeds

Curtido
Pickled Cabbage Salad

And if you arrive early, he’s also preparing some morning biscuit / cookie to go with some good coffee complements of our friends at Pasquini.

 

Paula Daniels Opens the Day

Paula Daniels has been a force in shaping the way we view the city and the infrastructure of the city. She has been a catalyst in public policy and government in several key positions including Public Works Commissioner for Los Angeles, a Senior Policy Advisor on Food and Water to Mayor Villaraigosa, a Senior Fellow on Food Systems, Water, and Climate to California Governor Jerry Brown, the Pritzker Environment and Sustainability Education Fellow, and most recently as the Executive Director of California Central, A Villaraigosa Initiative at USC. As the founder of the Los Angeles Food Policy Council, she has forever changed the way we consider food and the health of the city as a part of the constellation of public / social issues. We welcome Paula Daniels to Territorial Repercussions as a launch to a provocative day of discussion and debate.
