Ayesha Curry Zooms Into Washington on Behalf of Hungry Kids

Plus Martin Yan remains a legend, and more intel

No Kid Hungry
  • Ayesha Curry is a culinary entrepreneur with a line of cooking tools, a magazine, and cookbooks, but she’s also the co-founder of Eat. Learn. Play. and an ambassador for No Kid Hungry. Yesterday she focused her energy on that cause, testifying (virtually) in front of the House Rules Committee on the childhood hunger crisis in the US and calling for more support for the programs that feed America’s children. Full video is here.
  • Here’s your daily reminder that Martin Yan is a Bay Area legend and that his cooking show has launched a thousand ships. Check out this informative profile on the chef whose show Yan Can Cook has influenced generations of chefs, and given Chinese cooking a voice in America. [SFGate]
  • An allegedly intoxicated driver totally decimated the outdoor dining setup of La Frontera Mexican Restaurant, the popular quesabirria destination on Oakland’s International Boulevard, reports Berkeleyside. Owner Valentino Carrillo says neighbors have been very supportive and offered to help rebuild, though he’s still not sure if or when that will be possible. Meanwhile Carrillo’s other business, Que Rico, remains intact and unscathed by cars. [Berkeleyside]
  • Another sad closure: This time it’s the 40-year-old Marina restaurant, Ristorante Parma. Tomorrow, April 30, is the last day for the family-run restaurant. Owner Angela Elia says the closing “breaks my heart,” but that it must be done for her wellbeing after a year of emotional ups and downs. Head in for a last lasagna bolognese to say goodbye.
