Chefs Mero Cocinero Karimi and Comrade Cocinero Castro dish up Iranian-Guatemalan-Filipino food, political discussion, cultural consciousness and humor in “The Cooking Show,” which arrives in San Francisco this week fresh from off-Broadway and other major venues.
The chefs create revolutionary recipes onstage, serving up stories and delicious culinary samples, guaranteeing a taste for every audience member. The Associated Press called the show “a globally flavored recipe that packs some punch lines.”
