Chefs cook up political comedy, real food

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.”

The presentation is part of the United States of Asian America Festival. Performances are at 8 p.m. Saturday and May 15-17 and 7 p.m. Sunday and May 18 at SomArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan St., San Francisco. Tickets are $18 to $20. Call (415) 864-4126 or visit www.apiculturalcenter.org.
