Last night, Nigerian-born writer and chef, Tunde Wey convened a group of Bay Area diners, residents and journalists for his, Blackness in America Dinner Series. The San Francisco-event, his 15th of the year, was both timely and discomforting. Food has never been immune to sociopolitical unrest, and in most cases, tends to reflect the conditions. According to Wey, "the era of dining as protest is now." 

Led in conversation by Chef Wey, and hosted by SF-based nonprofit, La Cocina. Here’s a look at some of what was served.

Sautéed Dandelion Greens, Fried Plantains, Mac n’ Cheese

Fatoush w/ Black-eyed pea pepper stew
