Sharing their thoughts at the discussion will be Traci Des Jardins of Jardinière and Mijita Cocina Mexicana, Karen Lebiowitz who co-authored Mission Street Food, Jesse Hirsch, who among other foodie ventures writes our weekly Seven-Day Dish newsletter and is the Food Writer at the East Bay Express, and executive director of La Cocina Caleb Zigas.
