Food People Are The Best People

Food People Are The Best People

Food People are the Best People -- by Oakland photographer and visual storyteller Kristen Loken -- shares the stories of how chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers, farmers and purveyors cooked, comforted, and created through crisis. 

A portrait of strength and resilience through one of the toughest times in our history, the book features 129 food/beverage industry pros, including Alice Waters, Charlie Palmer, Tanya Holland, Michael Tusk, Sarah Kirnon, Nelson German & Matt Horn -- all leaders in the food world. These reflections and photographs are a testament to our collective experiences and appreciation of our connection through food.


With a portion of proceeds going to No Kid Hungry, this book highlights some exceptional people and helps with food insecurity in our communities.
