Our next photo exhibition will be by the lovely and talented Aya Brackett in a show titled Home is Oakland, Home is Japan. Professionally, Aya’s food photography has been published in The New York Times, Monocle and Bon Appetit, and for this show, Aya has chosen select pieces that reflect domestic moments in California and Japan. Capturing kitchen scenes in Oakland, or at her grandmother’s and friend’s homes in Tokyo and Kyoto, Aya’s photos are at once intimate and playful.
Alongside the opening reception this Friday 2/1, we will also host an udon pop-up with Aya’s brother Sylvan of Peko-Peko! We had a similar event with Sylvan in December which was a great success, and we are so excited to do it again. Sylvan’s hand-pulled udon is seriously delicious and there’s nothing better than having a roomful of people walking around and slurping noodles.
