. 1500+ cookies and many, MANY hours later. This isn’t even all of them as some were still in the oven getting baked. Such an honor to work with @jseicommunity to create the dessert for their 30th Annual Crab Feed. I’m proud to work with a local, nonprofit cultural organization that does so much for the elders of the Japanese community and the community as a whole. Especially in a time when Asian Americans, especially our elders, are more vulnerable than ever and facing violent, racist attacks. J-Sei is a bright spot in what continues to be a very dark time for Asians in the U.S. From their website: “J-Sei is a multi-generational and multi-cultural organization with its roots in Nikkei values and culture... Our commitment to serving seniors is unwavering, but we are broadening our impact by serving our multi-generational and multi-ethnic community.” Big thanks to Chef Yuji @ishikatanotabekata for putting me in touch and not only letting me use his kitchen, but making sure I had more than enough space for making all of these! Standing and working where he has, I have a whole new level of respect for everything he does there for the community. An incredibly talented chef that can make magic out of anything. ありがとうございました #japanese #nonprofit #community #asianamerican #bayarea #bayareafoodie #sesame #miso #blacksesame #matcha #cookie #cookies #bake #baking #baker #bakersofinstagram #eeeeeats #nottoosweet #dessert #desserts #igfood #foodstagram
Love, joy, vulnerability live in a space Black fathers make so their children can grow and be brilliant. The Center for Cultrual Power presents “Black Daddy,'' a music video created by Oakland’s own @damedrummer , Tommy Shepherd @emceesoulati and their children Little Tommy, Little Dame, and Demi Sauce directed by Salvatore Fullmore. The “Black Daddy” music video uplifts true narratives around Black Fatherhood which celebrates the strength and commitment of Black Dads.  “Black Daddy” celebrates the power of art and music in strengthening bonds with our loved ones. To create as a family is to heal and celebrate life, our resilience, community and connection to home.  Every day Black fathers show up with an abundance of love, joy, and vulnerability for their children and create space for learning and creativity that is passed down through generations.  Directed and Edited by Salvatore Fullmore @slvtrfilms Written and Performed by Dame Drummer @damedrummer and Tommy Shepherd @emceesoulati Music by Dame Drummer.
