We're excited to welcome chef and food writer Sara Calvosa Olson (Karuk) in celebration of her debut cookbook Chími Nu'am: Native California Foodways for the Contemporary Kitchen. In her sumptuous debut cookbook, Sara reimagines some of the oldest foods in California for home cooks today. Meaning “Let’s eat!” in the Karuk language, Chími Nu’am shares the author’s delicious and inventive takes on Native food styles from across California. Sara will be in conversation with Native foods educator, speaker, and author Valerie Segrest (Muckleshoot).
You'll have two options for joining us: Book Included, or Author Talk Only. The Book Included option includes a signed copy of the $40 book. Sara will sign books following the talk.

About the book: Sara has spent many years connecting her family’s foodways with a growing community, and these recipes, techniques, and insights invite everyone to the table. Designed as an accessible entry for people beginning their journey toward a decolonized diet, Chími Nu’am welcomes readers in with politically attuned and irresistibly funny writing.
