No celebration is complete without fun!

Join a live cooking demonstration with Adobo-Fish-Sauce on Thursday, May 12 at 2PM ET / 11AM PT

There’s so much beauty in giving circle communities gathering around a table, sharing a meal and building true relationships as we discuss the issues that matter most.

At We Give Summit, Adobo-Fish-Sauce will lead a live cooking demonstration with poetic invitations. Adobo-Fish-Sauce: a duo artist project by Ricky Orng and Anthony Febo, practices discovery, healing, and self-preservation through spoken word and their relationship with food, culture, and heartbreak.

Join us to prepare white rice and beans for lunch! You’ll need two (2) stirring spoons and two (2) pots with lids/covers. You must register for We Give Summit to attend.

    as you pour out the water, give gratitude to that which no longer serves you.

  • Add Garlic and while waiting for garlic to sizzle, wash the rice.
  • Washing the Rice – One Cup per person – in a strainer.
    Wash the rice in a circular motion under the faucet while repeating with three breaths – I can clear the cloudy.
  • When rice is washed and garlic starts to sizzle, add Potato next along with half of the Tomato Sauce to give something for the potatoes to cook in
  • Add Onion into the pot and the rest of the tomato sauce
  • Add 1/2 cup of stock (veggie or chicken) and the beans.
