The SALO Project and Feastly | Filipino Pop-ups

We decided to throw our own meal, inviting friends and neighbors to celebrate with us. I learned something that Thanksgiving – food is a wonderful connector.

What is most rewarding about your current role as ‘Head Chef/Janitor’ at the Underground Nosh? It was hard to …
