"Cooking with LACMA invites chefs and culinary historians to teach recipes related to artworks at the museum. Join Jocelyn Ramirez of Todo Verde, a plant-based Mexican food company, for a live cook-along inspired by Frida Kahlo’s painting Weeping Coconuts (Cocos gimientes)!
The program will start with an introduction of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s work and those that portray the artist in LACMA’s collection, presented by LACMA educator Vivian Lin. Then Chef Ramirez will demonstrate step by step how to make vegan coconut flan.
Prepare the ingredients (listed below) ahead of time and cook with us! Ask Chef Ramirez questions about the recipe as you cook along.
