Love, Food, Love was equal parts cooking show and theater performance, and above all, an interactive experience where audiences connected around our love of food, our stories, and the similarities among our different cultures. As his alter ego Mero Cocinero, Robert Karimi served up his distinctive brand of humor, good recipes, stories, and tips on eating better. Using theater, storytelling, and cooking together, Karimi and The People’s Cook remind us of the joy of eating and all the cultural rituals embedded in sharing meals.
