About Roxana Jullapat and Sonoko Sakai:
Roxana Jullapat and Sonoko Sakai have been joining efforts since 2012 with the goal of building a community around the subjects of ancient grains, good food, and sustainability. Sonoko is a cooking teacher and writer who is currently working on her second cookbook “Rice Craft: Delicious adventures in Onigiri, Japan’s artful finger food” (Chronicle Books). She looks forward to making onigiris at the Brunch Pop Up to introduce eaters to these peculiar Japanese snacks. Until recently, Roxana was the pastry chef at the highly regarded Cooks County restaurant. She left in December of 2014 to spend her energy on new projects. She’s thrilled to be making her well-known biscuits, donuts, muffins and scones at the Brunch Pop Up at elysian.
