David Orozco

Family Style

Seattle restaurant owner David Orozco grew up in Guadalajara where everything was grilled over charcoal – a distinct taste that he recalls and tries to emulate in his food today at Asadero. This episode explores how David found a welcoming and curious culinary community in Seattle that has allowed him to introduce the flavors of Mexican ‘Norte’ to the Northwest and carry his family legacy forward. Enjoy Family Style. This series was produced in collaboration with VICE.

Mutsuko Soma

Family Style

Born and raised in Tochigi, Mutsuko Soma had to rethink everything about cooking soba noodles when she started cooking in Seattle. She has adapted her grandmother’s soba noodle recipe, that she still makes by hand and from scratch to the local ecosystem; along the way, becoming one of the city’s most lauded chefs with her restaurant, Kamonegi.

Chera & Geo

Family Style

For Chera Amlag and Geo Quibuyen, food is their connection to their Filipino heritage. While they can’t always travel home, they have always injected classic Filipino flavor into everything they do to help their family maintain a strong relationship with their homeland. That practice has led to Instagrammable ube cheesecakes that have become so famous in their neighborhood (and beyond) that it inspired their bakery’s name: Hood Famous. Enjoy Family Style.

Donna Moodie

Family Style

Seattle’s Donna Moodie was born in Jamaica and immigrated with her family to the U.S. when she was a young child. She found her way into her mother’s kitchen at an early age, but what left the biggest impression wasn’t just the food, but her mother’s gracious hospitality – always hosting dinner parties and finding room for one more guest at the table. Today, Donna has brought that legacy forward in her own restaurant Marjorie, a neighborhood jewel that welcomes all. Enjoy Family Style. This series was produced in collaboration with VICE.

David Nussbaum

Family Style

Aviv Hummus Bar has one of the biggest lunchtime rushes in Seattle’s Capitol Hill thanks to Israeli owner David Nussbaum. David immigrated from Israel with his parents in the 1980s, and he’s been back to his homeland almost every year since. Not sure exactly what he wanted to do as he grew up, he had always been especially in love with Israeli food. He spent five years figuring out how to open a restaurant while perfecting a hummus recipe that reflects his roots. Enjoy Family Style. This series was produced in collaboration with VICE.
