La Tropi Kitchen Brooklyn, NYC
Updated: Oct 16
Through her project La TropiKitchen, Stephanie Bonnin makes handcrafted Colombian food and sells it from her apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Before COVID-19, Stephanie hosted pop-ups and dinner parties, but since the start of the pandemic, she's sold her arepas, enyucados, bollos, pasteles, and more directly from her bedroom window. Stephanie travels throughout Colombia to learn from local women about her country's varying culinary histories, from the Andes to the Amazon to major cities, then she takes this knowledge back to New York.
