While Philadelphia Assembled was at the Perelman Building, there were new smells and tastes emerging from the Philadelphia Assembled Kitchen. Imagined by Pascale Boucicaut, Kristin Schwab, and Shanti Mayers, together with cooks from across Philadelphia, the cafe was transformed into a Philadelphia-based culinary experience. 

In partnership with W/N W/N Coffee Bar, the Philadelphia Assembled (PHLA) Kitchen offered recipes and dishes curated and prepared by a group of twelve culinary artists, cooks, and storytellers residing in Philadelphia. PHLA Kitchen served up rotating menus inspired by poet, playwright and chef Ntozoke Shange’s inquiry into what food we, everyday people, cook to “celebrate our victories, our very survival.” Drawing from culinary traditions from across the city, PHLA Kitchen was a space for sitting with each other – individuals from different communities, with different experiences and backgrounds–and learning about our unique and overlapping histories of survival, resistance, and victory.
