Beat Swap Meet is where I made my public cooking debut. Last year Utmos hit me up about sidewalk cheffing it up during the Beat Swap Meet to feed the hungry diggers. I used to offer like 20 things on the menu but that became too complicated. This time around I narrowed down the choices and really put my foot in it. Here’s what I had on the menu for the day…
