Cache Cache, a collective of four women that hosts one-of-a-kind experiences marrying film and food, was born after a raclette party for 20 that co-founder Rosey Alvero threw for her husband’s birthday. When someone put a movie on a projector, it clicked that her passions for film and food could be combined. Four years later, she and her cohorts have put on events at Sweden’s Gothenburg Film Festival, the Court Tree Collective in Brooklyn, and the Mar Vista Art Department in Los Angeles. Their latest production, Saltwater Soiree, which took place in Malibu, was inspired by a screening of the movie Chasing Coral. "I thought about how I could recreate the stunning corals and their ecosystems on a table that everyone would just eat off of," says Alvero.
Cache Cache's latest production is a documentary series called Foodprints. Each episode will take viewers on a journey across borders to explore a single ingredient's impact on people, culture, environment, and policy. "Did you know that an agave plant can be used to make tequila and a surfboard? Or that the humble banana is responsible for toppling a government?" asks Alvero.
Alvero is also an avid traveler. In 2017 alone, she adventured to Peru, where she started the year in the Andes mountains overlooking Machu Picchu, then trekked to Cuba, Iceland and several national parks across the United States, including Yosemite, Death Valley, and Alabama Hills. Citizine caught up with Alvero to find out where in Los Angeles she loves to explore. Check out some of her favorite spots—if you can keep up!
