Remember Anderson Pereira? We interviewed him in 2019: He’s a Brazilian skater who grew up in a favela with few opportunities, selling drugs and working in gangs until he came to America and used skating to open doors. Now he lives in LA, hustling and getting flow from good brands like Fucking Awesome and Adidas.

Anderson first saw footage of the legendary Embarcadero when he was just a kid in São Gonçalo, Brazil. EMB is where Carroll, Sanchez, Watson and Kelch reigned in the early ‘90s; and nearby on the other side are the concrete manual pads/ledges at Pier 7, where Lavar McBride, Karl Watson, and Stevie Williams did stylish lines that seemed like they could’ve gone on forever.

Anderson made his way over to San Francisco recently, and took a pilgrimage to the Embarcadero neighborhood to pay homage to the spots and skaters that made him want to skate hard enough to get as good as he got. He even souped up (or souped down) an old VHS camera just to get the early 90s vibe just right.

JENKEM – Cooking Brazilian Cheese Bread w/ Yaje Popson | jenkemm…

jenkemmag – Since we’ve all been on various degrees of quarantine across the world, we’ve all had to improvise on meals, whether that means ordering out every meal on seamless, or finally trying our hands out in the kitchen. We knew it was the perfect time to get Yaje to throw on the figurative chef’s hat again and show us how to make something easy yet tasty, right at home. This time around Yaje showed us how to make pão de queijo, a traditional baked good found all over Brazil. Its texture and flavor are truly unlike anything else we’ve ever had, and for the health nuts out there, it’s gluten free so you don’t have to worry about farting all night.
