Please join us on Thursday, September 28th from 6-8pm for BAC Folk Arts Society Meeting #8: Putting a Fork in Folklife, with special guests The League of Kitchens.
We'll be joined by Lisa Gross, The League of Kitchens Founder and CEO, and Sonya Kharas, Program Manager, for a discussion about authenticity, cross-cultural social networks, and workforce development.
The League of Kitchens is a unique New York City-based cooking school where immigrants teach intimate cooking workshops in their homes, and participants encounter new cultures, cuisines, and neighborhoods. Each experience offers opportunities for meaningful connection and social interaction, cultural engagement and exchange, culinary learning and discovery, and exceptional eating and drinking. The League of Kitchens builds cross-cultural connection and understanding, increases access to traditional cooking knowledge, and provides meaningful, well-paid employment and training for immigrants.
In every League of Kitchens cooking class, the immigrant is the expert, the teacher, the host, and the cultural ambassador. This is not a service experience. Participants cook together, eat together, and clean up together. Everyone contributes to the conversation and shares their own stories and expertise. There's no better way to get to know a person and their culture than by cooking and eating with them in their home.
To RSVP or to receive updates and invitations to future meetings, email BAC Folk Arts Director Christopher Mulé at email@example.com.
