This month's feast is different in so many ways. First of all, we're moving the feast outdoors! To a backyard in Bedford-Stuyvesant. And this month's menu highlights a variety of Persian and Georgian grilled meats, including classic marinated shish kebab, and a pair of Georgian sauces.
Fear not! There will be plenty of vegetables to accompany the smoky skewers. And chilled sweets to end the night!
