Tangra Summer, brought to you by Diana Kuan & Chitra Agrawal, is a vegetarian, seasonal Indo-Chinese feast at the historic Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum, New York City's oldest house and first official landmark, built in 1652. The meal will feature 7 dishes served family-style that highlight the summer’s bounty. Your dinner will also include local beers from Big Alice Brewing based in Long Island City. Part of the meal will feature Indian vegetables grown locally by Wyckoff's head gardener Jason Gaspar.
Dinner will be served at 6pm, but doors will open at 5pm so you can come view the farm, hang out in the garden, drink beers, and play lawn games (bowling, bocce, and horseshoes.)
Ticket price includes: A spectacular communal Indo-Chinese dinner set in a 17th-century farmhouse, beer from Big Alice Brewing & plenty of fun to cap off the summer.
Tangra is an Indo-Chinese pop up celebrating fresh ingredients grown locally. It was founded by Chitra Agrawal (the Indian half) of The ABCD's of Cooking and Diana Kuan (the Chinese half) of Appetite of China and Brooklyn Atlas. The food pays tribute to Tangra, a Calcutta neighborhood that is home to generations of Hakka Chinese and a cuisine that is a perfect mix of Chinese food traditions and Indian ingredients.
