Event description

Description

Chefs: Tu Phu, Denise Huynh, Hai Lam
Partner: AnewAmerica
Venue: Bauman College

Join Slow Food East Bay for the next in our 2019 series celebrating diverse culinary traditions!

Sunday September 29, join us to eat a delicious Vietnamese family style meal while three (!!) amazing chefs share their stories; Tu Phu of Top Chef, Denise Huynh of Tay Ho and Hai Lam of Eating Saigon. We'll talk about the importance of elder knowledge, of passing down food traditions in order to ensure they are served for many generations to come.

Slow Food East Bay’s upcoming series of events celebrates the cultural food traditions of immigrants and displaced people, learning how food helps people stay connected to homeland and also engage with new communities. Attendees will be inspired by stories from chefs and community organizations, learning how diversity and migration have helped our food system evolve.... And, frankly, be more delicious!

Speaking of delicious, our final menu for the evening is in the works but note that there will only be two vegan dishes on the menu, most dishes will contain shellfish of some sort (flavoring agent, sauce, topping) and there will be chicken, pork and duck. Gluten free folks will have lots to choose from!

Our partner organization for the evening is AnewAmerica. They change lives by creating economic opportunities for targeted communities. Many women, minorities, and immigrants face economic insecurity with no means to accumulate wealth. AnewAmerica leverages entrepreneurship to train and coach individuals to start their own business to support economic growth for themselves and their communities.

Pricing: We're committed to being and building an inclusive community while also making the event sustainable for the chef. Everyone is welcome at our table and to help that happen we are offering sliding scale tickets prices which include dinner, drinks (alcoholic & non) & stimulating discussion.
$85 - A portion of your ticket subsidizes someone who can pay less.
$65 - If you earn a living wage this ticket helps the chefs do the same.
$45 - Join Us! We are grateful that you choose to spend your money on this important work and are excited to have you at the table!
If you are feeling inspired to come but $45 doesn’t work, please email us at slowfoodeastbay@gmail.com

As our political discourse gets more polarized, it becomes ever more important to have places where we can have meaningful connection discovering inherent connections to one another. Join us for an evening of delicious food paired with just as delicious conversation, leaving with both your belly and mind full.
