For our March Demo & Dinner event, we’ll bring the pages of Kwame Onwuachi’s “My America: Recipes from a Young Black Chef” to life. Join us for a ‘pop-up’ experience right in our kitchen, immersing yourself in the rich tapestry of American food that transcends borders and cultures.

“My America” beautifully weaves together the culinary heritage of Chef Kwame Onwuachi’s family, spanning Nigeria, the Caribbean, the American South, and beyond. This cookbook serves as a connection between ‘food and place’ and ‘food and culture,’ offering a diverse and flavorful journey that mirrors the melting pot of American cuisine.

This event is more than just a meal; it’s an exploration through the pages of a cookbook, a celebration of cultural diversity, and an experience meant to be shared with others. We’ll showcase the preparations, demonstrate techniques, and provide insights into what makes each dish special.

After the demonstration, we’ll all gather around the dining table to share and savor each meticulously crafted dish. It’s a moment of unity and connection as we collectively experience the flavors, stories, and traditions that make “My America” a culinary masterpiece.

Join us for an evening where the recipes come to life, and every bite tells a story. Reserve your spot now for a culinary journey that embraces the diversity of American cuisine.
