Company of Scholars invites you to an Excursion to the Lower East Side Tenement Museum for an after-hours encounter with the culinary traditions of an immigrant mecca. Food and memory, meals and storytelling, kitchen conversations, and culinary entrepreneurship will be on offer at a Delancey Street table. You will be treated to scrumptious offerings from the Lower East Side’s melting pot. All are welcome, but seating is strictly limited and advance pre-registration is required. (This is a family-friendly event and the Tenement Museum welcomes children 8 years old and older for this program.)
This event will be held Monday evening on June 15th from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Buy your tickets below or on our Eventbrite page:
Taste a variety of foods from the neighborhood while exploring the influence of immigrant culture on what all Americans eat. We will begin our evening with a visit to the historic tenement of 97 Orchard Street and continue with a sit-down tasting meal in the Tenement Museum’s private dining room overlooking Delancey Street. As we taste the flavors of the Lower East Side past and present, we’ll share stories about our most memorable culinary experiences and bear witness to testimony of local shop owners who trade in the foodstuffs on offer. This intimately-scaled enrichment program will focus on immigrant culinary traditions on New York’s Lower East Side.
This culinary adventure is co-sponsored by Foodtober, a slate of delectable events on food culture, science, policy, entrepreneurship orchestrated by the Yale Alumni Association of New York in October and beyond.
