Date Idea, Drinks, Food, Good for Groups
Curated Cuisine is a monthly series at WBUR CitySpace examining all things edible, from the chefs cooking the food to the writers reviewing the recipes. Meet the people shaping the food industry, both local and national and enjoy a post-show bite inspired by the conversation.
Hetty Lui McKinnon views food as a gateway to deeper understanding and connections to her family, friends and community. The Australian born author and chef once shied away from her Chinese ancestry but now, she embraces her heritage through food and cooking. McKinnon, a regular contributor to the New York Times, Bon Appetit and Epicurious, is a long time vegetarian who at an early age prepared and delivered salads via bicycle in her Sydney neighborhood. Her new book, “Tenderheart: A Cookbook About Vegetables and Unbreakable Family Bonds,” is at once a tribute to her immigrant father and Chinese family and also a celebration of food.
Join Tamika Francis, founder of Food & Folklore, for a conversation with McKinnon and a demonstration of her technique. Copies of “Tenderheart” will be available to purchase from our bookstore partner Brookline Booksmith. McKinnon will sign after the conversation and in-person attendees will enjoy a bite from the book.
Premiere: $25.00 (includes reserved seating in the front of the theater)
