Pop-up dinner and conversation. Open Kitchens Project event in Somerville at Paul's home. For the first time Open Kitchens is offering Zimbabwean cuisine cooked by Tatenda, an immigrant from Zimbabwe. Tatenda, an intersex woman, will also curate the conversation. She is an asylum seeker with a passion for motivational speaking and believes nothing gets a conversation going better than delicious food on the table. She’ll invite us to explore ‘dualistic thinking’ and the ways it inhibits new ideas…and conversation. She'll suggest open questions to help us connect with other guests quickly. Limited to twenty guests. Your seat at this event is not guaranteed until you receive a final confirmation email.
Tatenda’s menu for the evening:
FAT COOKS - Minced curry filled appetizer
SADZA - A flavorful side dish made with cornmeal (Gluten free)
NYAMA YEHUKU - A traditional chicken stew slow cooked with herbs and spices that offer it a unique flavor. Vegetarian alternative with meatless mince/beefless meat is available upon request.
MURIVO NEHOHWA (VEGAN) - Spinach and mushrooms with flavors by the herbs it is cooked with. (Vegan)
QUEEN CAKE WITH ICE CREAM - Dessert is not commonly expected, but life in modern Zimbabwe includes ice cream!
