Greetings all-- I received the following e-mail about this event, and thought it might be of interest to some folks on this board.
Join us Sunday, January 18 from 3:00-4:30pm for spicy conversations, delectable demonstrations, and tasty treats with ethnic food manufacturers from countries historically part of the Silk Road.
The afternoon will feature Brooklyn manufacturers with roots from Italy to China, including Richard Radutzky from Joyva, Mark Lii of Ten Ren Tea and Ginseng Co., Dennis Halaby of Damascus Bakery, and entrepreneurs
from Bukhara Sweets and Koi Japanese Market & Gallery.
Using the Silk Road's symbolic meaning of sharing and exchange as a point of departure, we'll explore the relationship between food and identity and discover how ethnic food manufacturing helps Brooklyn's
diverse immigrant communities maintain traditions while offering opportunities for cross-cultural fusion.
Produced by City Lore and the Brooklyn Historical Society. For further information regarding the program or for directions, please call 718-222-4111, or visit www.brooklynhistory.org
