From Africa to Asia, South America and beyond, the Tubman African American Museum plans to take you on a culinary journey- one that will tantalize your taste buds, as well as showcase the multi-cultural aspect of the museum.
On Sunday, June 22nd, 2014, several local chefs and “celebrity chefs” will set up tables at the Tubman Museum.
The idea is to showcase comfort food, or soul food, from various cultures. Sponsoring this event is BB&T.
A wide variety of foods will be available for sample, including foods from Nigeria, Jamaica, Egypt, Spain, Thailand, China, “Southern” American as well as traditional “Soul Food” favorites.
Guests can take a culinary journey around the world, as well as view one-of-a-kind pieces of art from the Tubman’s permanent and changing exhibits.
What participants can expect at this event is a wider variety of countries represented, as well as new downtown restaurants getting involved.
Staff and volunteers will be available to share their expertise with guests – education and outreach opportunities, special events, and membership options will be available.
Cost for the event will be $25 and includes a tour of the museum, food, entertainment, a signature International Taste of Soul drink, door prizes, discount in the gift shop, as well as opportunities to learn more about the Tubman African American Museum.
