In this installment of Talk&Taste: Evenings at Essex Street Market, we're focusing on the African diaspora in New York City, and how chefs, restaurateurs, business owners, and historians are all working to preserve their diverse food traditions.

We're thrilled to have Kamau Ware moderate this talk; Kamau is a visual storyteller and former educator at the Tenement Museum whose latest project, Black Gotham, strives to answer the question: Where are Black people in the history of NYC? We'll also hear from Essie Bartel, founder of Essiespice, whose blends and sauces are a tribute to her Ghana heritage; and Din Yates of Cheeky Sandwiches, a beloved sandwich shop on the LES featuring the best flavors of New Orleans.

Join us for this very special event on Tuesday, February 28th! Registration is free but RSVP is required.
