Home is Here NOLA, a local nonprofit with a mission to cultivate community-based systems of support with newly arrived immigrants in Louisiana and the Gulf South is excited to present a Taste of Afghanistan on Tuesday, October 17 (4-7 pm) at Saint John (1117 Decatur Street). The evening will feature a tasting menu of home cooked dishes by Afghan refugee chefs who will be present to introduce their food, culture and experience as new community members resettled in New Orleans. All event proceeds will benefit Home is Here NOLA.
Tickets ($35) are available at https://givebutter.com/HHNOLA-Taste or in advance or at the door and include a welcome cocktail and tasting menu highlighting the Afghan national celebratory dish, Khabuli Palao (veg and non-veg), Mantu (beef dumplings), Borani Banjan (Roasted eggplant casserole) and Bolani (Afghan flatbread). Home is Here NOLA will be on-hand to provide refugee-related information and resources to all interested attendees. Generous sponsors include Cheramie Rum.
