This second summer social programming for LGBTQ Jews of color session will center on the co-creation of a small meal, with dishes representing our multiple identities! Upon registration, you’ll receive a recipe for a simple vegetarian entrée. Two weeks before the event, we’ll reach out to two registrants (surprise!) for an easy-to-make (make in under 20 minutes) dish that represents their cultural expression. A week before the event we’ll send out the recipe/ingredient list including the entrée again, a side dish, and a dessert that we’ll spend the session cooking together, with help from the two registrants. We also encourage folks to come with another side dish of their own already made and ready to share with the group. Of course, we’ll end the session dancing it out with happy bellies!
