Description (no more than 300 words)

Come experience the relationship between immigration and food and how U.S. Culture was introduced to new things in history. In a sit-down tasting meal, sample a variety of foods from our neighborhood while sharing a discussion about food’s role in immigration history, the neighborhood, and wider American culture. Your tour starts with a visit to 97 Orchard Street and continues with a sit-down tasting meal and discussion. As the group tastes the flavors of the Lower East Side past and present, share stories about culinary experiences and listen to interviews of local store owners whose businesses created the foods on the menu.
