From the Palace to the Street: The Role of Iraqi and Ethiopian Food on the Global Culinary Landscape

Imagine a world without sandwiches, coffee, and ice cream cones. While these American staples have been around for centuries, their roots are in the homelands of today’s largest refugee communities.

In this engaging and interactive discussion, award-winning author, chef, and culinary expert Amy Riolo reveals how the kitchens of Baghdad’s medieval palaces and the traditional coffee ceremonies of Ethiopia sparked culinary trends that the whole world enjoys today. Long before members of these communities arrived on American soil, we were enjoying their foodstuffs in our own homes. As many new refugees continue to call America home, our culinary landscape continues to be enriched by new tastes and traditions. Learn how these trends are becoming part of our country’s culinary landscape and how immigrants adapt their recipes to fit into American culture.

History Happy Hours include complimentary happy hour drinks and snacks.  This series is sponsored by Therrien Waddell Construction Group.
