From Other to Us
From other to us is a dinner series and community gathering that brings together foreign-born chefs and pittsburghers. through collaboratively cooking a communal meal and sitting down to eat together, we learn about each other and what a ‘taste of home’ is to each of us.
From other to us: a taste of home
On Monday, July 16th, we hosted our first From Other to Us Dinner event — a hands-on cooking experience led by Syrian Community members, in partnership with the Pittsburgh Food Policy Council, Threadbare Cider and Mead, and the amazing Nayla Abu Hamad! From Other to Us: A Taste of Home was inspired by a program in Berlin called Über den Tellerrand (Beyond the Plate), whose mantra is to use "food as a means for cultural exchange." The event was made possible by funding from LUSH, which includes mini grants that will be awarded to local Syrian chefs.
