2022 Virtual Gala Film Premiere: Taste of the Tenement
Wednesday, June 1, 2022, 8:30 - 9:15pm ET
Free/Suggested Donation; Ticket Options Available
For our gala celebration this year on June 1st, 2022 we’re inviting everyone to the table for a “taste” of the tenement!
Be a part of our biggest fundraising event of the year by registering for our free/donation optional virtual gala film premiere inspired by Hulu’sTaste the Nation.
The special 45-minute film Taste of the Tenementwill take viewers on a culinary journey of tenement life. We’ll explore the food traditions that were passed down to the descendants of the Museum’s tenement residents, and the broader connections made between neighbors, restaurants, and businesses through the Great Depression, the Kosher Meat Boycott, the growth of Manhattan’s garment industry, and more. The film will use cooking demos of historic and archival recipes, oral histories, scholarly interviews, and special guests Padma Lakshmi and Michael W. Twitty, author and culinary historian, to create a full course meal of the American experience through the lens of food.
Glimpse into what awaits in the new trailer for Taste of the Tenement!
