#985 – Real Foods Real Kitchens 'International' Premier

An exclusive screening of Real Foods Real Kitchens 'International' "Cuba" episode followed by a discussion with producer and creator Craig Chapman. For the first episode in this series, the show traveled to Cuba and sat down with a family to get an intimate look and taste of traditional Cuban food and drinks.

"This will be the first full viewing of an episode from what I am hoping will be an entirely new series of Real Food Real Kitchens episodes from countries around the world", said Chapman.

Real Food Real Kitchens tells the intimate story of a person, their family, and their culture, and how food creates an emotional bond that connects them all together. It's not just another cooking show, but a lasting documentation of family traditions that are often lost. 

Free admission. Cash bar. Seating is first-come-first-serve.

This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Caminos Transitados / Paths Taken: A Retrospective of Francisco “Gordillo” Arredondo Baba Oñi, on view January 16 - March 13, 2016.
