CultureHouse: Climate, Seasonality, and Authentic Cuisine

  • CultureHouse 500 Kendall Street Cambridge, MA, 02142 United States (map)

Join us for a pop-up dinner event at the CultureHouse in Kendall Square. Sam Musher from Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW), an organization building neighborhood climate resilience, will facilitate a conversation surrounding the ideas of climate change and seasonality. Additionally enjoy authentic Ethiopian cuisine prepared by Meqdes, an Ethiopian immigrant . The meal served will be vegetarian in order to promote and understand how our food impacts our climate.

Meqdes will be cooking the following Ethiopian delicacies:

  • TIKKIL GOMEN ( ጥቅል ጎመን ) : Braised cabbage cooked with potatoes and carrots, rendered with complex flavors by the herbs it is cooked with. This is a vegan dish.

  • MISSIR WOT ( ምሥር ወጥ ) : A spicy lentil stew, slow cooked to achieve the warm complex flavors infused with a variety of herbs and spices. This is a vegan dish.

  • TIMATIM SELATA ( ቲማቲም ሰላጣ ) : Tomato salad.

All dishes are served with injera.

NOTE ON POSSIBLE DIETARY REQUIREMENTS. The MISSIR WOT is spicy. The other dishes are not. Gluten free injera is available if requested ahead of time. There are no nuts used in the cooking; however, the food is prepared in a kitchen where nuts are used.
