An interesting social interest project called “What’s Cooking in the Bronx” will combine food, conversation, and art in the abandoned Andrew Freedman Home. Developed by Puerto Rican artist Sofia Maldonado and as a part of No Longer Empty, a contemporary public art organization, this food event will combine a kitchen mural, live cooking experience and a discussion of Latin cuisine and traditional cooking.
Bringing street art and cooking performances that weekend, Maldonado aims to rediscover traditional Puerto Rican food in a new community setting. Family culture and the passing down of recipes, Empanadas will take the main focus and the hundreds diverging recipes will be explored.
A nutritionist will also be on hand after the workshops to further help those interested in pursuing a healthy diet and lifestyle. And for who wants only to relax, the evenings are filled with a movie schedule that deals with food, mood, family and tradition.
Leading up to the event, No Longer Empty’s facebook is asking fans to submit empanada recipes which will end up in a recipe book, available for all participants and visitors.
April 20t and 21st 2012
Andrew Freedman Home, 1125 Grand Concourse, The Bronx NY
The cooking workshop is limited to 15 participants each, RSVP at email@example.com
