Diaspora speaks to the dispersion of populations from their indigenous lands, usually by forced migration. And as both history and modern cuisine testify: where people go, food goes with them. In this way, culinary meetings and mashups from across the globe have resulted in the flavor and richness that is modern food. Join Chow Chow for an event exploring both the origin and the fusion of cuisine, an edible query into what is lost and what is gained when food and people migrate. Taste the stories, and enjoy a conversation led by Meherwan Irani - of the award-winning Chai Pani Restaurant Group and Luis Martinez - Chef & Corn Scout - Tequio Foods, exploring each chef’s own unique story of migration and culinary influence on their journey to become who they are now.
