Event Style: Tapas & Drinks
Sobremesa, literally “over the table,” is a word that describes the ritual of families and friends lingering over a meal to chat -- often into the early morning hours. It’s when the food coma kicks in, but you just want to relax and be in each other’s company, occasionally picking at leftovers or refilling your glass. In honor of Asheville’s vibrant Latinx/Hispanic community, this event will celebrate the rich and diverse food traditions that stretch from Mexico to the Southernmost tip of Argentina. The meal will be accompanied by a thoughtful conversation highlighting the role of immigration in our region’s foodways. Moderator Cass Herrington, reporter for Blue Ridge Public Radio, will be joined by Marianne Martinez, executive director of Vecinos; Sergio Fernandez, executive director of El Centro; and others for an engaging conversation.
