Hearty Tables is an online cooking and storytelling series featuring immigrant and refugee chefs.
Food is universal, but the culture of preparing it is unique to each community. In celebration of World Refugee Day 2020, WeaveTales has partnered with the Museum of Science & History in Jacksonville and We Are All America to hold a 6-week video series that brings together storytelling and cooking.
Starting on May 30, each week, an immigrant chef will share stories about families, the journey to America, and how cooking has inspired them as they build a new life in a new country. The goal of the program is to embrace diversity by encouraging a deeper understanding of cultural differences through food and storytelling.
Each chef will share their recipe and ingredients days before the show so that viewers who tune in may participate in the cooking class. WeaveTales will be taking questions from the audience and asking them to the chefs as they prepare their recipes during the show to make it interactive.
RSVP is required. Registrants will receive information on how to access the show prior to the event.
