A Midwinter Afghan Feast

A belated happy new year! We have a delicious 2018 in store, and we're incredibly excited to be kicking it off with the remarkable Naseema, who arrived less than a year ago from Afghanistan with her six children. She's a graduate of the Emma's Torch culinary training program for refugees, works full time at a Manhattan restaurant and is taking her day off to prepare the foods of her homeland for you! Please join us for a warming winter feast accompanied by abundant punch and wine.
