Cultural Cuisine: Pâtes et Traditions, French Restaurant


Event Details

Date: 03/04/19 Cost: $27 Time: 6:30 PM Location: Williamsburg, Brooklyn

"The food we have together at Cultural Cuisine is just the tip of the iceberg. Students and scholars from across the world gather around the same table to not only discover more about food, but to also dive deeper into their own cultures and learn about each other's history, traditions, values, and much more. They feel at home away from home and build lifelong friendships." Student from Afghanistan

Cultural Cuisine is back and we're going to Pâtes et Traditions! Romane, our Global Fellow from France, is excited to take you to a charming French restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and introduce you to her favorite food that she and her family enjoy back home! 

This culinary trip around France will start off with specialties from the sunny Mediterranean Coast and its flavorful blend of aromatic herbs, tomatoes, and olives. We will then head North to the cooler coasts of Normandy and Brittany for their traditional sweet and savory "crêpes & galettes" one of the all-time classics of French cuisine!
