This program is a series of summer activations for Aquí y allá: juntos a la mesa (Here and There: Together at the Table).

Local chefs discuss their use of local food sources.

Join artist Evelyn Rydz and co-host Ellie Tiglao, chef and co-owner of Filipino-American restaurant Tanam in Somerville. Surrounding the Aquí y allá installation space, edible plants are grown. Participants are invited to enjoy the harvest by garnishing their dishes with herbs grown on site, and join in community story telling about ancestral food and narrative cuisine.
