The HOME Refugee Steering Committee at Lynden and Tables Across Borders invite you to join us for the fifth and final episode of our virtual 2021 season of our community cooking series. Coordinated by Kai Gardner Mishlove, Tables Across Borders is a global food collaboration that highlights the cuisines of refugee chefs by linking great chefs together and creating connections to Milwaukee-area restaurants, such as Amilinda, The Tandem, Tricklebee Café, and beyond. With restaurants closed during the pandemic, TAB is sharing the skills of its chefs through these online cooking classes. The community cooking series is an opportunity for chefs across cultures to share tips and recipes from their own cuisines while also allowing us to explore how cuisines cross-pollinate as people migrate and need to adapt techniques and ingredients in a new homeland. Cooking is a place where we interact, exchange, borrow, and invent and imagine new ways of being with each other.

In this episode, we feature head chefs Abdul and Zinath from Myanmar as they put together a curry dish, with special ingredients from the Southeast Asian/Asian region. Originating from the Indian subcontinent, curries are made according to one's personal preference and regional blend of spices and herbs, though it is universally known that the essential ingredient must be curry leaves. Its base can range from coconut milk, tomato paste, puree of vegetables or broth of sorts, or simply what is known as a "dry curry" liquified with a small amount of water. Join Abdul and Zinath in their pursuit to making this essential Asian dish, along with participating chefs from various refugee communities in Milwaukee, include Tables Across Borders chefs Ifrah Yusuf (Somali), Abebech Jima (Ethiopia), Hasina Begum Ashraf Mia (Rohingya), Paw May June (Karen), and Tahani Fadel (Syria). Co-sponsored by Our City of Nations (OCON).
