Held at a beautiful private home in Santa Fe
A farm-to-table dinner celebrates two families and cultures, the Coelho Family from Bombay, India and the Littlebird Family from Pueblo Indian ancestry. The event is a Benefit Fundraiser for Tano Farm at Hamaatsa (www.hamaatsa.org/TanoFarm), a 501c3 non-profit that addresses food insecurity in Indian country and other food deserts in underserved communities in New Mexico.
This story dinner launches the HEIRLOOM FOOD AND STORY SERIES,which rekindles sharing our cultural legacies around a family-style dinner table, deepening our connection to land, story, heritage and each other.
Home chefs, Tanveer Coelho and Deborah Littlebird share East Indian family dishes and farm-to-table fare with Southwest Native inspirations featuring heirloom and organic foods from local New Mexico farms. Together, they have created an exquisite five-course summer repast with spoken word performances featuring master storyteller, Larry Littlebird (Laguna/Santo Domingo Pueblo) and award winning writer/director, Shebana Coelho (Bombay, India).
The cost for the story dinner event is $95 per person.
Seating is limited to 30.
