Sunday Supper and Family Lore
Sunday, April 11, 2010 at 6pm First Person Arts invites you to share your family recipes and stories at a family-style Sunday supper at Bridget Foy’s restaurant. Bring your family or join ours!
Suzan Colón, author of the new food memoir Cherries in Winter, joins First Person dinner guests to share stories about food and family. Cherries in Winter recounts how Colón turned to her Nana’s recipe collection for home-cooked meals after losing her dream job. What started out of financial necessity became a source of comfort as the recipes revealed and deepened connections between memory, family, and tradition.
Bridget Foy’s will be creating a special 3-course menu for the event based on Colón’s family recipes.
Split Pea Soup with grilled ham and frizzled leeks
Cadillac Meatloaf with bacon, mashed potatoes, and asparagus with Crimini mushroom gravy
Apple Cake with spiced pecans and nutmeg whipped cream
For vegetarians, we will offering Tomato Fennel Soup and Eggplant Napoleon with provolone, broccoli rabe, and roasted peppers in a marinara sauce.
And all diners get a complimentary glass of wine!
