People

Our party happens twice a year.  The food rocks.  The people rock even more.

Most of our team have arrived in town as refugees, but others are here as students, via lottery or have roots going way, way back to before we were even a country.  Whatever the case, here's the upshot:    

It's fun to work with people from all over.  And it's good to be reminded what a resilient, imaginative, welcoming species we can be.

We are SOLD OUT.

But join us in 2017 for popups on Saturday, February 4 Saturday, October 7 (both from 5-8 pm @ All Saints, Harrison Center, 1342 Lancaster Ave,, Syracuse.)  Come February we have beautiful, homestyle cooking from Afghanistan, Burma, The Gambia, South Sudan & dessert from Syria. (October menu's still a work in progress.)

Tickets ($25) go on sale 2 weeks prior & are limited to 350.  

Kids 10-14 are $10.  Younger kids?  Pay whatever you think is fair. Former/future MLT chefs + a guest come for free.  

No need to print out a receipt; we'll have your name at the door.

Tickets include visits to all 5 food stations & a cool nonalcoholic beverage. Unless it's pork (which we do but rarely) all meat is halal.  Beer from Griffin Hill is a little extra.  Absolutely everything we give you - cups, forks, you name it - is compost friendly.  Just bring it back to the bar when you're done & we'll schlep it to OCCRA.   

If you have a food allergy shoot us an email & we'll try our very best to accommodate you..
