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.

Our party takes place twice a year at All Saints, Harrison Center, 1342 Lancaster Ave, in Syracuse. Next one is on Saturday, October 1 from 5-8 pm.  

(We used to do them more often, but these days we're pretty busy opening up a Teaching Restaurant & Entrepreneur Incubator with OCC Workforce Development over on North Salina Street; more on that soon.  Cool, huh?)

Anyhow, back to the party:

Tickets ($25) go on sale 2 weeks before & are limited to 125 arrivals per hour. 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, in a separate kitchen) 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..
