Narrative Cuisine: A Taste of Tanám with Ellie Tiglao and Anjimile ($)

  • Harvard Northwest Science Building 52 Oxford Street, Suite B143, Room B145 Cambridge, MA, 02138 United States (map)

Join the Food Literacy Project for a performance and dialogue on the intersection of food and art, featuring cutting-edge chef Ellie Tiglao and folk singer-songwriter Anjimile! This event will be a preview into a new type of dining experience pioneered at Ellie's new restaurant, Tanám. Tanám will be the only restaurant in Boston (and within 200 miles) to serve Filipino American cuisine and cocktails, using a model they call "narrative cuisine" that brings together chefs and artists to craft coursed dinner experiences that tell stories that are historical, cultural, personal and political. For this event, Ellie's food will be accompanied by a live performance from Anjimile. Anjimile is a queer and trans songwriter/folk singer/lover boy with a heart of gold. As a first-generation Malawian-American raised in the suburbs of Richardson, Texas, their experiences with racism, homophobia and xenophobia in the deep south and beyond have helped to form the basis of their radical queer politics. The essence of their musical output is a gooey center of warmth and tenderness informed by the power of their intersectional identities. Join us for this dynamic dialogue!
