Rainier Beach Community Kitchen: Lunch in Lemuria
Lemuria is considered a fabled lost land of paradise. Indigenous peoples of South Asia, South East Asia and the Pacific Islands are considered descendants of Lemuria.
Join us for a meal from the Lemurian region where you’ll enjoy seafoods, veggies and fruits, as well as delicious things cooked in coconut milk or wrapped in banana leaves. There will be vegetarian, gluten free and pescatarian options.
The guest chef who will be hosting this meal is Tuesday Talaga, a Filipina artist, activist and mother born and raised in the Queendom of Hawai’i. She is honored to bring her Lemurian spirit to the table in hopes to connect with all the people from across the globe who across the ages came through the lands she is from and those she was raised on.
She hopes this will be an afternoon of connection for all and a chance to further shed light on the magical diaspora she belongs to and all they have come to offer the world.
We ask that you RSVP (below) for this free, family friendly event so we can have a good head count.
