About Food & Folklore
Food & Folklore is a project that pays homage to indigenous food, farm traditions, and food producers – primarily those from the non-European diasporas. We honor the food-ways of natives, elders, immigrants, farmers, fisherfolk, and the unspoken keepers of food traditions from across the globe, right here in the metropolitan city of Boston through culinary classes, pop-up dining with the goal of opening a Diaspora Test Kitchen and restaurant incubator space.
About The Awafi Kitchen
This is where Arab and Jewish cuisine are one in the same.
We are cousins of Iraqi Jewish diaspora, making meals as a tribute to our heritage. We host narrative food events in restaurants across Boston, as well as the greater Northeast . All of our family left Iraq between 1950 and 1970. Much was left behind, but not the food. Our menus are recreations of the meals we grew up eating as children, and the stories they heard of food in the old country. We are cooking to preserve the lesser known pieces of Jewish history, and Iraqi history. Plus, share some delicious recipes with our community.
