$5 fee (includes the bread-making materials and honey)
Event hosted by Nadezhda Savova
(Ph.D. candidate, Cultural Anthropology, Princeton University &
Founder of the Bread Houses Network, www.breadhousesnetwork.org)
We will all make bread together from scratch around candle-lit tables, learning about bread’s different elements as symbols in various cultures and as metaphors for human relationships. While baking the bread, we will relive the birth of samba in Brazil from people playing kitchen utensils. We will improvise rhythms with our own plates, pots and graters as the aroma of hot bread infuses the space and inspires us. The event culminates when we break hot bread together and share it with one another.
At the event, we will present and launch the kickstarter campaign to build a Mobile Bread House, a community space on wheels, in the New York – New Jersey area on a retrofitted school bus featuring a traditional wood-fired oven and a green roof to bring the joy of collective bread-making to disadvantaged communities in the area.
Please bring your favorite kitchen utensils. All ages welcome. For more information, please email: email@example.com
