Amid today's anti-immigrant rhetoric, Cooking With Granny celebrates the immigrant grandmothers who make up the multicultural fabric of New York City and the U.S. overall. Join us on Monday, March 5th at 6:30pm for a special collaboration between Cooking With Granny and Essex Street Market, where we'll pair enriching immigrant stories with mouthwatering homemade dishes -- prepared just for you by a grandma!

For this event we welcome Grandma Sara, a Honduran immigrant and descendant of the Garifuna people, whose ancestry is of indigenous Caribbean tribes and African slaves that settled on Central America's coastlines. Today about 100,000 Garifuna people live in NYC's South Bronx, Harlem and East New York. And they brought their recipes with them. 

Grandma Sara will share her family's famous coconut rice and beans, and cook her sweet sizzling banana fritters. Don't be afraid to come up and mash those bananas with us! Our co-host Caroline Shin, founder of the Cooking With Granny web series, and Grandma Sara will also be serving up the delicious stories around Garifuna heritage and Sara's newfound roots in New York.

Tickets are $15 and include a sample of Grandma Sara's coconut rice and beans, as well as a fresh banana fritter hot off the pan!
