MOFAD, the Museum Of Food And Drink is for MOTHERS!

New in-person program!
SALVISOUL Flavors and the Women Who Preserve Them with Karla Tatiana Vasquez and Jessica Hoppe
Friday, May 24, 7:00 PM 
MOFAD @ DUMBO ( 2nd Floor, 55 Water Street, Brooklyn, NY)
In this collection of eighty recipes, Karla shares her conversations with moms, aunts, grandmothers, and friends to preserve their histories so that they do not go unheard. Here are recipes for Rellenos de Papa from Patricia, who remembers the Los Angeles earthquakes of the 1980s for more reasons than just fear; Flor de Izote con Huevos Revueltos, a favorite of Karla's father; as well as variations on the beloved Salvadoran Pupusa, a thick masa tortilla stuffed with different combinations of pork, cheese, and beans. Though their stories vary, the women have a shared experience of what it was like in El Salvador before the war, and what life was like as Salvadoran women surviving in their new home in the United States.
MOFAD is excited to welcome Karla Tatiana Vasquez in celebration of her new cookbook, THE SALVISOUL COOKBOOK. She will be joined by Jessica Hoppe, Honduran Ecuadorian writer and creator of @NuevaYorka, for a conversation about the flavors of the Salvadoran diaspora and the women who preserve them.
Doors will open at 6:00 PM to allow ticket holders to tour our current exhibition,  Flavor: The World to Your Brain. The program will start promptly at 7:00 PM.
Tickets also include the option to purchase Salvisoul by Karla Tatiana Vasquez from our bookseller partner Kitchen Arts & Letters.
Celebrate mom this Mother's Day with a trip to MOFAD to experience Flavor: The World to Your Brain. Come early or stay late and grab a snack and drink at TimeOut Market (located on the first floor below MOFAD). Get your tickets below or in-person at our front desk!
