We’re so thrilled! It's time for another collaborative vegan dinner experience, hosted by our friends at Viva Raw, on Thursday, September 19th at 7th Street Public Market. And just like last time, there's a philanthropic twist!
The theme for the evening is “Decolonized Caribbean Cuisine", featuring Chef Julio of OMG Alchemy + Chef Brandon of the Charlotte Herbal Accessibility Project, and supported by us - Executive Chef Julia + Sous Chef Sara! This special dinner will open with a "happy half hour" where we will serve light hors d'oeuvres and Fonta Flora beer while guests mingle and enjoy sounds curated by Claudio Ortiz, and will then follow it with a unique 3-course sit down dinner.
Here’s a sneak peek at the delicious menu —
Hibiscus Deep Infusion Foraged Malagueta, Cinnamon, Sugarcane
Mangu Taro, Local Poleo, Local Brujo Oregano, Cabo Rojo Salt
Course One: Plantains 2 Ways Local Callaloo, Mojito, Local Verdolaga, Local Oreganillo
Course Two: Rondon Tamal de Arroz con Gandules, Bixa Oil, Local Aji Dulce and Moringa Sofrito, Local Recao
Most importantly, this dinner will be a benefit for Brandon’s not-for-profit, the Charlotte Herbal Accessibility Project! We appreciate all the good work he is doing in Charlotte and are eager to support his mission of providing easy and affordable access to herbal medicine for residents in low-income and marginalized communities.

All in all, a great way to enjoy fabulous food while supporting one of Charlotte's fastest-growing not-for-profits.
