Transplanting Traditions Community Benefit Dinner

Tuesday October 7th, 2014

Lantern Table is delighted to host Transplanting Tradition’s farmer/chef Khai Nyui Tow for a celebration of Karen Burmese food to support aspiring refugee farmers in Orange County.
This five-course dinner will feature rare and delicious southeast Asian ingredients including water gourd, Thai pumpkin, pennywort, lemongrass and roselle buds, all grown by Karen refugee farmers. A short presentation and documentary screening with the Transplanting Traditions Youth Team will follow the meal.
100% of proceeds benefit the farm in its work to provide agricultural resources and education to refugee farmers at its 4-acre incubator site just south of Carrboro.
