The Rooted Andina 7.27.24

Join us Saturday night for an immersive Indigenous chef’s table experience as the sun sets to give way to the stars and the garden lights flicker on.

Once you have received your welcome beverage, you will be invited on a brief walking tour of our growing space Pachamama5453. This is the home to our pending non-profit Indigenous science education micro-farm. Our front-of-house captain and co-conspirator in P5453, Alejandra, will chat with you about the crops being grown this season, how the community helped us with construction, and our plans for the future.

Once seated for dinner, Chef Andrea and team will share four courses of Indigenous ingredients tracing the etymology and culture of key pre-colonial crops. Learn how and why we created our unique leche de tigre the way we did and why that cake is so tender.
