The Rooted Andina: History Colorado Night 5.31.24

Join us for a very special Vinyl Viernes in partnership with History Colorado on May 31 at 6:00pm. In this immersive Indigenous chef’s table guests will have the opportunity to walk the Pachamama5453 land, home to our pending non-profit Indigenous science education garden. Chat with Chef Andrea about the crops being grown this season, how the community helped us with the build out and our plans for the future.

Once guests sit down 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.

Elevating Indigenous culture through food and education

This unique knowledge exchange experience is an opportunity to explore Native Indigenous culture through Indigenous science and food. Your host, Andrea Condes, is a transracial adoptee from South America who is reclaiming her own Andean Indigeneity through cooking and farming.

Mission: To create a full cycle system on one plot of land as a way to exhibit Indigenous agriculture, sciences and foodways and facilitate cultural education through immersive food experiences and workshops.

Goal: To create a sustainable and healthy ecosystem utilizing Indigenous knowledge on one plot of land that can then be translated to community members in a safe and cultural space, as to sustain a 12-person gathering space.
