Lopate and Locavores: Eating Around the World
Leonard Lopate's Popular Food Series Returns Oct 7, 14 and 21
Wednesday, October 07, 2015
Going out to a restaurant can be a way of traveling around the world without setting foot on a plane. But do you ever get the feeling that, even here in New York where we have access to every cuisine imaginable, they're only serving up Americanized versions of what you’d find abroad?
This October, Lopate and Locavores invites international culinary experts to share the authentic dishes from their countries that you wouldn't find in a restaurant.
Join us for three special nights of culinary conversation and cooking demonstrations hosted by WNYC's James Beard Award-winning host Leonard Lopate.
