Taste of Black Austin is a culinary event that explores the narrative of economic development through the historical context of food. The event will open with an intimate reception on January 31, 2017 at Peached Social House featuring savory hors d'oeuvres prepared by nine of Austin’s favorite Black chefs and a curated photo exhibition showcasing Austin's unique food history dating back to 1870.
Event tickets are available for $65 and community sponsor tickets are available for $120 and include a VIP cooking demonstration preceding the reception. A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit Urban Roots. In 2008, Urban Roots began as a program of another youth development nonprofit to empower and develop Austin youth and promote healthy lifestyle choices.
Taste of Black Austin allows our guests the opportunity to taste various hors d'oeuvres that have been recreated to chronicle Black food history in Central Texas from 1870 to present. The menu will feature bite sized portions of dishes found in archived recipe books and historic menu selections.
