Curated Cuisine is a monthly series where renowned chefs, both local and national, share their food philosophy, their career journeys, and what they learned during the pandemic.

Join us for a conversation with Biplaw Rai and Kwasi Kwaa, managing partner and chef partner of Comfort Kitchen, a restaurant celebrating the flavors and ingredients of the African diaspora, set to open in Boston later this year. Irene Li, co-founder of Mei Mei Restaurant Group and Prepshift, moderates.

In-person attendees will enjoy jerk jackfruit sliders from Comfort Kitchen after the event.

This event is co-produced by Boston University Metropolitan College Programs in Food & Wine.
