May 28,2021 – May 28,2021 all-day
Empowering the Diner
Virtual Event

Empowering the Diner is a Black women-led food and beverage event centered on collaboration and inclusion in which they bring folx together to discuss, learn, and explore their palate and dining experiences. Empowering the Diner seeks to dismantle colonizer-led perspectives and gatekeeping practices by challenging the status quo through creative, multi-faceted, and BIPOC-led educational and hospitable experiences. The first educational experience will be: Empowering The Diner Through Wine. This will be offered on a virtual platform called Hopin. Empowering the Diner Through Wine will be a four-week experience. This offering will be conducted in four sessions. Each session will include one full bottle of wine, a pairing BIPOC chef's recipe, and feature educational dialogue with a BIPOC wine professional. The second session will further discuss wine as an agricultural product and touch-on Justin's experience as a Black femme winemaker. You will continue to focus on challenging existing tasing notes and help you develop notes that align with your personal experiences. You will also talk about how you can own what you like and stand strong in that when ordering & buying wine. Speaker will be Justin Trabue and guest chef will be Krystal Mack. $55 for this session only, or $110 for an all-access pass to all four sessions ($80 for BIPOC). Taught on Friday, May 28th, at 8:30 p.m. EST.
