Just Cook It! Foods of the Americas
Just Cook It events are potlucks. They are free to attend. Just RSVP to this ticket so we know how many people we’ll be hosting. This year, each Just Cook It potluck will take place in a different location, this one will be in Winooski. These events are always packed and promise a good time, so if you haven’t attended one yet, please do!
Chiles, chocolate, wild rice, potatoes, tomatoes and maple are just some of the Americas’ native foods-Europeans hadn’t tasted them until after the Spanish conquest of the New World. From Incas to Abenaki, indigenous food traditions have changed the way the world eats. Bring a dish made with just indigenous ingredients if you can, or one that highlights one of your favorite foods of the Americas. Extra points for drinks made with indigenous ingredients, such as chicha, mezcal, pozole, and pulque!
We look forward to seeing you there!
