Food, Jazz, Poetry and Fashion

Tomorrow a group of women will step away from the kitchen and give their men all the space they need to whip up some fancy dishes for a taste and entertainment evening. The men who love to cook will outdo themselves as they prepare dishes synonymous to many cultures.

It’s all part of The Afrikan Poetry Theatre Inc., 33rd anniversary fund raiser celebration. To mark the occasion, director John Watusi Branch has revived the “Creative Cuisine – Brothers Who Cook,”  so male members could display their culinary skills.

Some 22 brothers who love cooking and creating exotic dishes will display their culinary skills in preparing a variety of dishes that will reflect the food cultures of the Southern United States, West and East Africa and the Caribbean. Some will prepare meals indigenous to different cultures, some will prepare their favourite dishes while others will face the challenge and cook as many dishes as they are allowed. All dishes will be prepared at their homes and brought to the fund raiser.

The menu will include rice prepared in different ways, pasta dishes including lasagna, meat dishes; chicken, beef, pork; vegetable dishes; cakes and desserts and some surprise dishes.

And while guests sample the delicious food they can enjoy soothing jazz music, poety recitals, and then oooh and aaah over the lovely models in the fashion show.

The Afrikan Poetry Inc., is a non profit organisation that provides cultural, educational, recreational and social programs for members of the community.

The fund raiser takes place tomorrow from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Theatre at 176-03 Jamaica Avenue, Queens. For ticket information call 718-523-3312.
