Crop & Cuisine: Comida del Campo: Discada Cooking Workshop, an outdoor cooking event – Saturday, May 6

May 3, 2016

Join us on Saturday, May 7, 2016, 11am-1pm, for the final part of the Crop & Cuisine series at Branigan Cultural Center, hosted by La Semilla Food Center.

The program is free, but registration is required. You may register just to join us for the meal, or for the cooking class, limited to 30 participants. Call 541-2154 to register or come by the Branigan Cultural Center.

Making and eating food together is a core part of human experience everywhere, but nowhere is this more true than in the transitory communities of migrant farm laborers. Join us to hear stories about the heart of the community of those who harvest our food and then learn to make a delicious meal on the disco, a staple of outdoor cooking in the Southwest.

The Branigan Cultural Center received the six-part, NEH-supported documentary film “Latino Americans,” created for PBS in 2013 by the WETA public television station. The award-winning series chronicles the history of Latinos in the United States from the 16th century to present day. (Learn more about the series at www.pbs.org/latino-americans/en/.)

The Branigan Cultural Center is joined by a number of community partners on this grant: the Amador Hotel Foundation, Community Cornerstones Partnerships, La Semilla Food Center, NMSU Museum, and Thomas Branigan Memorial Library, as well as a number of other regional scholars, organizations, and community members.

Latino Americans: 500 Years of History has been made possible through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association.

The museum is located at 501 N. Main Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm, Thursday from 10am to 8pm, and Saturday from 9am to 4:30pm.  For additional information, visit the website at: http://las-cruces.org/museums or call 575-541-2154.

If you need an accommodation for a disability to enable you to fully participate in this event please contact the museum 48 hours prior to the event.
