We're offering two chances to attend dinner parties showcasing exquisite chefs and cuisine.


On November 8th, join Chef Arazoo Ibrahim for a multi-course journey through Kurdish cuisine and culture. Arazoo will combine traditional Kurdish flavors with unique cooking styles to create fresh, unique, and truly authentic dishes. 

In January 2017, Arazoo and her family were en route Nashville when they were turned around during their layover in Cairo due to Trump's first Muslim Ban. After a campaign to get Tennessee members of Congress to intervene, Arazoo and her family were granted clearance to travel to Nashville. More than 200 Nashvillians greeted her family at the airport as they arrived in Nashville on Superbowl Sunday. 

Join us for dinner, drinks, and a discussion with Arazoo.
