Second Annual Kinosayo Family Potluck
Save the Date!
On February 1st, 2024, we are welcoming families and friends to join us for a special evening of community and togetherness at our Second Annual Kinosayo Family Potluck. This event will coincide with our Kindergarten Open House for prospective new families.
Please, join us for a delicious meal, shared together on a wintry night. You are also welcomed to come and enjoy the food, and if you would like, you can bring a dish of your choice. It could be a dish you love to share with others, a dish that has a special meaning for you and your family, or a dish that your family just loves to make. All food is welcome!
We would also love to create a Kinosayo cookbook to share with all our families, so if you would like to bring a dish, you are invited to share the recipe, too. You are invited to share a recipe even if you are unable to come on the 1st.
Because food is an expression of community and culture, we would also like to create a compliment to this cookbook that is oral, offering you the opportunity to speak to the significance of the food, why it is special to you or your family, even why it is culturally or ethnically meaningful. And because we know that sometimes the meaning of things is best conveyed in one’s mother tongue, we would love for that oral piece to be spoken in the language of your choice, with a translation offered in print for those of us who do not know your language. No ordinary cookbook will this be, but a very special one indeed.
Please let us know if you're planning to attend the potluck on this Google Form. (It helps us to plan how many tables and chairs we should set out.)
Please send any questions you may have to Suraiya Rampuri Ranson. Many thanks, and cheers to spending a lovely evening together in February!
