MEZALAND is a transformative dining event during which a diverse group of compassionate, community-focused individuals will participate in a non-choreographed performance of free flowing story-sharing and healthy conversation while enjoying an enlightening, healthy culinary experience where “vegetables are the star of the plate.”
While this event is free, seating is limited and spaces will be assigned by a random drawing. Please register to enter; limited to one entry per person. Each winner will receive two tickets to the event. Winners will be contacted on March 2, 2020.

She is an adjunct professor at ECC and an independent cooking and demonstration class instructor, as well as a private and personal chef.

Open House Events
This event is presented on the occasion of Open House: Domestic Thresholds by Heather Hart, Edra Soto, and Rodney Taylor, which features projects that explore how people build connections to others both inside and outside the walls of those structures we call home.
