      Drinks & Thinks: Kenyan Food & Sustainability with Chef Kabui

      This is our April Member Event and we're thrilled to be partnering with the NoDa Drinks & Thinks event team!  To join the Char-Meck Food Policy Council, visit our website http://www.charlottefoodpolicy.org/join.html Join us for an evening with Chef Kabui, an indigenous chef, author, urban farmer, food consultant and food activist.  What does food mean for different people? How can we envision a better food system, in which we can all access what we need and what matters to us? Charlotte’s Chef Kabui has thought a lot about these questions. His recent trip to Kenya, his homeland, highlights the potential for what he calls Afro Futuristic Conscious Cuisine. Chef Kabui’s work is driven by what he calls Permaculinary, a decolonized approach to food which takes the historical, cultural, environmental components without leaving out the issue of justice and power that underlie our food consumption. Chef Kabui devotes part of his time to promote his ideology and practices in Kenya where he has set up several sustainable farms and an upcoming Food Academy where the practices of Permaculinary will be taught. This Drinks and Thinks will definitely give you something tasty to chew on… NoDa Drinks and Thinks is a great way to stretch your thinking muscles in the comfort a neighborhood bar. The event is part of a series to help bring back the lost arts of conversation and dialogue. Salon-style discussions take place in a casual environment and promote creative thoughts and knowledge-sharing. It’s kind of like watching a really cool documentary on TV – only you’re in it. And there’s a bar!
