This December, Slow Food Boston is kicking off a series exploring the food traditions of local immigrant groups. First stop: Brazil! On December 3, from 6:30-9:30pm, join Slow Food for a Brazilian Cocktail party at the Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers (MAPS), their host and partner for the event. MAPS is the state's largest immigrant assistance organization, working with Portuguese, Cape Verdean and Brazilian populations in the Boston area, Framingham and Lowell.
Enjoy a frosty caipirinha, piping hot cheese rolls and seven other delicious appetizers prepared by the Brazilian staff of MAPS. Tickets cost $20 and the proceeds will be donated to their AIDS/HIV Prevention & Education Program. You can reserve tickets here.
The MAPS offices are located at 1046 Cambridge Street in Cambridge, just off Columbia Street. Detailed driving & walking directions can be found here. Via MBTA, you can take the Red Line to Harvard Square or the Green Line to Lechmere, and then catch the #69 bus on Cambridge Street. There is street side parking available in the area.
Next up: a Vietnamese picnic in spring 2010.
