Community Lunches at Sphere
Marielle here. It's time for our next Community Lunch at Sphere. I'm so proud to share with you what I've got cookin' for this week!
I'm excited to take you to a flavorful trip to South America via some amazing empanadas from Wooden Table Baking & Co! These savory (and sometimes sweet) turnovers are a staple of Argentina and many countries in Latin America. If you've never had the pleasure of trying their empanadas (and incredible Alfajores), then your palette is in for a ride!
Incredibly, I was introduced to Wooden Table Baking & Co. by our very own Sphere member, Ginger Daniel. I was chatting with Ginger when she mentioned that her evening plans included queer tango dancing. (Ask her about it. She's a fantastic dancer!) Ginger is part of a group that just happens to have a passion for tango and food!
As we were chatting, I mentioned that I recently read a fantastic article about a queer Argentinian baker that makes tremendous meals at their home and how I would love to attend one of them and Ginger said: "That is my friend Andreas and they are the owner of Wooden Table!".
Sharing this story reminds me so much of how EVERYTHING is connected. Which is why when we do our community lunches, every vendor we select, we seek with intention but most of all as a way to connect us in community.
Thanks to Ginger's introduction, Andreas will be sharing their food with our Sphere family and friends on this Thursday, July 11th, at noon. We will have a variety of empanadas (including vegetarian options) with a refreshing summer salad. The meal will include three empanadas and a side serving of salad for $10.
But that's not all.
Our Wellness & Fitness Director, Heather, has orchestrated a fantastic pop-up with Two Chicks in the Mix for the same day from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM! These two amazing bakers are bringing an assortment of whole pies and slices for Sphere members to purchase. Gluten-free options will be available too.
So don’t eat too many empanadas and save some room for the delicious pies of Two Chicks in the Mix!
