Let's take a trip to Ethiopia...sort of.
The Harvard Club is hosting a special evening to explore Ethiopian culture, traditions and cuisine. We will take our trip on Monday, March 27 at 6:00pm and our destination will be Lalibela Restaurant in New Haven. Our hosts will be authentically Ethiopian and authentically Harvard! Our cuisine will be provided by our hosts and Lalibela owners, Shilmat & Wub Tessema, parents of current Harvard freshman, Mikael Tessema. Our education and entertainment for the evening will come from Charlie Sutton, AB '62. What a fun evening!
We will enjoy a full dinner, including appetizer, selection of main courses, dessert, coffee & tea. Cost of your Ethiopian trip is $40, plus any alcoholic drinks you wish.
About Lalibela: Lalibela Restaurant in downtown New Haven, has served the finest Ethiopian cuisine in Connecticut since 1999. Ethiopian cuisine is based on an exotic blend of spices both robust and subtle. A part of each entree is the traditional bread called injera. Entrees are eaten by breaking off a small piece of injera, placing it on the stew of your choice and pinching your fingers together to pick up the amount of food you desire.
From the New York Times: "Perhaps it's the hominess of the cuisine, or the ritual of eating with you hands, but the pleasure of sharing these simply prepared, tasty dishes makes Lalibela a love place for a casual get-together." Read the entire NY Times Review.
