FusionFest Announces New Diversitastic! Dining Experiences
The series aims to support local restaurants and showcase artists while providing unique cultural dining experiences.
Orange County, Fla. – The Diversitastic! Dining experiences, which offer an evening’s immersion into the tastes, sounds, and fascinating cultures of the world, announces the first four experiences of 2022 will be celebrating Punjab-India, South Africa, Korea and Poland. Guests may participate in these monthly outings to a locally-owned ethnic restaurant by purchasing a ticket that includes a full-course meal along with live entertainment, chef talk, and insights into the culture being highlighted.
The private event also serves as a much-needed social outlet. “We have fun as a group learning and sharing a meal together,” says Terry Olson of Orange County’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs.
The January event, on Friday, January 28, at Curry Mantra Indian Cuisine in the I-Drive area, will offer a buffet of nearly a dozen Indian dishes, both Bollywood and folk dances, henna art, turban wrapping, and other cultural knowledge about the Northern state of Punjab.
Tickets are available at www.FusionFest.org/dining and must be purchased in advance. Space is limited depending on the restaurant.
