Exploring the Arkansas Delta: Tamales & BBQ

with Chef Gilbert Alaquinez of the lab food truck

Sponsors: Arkansas Rice Federation and Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas

Dinner: $60 per person ($50 for museum members) • Dinner + Delta Hot Tamale Book: $80 per person ($70 for museum members)

2020 History is Served explores cultures, communities, and cuisine of the Arkansas Delta.  We’re kicking off our series by serving up a modern take on iconic dishes from the Delta—hot tamales and barbeque— as an entrée into Black entrepreneurship, generational transfer, and food heritage.

The four-course dinners will be picked up curbside at the museum between 4 and 6 pm. Then, there will be a virtual Zoom program with author Dr. Jessica B. Harris, 2020 James Beard Lifetime Achievement Award winner, and Anne Martin, author of Delta Hot Tamales: History, Stories, and Recipes, that can be viewed that night or at a later time.

Purchase a copy of Delta Hot Tamales with your dinner ticket, or purchase a dinner ticket only.

Tickets go on sale June 22 at 1 pm, online only here.
