World Cuisine @ Living Traditions

The annual Living Traditions Festival is a three day orgy of great music, crafts, performances and more. But the main attraction for me is the wide expanse of world cuisine. --- This year's Living Traditions food market is made up of 20 different nonprofit groups offering a diverse, multicultural array of ethnic foods from around the world. 

For the volunteer cooks, family and community members who prepare and sell the food, the food market provides an opportunity to gather and share their most delectable food traditions with festival attendees.  

Culinary temptations range the gamut from Indian tacos, Filipino adobo and  Laotian satay to Salvadoran pupusas, Tibetan momos, Sudanese chicken sheia, Bosnian cevapcici and Basque churros. 

Food booth hours are Friday, 5-10 pm; Saturday, noon-10 pm; Sunday, noon-7 pm.

The food market lineup for the 2011 Living Traditions Festival is as follows:
