New York EATSSApril 21, 2020
Join us for the experience of a lifetime at our Epicurean Award to Support Scholars (EATSS) – this wildly popular foodie-inspired top chef showcase is coming to New York City! Taste indigenous foods and learn about the history of America’s original cuisine through the revitalization of Native American food in today’s world.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the April 21 New York EATSS event will be rescheduled to later in the year. However, Native communities need your help more than ever.
Get ready to meet and taste delicious food from some of New York’s best chefs. Each one will share their culinary talents as they create a signature dish incorporating ingredients indigenous to the local region. During this catered event, guests will also enjoy beer and wine while sampling chef tastings. We will announce participating chefs soon!
Participating Tribal Colleges

Each recipe will feature locally sourced ingredients that are indigenous to the Northeast region. Come learn the rich history of each ingredient used at our New York EATSS event!
