Eatonville Restaurant Launches “Food and Folklore” Series with Zora Neale Hurston this Friday
Zora Neale Hurston was a gifted story teller and folklorist in both oral and written traditions. Eatonville Restaurant -- named for the writer’s childhood home where the she collected the main ingredients for her stories, plays, and novels -- pays additional homage to Hurston the raconteur with “Food and Folklore,” a new monthly series of dinning experiences bringing the art of the story back to the dinner table.

“Food and Folklore” is wrapped in the spirit of Zora’s brand of hospitality – a generosity with food. Or as Harlem Renaissance writer/artist Richard Bruce Nugent recalled “not just food, but anything that you might be hungry for.” Each “Food and Folklore” event features a special themed prix fix menu prepared by Eatonville’s executive chef Rusty Holman.

After the main entrée, the evening winds down with dessert and informal and lively conversation with a special guest.
