Fifth Mulit-Culti Night at Sag Harbor Elementary School Draws a Crowd

The Sag Harbor Elementary School held its fifth annual Multi-Culti Night recently to celebrate the varied heritage of its students and eat some really good food. Past nights have been big successes, galvanized by the many serious cooks in the community and the strong craving for rare, ethnic eats on the South Fork. Last year the event even inspired a cookbook that Edible was proud to design and co-publish: an essential documentation of what Sag Harbor families have in their cooking heritage. 

Families brought dishes, decorations and traditional dress from their home countries–from Colombia to Ireland to Sweden and India. Bag pipers played, Japanese drummers drummed and Mexican dancers spun until way past bedtime. Our Lindsay Morris was there to capture the moments.
