Across the Dinner Table

Dumplings. Sausage. Ice cream. Food is a universal language shared amongst cultures and generations. Join us as we venture through these stories of community, heartbreak, nostalgia, and conflict between people – all with food on the table. Come hungry and leave with hearts full. — Kevin J. Nguyen
