Barbecue Across Cultures: UAE’s Mattar Farm and the DMV’s Bark BBQ
It’s cookout season! Join us for a demonstration and discussion of cross-cultural barbecue. Hattem Mattar, a Texas-trained pitmaster and proprietor of Mattar Farm in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, will talk with 2018 Folklife Festival alum Berj Ghazarian of Bark BBQ, based in Baltimore, Maryland, about third-culture cuisine, the passion for Central Texas brisket, and how the chefs are building community around the table.
The conversation will be moderated by award-winning culinary historian Adrian Miller.
