On Wednesday, August 7, 2019, at Zingerman’s Miss Kim restaurant, in Ann Arbor, acclaimed indigenous food activist and winner of two James Beard awards, Chef Sean Sherman will share both history, wisdom and foods directly from The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen cookbook for a select, ticketed group of diners.

Rooted in his passionate quest to rekindle and restore stolen traditions and preserve them in the present day, Chef Sean will educate and enlighten our  hearts and palates. Diners will be graced with new translations of seasonal dishes by Chef Sean made with ingredients locally sourced in collaboration with Miss Kim’s Chef Ji Hye. The spirit of Chef Sean's book joyfully reinforces Chef Ji Hye's own integration of Korean food roots and ancestral traditions in her Michigan kitchen and she joins our community's warm welcome of Chef Sean Sherman. The result is a rare and intimate evening with one of the most inspired social, political and culinary change agents of our time who is blazing a timely trail to honor and value tradition’s sacred connection to the fundamental human experience of community, land and food. See what you'll be having!
