BOSTON — One hates to stereotype, but for many Armenians, food and conversation, especially talking about food, can elevate any evening.
On Friday, June 9, the Armenian Heritage Park brought together many in the community who like good food and also want to support efforts to maintain the park, at the Boston Public Market.
The market, which opened in 2015, is on Hanover Street, not far from the Heritage Park. It offers about 40 different booths featuring local meats, fish, produce, flowers and gourmet chocolates in a huge airy space. At the very end of the building is the Kitchen, which offers space for events as well as cooking demonstrations.
In a departure from the usual format of various local chefs offering a standout food from their restaurants, this time, four chefs each got about 15 minutes each to demonstrate how to make a particular specialty.
They did not disappoint.
Emcee Wendy Semonian Eppich, the publisher of the Improper Bostonian, was on hand to announce the chefs and keep time.
