I speak about culture, heritage, food, and other topics at the crossroads of culture, identity, and ideas. I'll work with you to create a presentation, event, or educational workshop that uses food and cultural heritage to tell stories, to teach, to facilitate conversations about identity and belonging, to foster empathy and connection, and to explore and celebrate traditions and stories of generations past.


" Emily was an organized, thoughtful, and engaging moderator. We really enjoyed working with her and having her at our event!"
