The next #WoburnUnites Cultural Connections Dinner is coming up on Tuesday, May 7, 6:30-8:30 PM, featuring delicious Haitian food. The goal of the event is to build ties between Woburn's longtime residents and the newer immigrant community using food and conversation as a basis for people to learn about the different cultures represented throughout the community.

Woburn resident Nathalie Lecorps will be preparing the meal for the event. Nathalie was the chef for the inaugural "Supper Club" whereby residents cook a meal together to learn about another culture. The food was a big hit so we invited to cook for this event!

Nathalie was born and raised in Miami, Florida and recently moved to Massachusetts in August. She grew up helping her parents in their Haitian restaurant that they owned for 15+ years. Nathalie threw her passion in that restaurant helping the cooks prepare the food she loved for the community she loved. She has two sons who are enjoying the New England weather since moving.

Nathalie offers catering services under her brand "Gourmet Kreyol".
