Wazwan is a practice that originated in Kashmir, a mountainous region shared by India and Pakistan. It was established with the goal to destroy the caste and social system that existed at the time. It didn’t matter who you were, what religion you followed, or which walk of life you came from. The point was to be able to share a meal together as just a human.
With multiple courses offered in one seating, the meal is meant to enamor the guest showcasing local seasonal ingredients. Tasting menus are not a modern invention, and they don’t have to be only for the affluent. Wazwan Supper Club aims to extend the idea of a traditional wazwan by bringing people together, showcasing cuisines from different parts of the world and respecting the seasonal availability of ingredients.
In the spirit of Wazwan, a portion of the proceeds of every supper club will directly finance a monthly meal that feeds the guests of St. Teresa in Lincoln Park. Additionally we will be sourcing fresh produce for distribution at food pantries in multiple Chicago neighborhoods to individuals and families in need.
Join us, we look forward to having you as our guest.
