Slate Valley MuseumGranville, N.Y. — The Slate Valley Museum will again host its popular Ethnic Bread and Soup Night on Friday, March 3 from 6-8pm. This evening of warm soups and breads features the flavors of cultures connected to the immigrant groups that helped drive the region’s slate industry.

Attendees will enjoy tastings of about 20 different soup recipes, plus savory and sweet breads, all donated by local and regional volunteers and businesses both in New York and Vermont.

“This event is about coming together to experience tastings of some of the ethnic recipes that continue to be a part of life for many people with ties to our region,” explains Slate Valley Museum Executive Director Sarah Kijowski.

Admission is $10. Guests will also have the option to purchase a limited-edition bowl for an additional $15. The pieces were created and donated by Slate Valley artist Victoria Whitney of North Granville Pottery Company especially for this event. There will be a very limited run available for purchase, so it’s first-come, first-served.
