The National Museum of the American Latino partnered with Well Dunn to unveil their first exhibition to inaugurate the Molina Family Latino Gallery. The reception took place at the National Museum of American History highlighting the exhibition’s theme: Latino History is American History.
Well Dunn took guests on a culinary journey while perusing the exhibitions. Our Caribbean fusion station included a chili roasted halibut, curried golden lentil meatballs, and braised pork cheek atop Puerto Rican black rice. Other displays featured a variety of ceviches, brightly colored mezcal and tequila cocktails, as well as a taco wall with gloved hands passing a variety of “new world” tacos to guests in branded bags.
The star of the evening was Well Dunn’s nod to immigrant traditions: the Molina Heritage buffet. Guests were encouraged to write and post their favorite family recipes while sampling dishes passed down in the Molina family and faithfully recreated by our kitchen. The event ended on a sweet note with a classic Piragua cart, churro stand, and Cuban style café con leche.
