Journey to Egypt: Discovering Identity Through Food
Mira Zaki is a New York City–based food, travel, and documentary photographer. Raised in an Egyptian American family and educated at the Brooks Institute of Photography, she brings a rich, multicultural perspective to her work. In this series of images, she explores her identity through Egyptian food. The project will culminate with a memoir.
Tickets to events held at the James Beard House cover the cost of food and a unique dining experience. Dinners are prepared by culinary masters from all regions of the United States and around the world. All alcoholic beverages are provided on a complimentary basis and are not included in the ticket price.
Located in the reception space where guests mingle and meet before meals, the Greenhouse Gallery exhibits the works of up-and-coming and established artists who work with culinary themes. Providing artists with a complimentary space to show their work not only enhances the overall ambience of the room during events, it’s also in keeping with the Foundation’s mission to celebrate, preserve, and nurture America’s culinary heritage and diversity. Past exhibits have featured mouthwatering food photography, romantic watercolors of mealtime still lifes, and exuberant mixed-media collages.
