Damira Inatullaeva

The League of Kitchens, NYC

For the second dinner in our collaborative series with the League of Kitchens, we’re transporting guests to Uzbekistan for a celebratory halal feast exploring the country’s fragrant and eclectic cuisine. Chef/instructor Damira Inatullaeva will bring a taste of LoK’s signature workshops, imbuing the Beard House kitchen with the same openness and intimacy she offers when teaching classes in her own home.
