From jerk fried pig ears to rainbow kale salad — Dream Cafe is preparing a world of flavors

This week's Allied Media Conference will demonstrate how a food system that embodies the values of equitability, sustainability, inclusiveness, and community could look with people of color at its center.

At the heart of that is a series of pop-ups called the Dream Café that will take over Detroit's Cass Cafe for several days, which will bring together a group of local and national chefs of color. They'll take turns collaborating to produce menus offering plates like jerk fried pig ears with tamarind slaw and aioli, nopales salad with Saskatoon berry vinaigrette, beef bacon and smoked gouda frittata accompanied with a savory biscuit, and more.
