Senator Espaillat's Flan Plan for Peace
State Senator Adriano Espaillat is putting forward a plan to create a community relations council in Northern Manhattan. The council would provide an opportunity for residents to discuss neighborhood tensions and quality of life issues that divide them - over local cuisine.
The idea stems from Inwood resident Rachel Figueroa-Levin's food blog (posted in both english and spanish) which presents recipes from members of the community as a means to bring people together through a common love of food. Be sure to check out Sen. Espaillat's family recipe for pinapple flan!
