A warm welcome spiked with hot chili peppers was on the menu yesterday afternoon as two master chefs visited the International Rescue Committee’s New Roots farm at Drew Gardens in the Bronx.
Michel Nischan snaps a picture to share on Twitter as Marco Canora and Ah Lun check out a bounty of vegetables grown by refugee farmers.
