In 2004, the NBMC was founded in the South End neighborhood of Boston, beginning right here at the BCA. Since that time the council has grown, producing projects and reflecting on bitterness in its literal and symbolic form internationally. Gather with NBMC founding members Andi Sutton (joining from Boston, MA) and Hiroko Kikuchi (joining from Tokyo, Japan) to discuss bitterness and how you can use it as a rallying tool (or culinary contribution) in your community. Find out where the NBMC has come from and where it is going. Bring your bitterness and they’ll bring their Bitter Melon.
