"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
DALY CITY– This fall, the Daly City Library launches Taste of the Top of the Hill, a community culinary gathering. Taste of the Top of the Hill will bring together Daly City’s diverse restaurants for food-tasting events that illuminate the immigrant experience – through food! The in-library food tours will consist of tabling events inside the John Daly Library; patrons will browse the tables, taste the food and learn how foods reflect the diversity of Daly City’s immigrant communities. They will, for example, taste and learn about delicious Peruvian empanadas and savory Cantonese egg rolls from the restauranteurs! These foods will serve as a bridge to and between cultures in our city. And we’ve provided maps of our community to guide patrons in their own explorations.
Taste of the Top of the Hill
Wednesday, October 11 5pm – 6pm

All events take place at John Daly Library, 134 Hillside Blvd., Daly City, CA 94063
