Feed Me A Story: Carmelo’s Sorullitos

We are posting a weekly video installment from “Feed Me a Story,” the project created by multimedia artists Theresa Loong and Laura Nova that was featured last month here. It’s part of the  FABLES Public Art project produced by FABnyc which kicked off in May.

Here is number four in our countdown of eight recipes. The Feed Me A Story team writes: “Carmelo Lopez shares his recipe for sorullitos and tells us stories about Puerto Rico in the latest highlight from our Feed Me a Story series. Visit the billboard at First Street Green Art Park on Second Avenue and Houston Street.”

Along with a giant mural (at First Street Green Park) made up of photos of the eight different family dishes they selected from seniors on the Lower East Side,  the project includes videos of the residents preparing the dishes and sharing their personal histories. The featured recipes include meals made by Jewish, Italian, Chinese and Puerto Rican families based in the neighborhood.
