NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES , November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 26th annual New York African Diaspora International Film Festival (NYADIFF) is well underway in New York City with 61 films playing from 40 countries world wide! Having started on Friday, November 23, 2018, the festival has had screenings showing in Teachers College, Columbia University and MIST Harlem. From Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 the festival will be bringing some of its films to Cinema Village in Greenwich Village, New York.

Here are the films you should look out for:

KINSHASA MAKAMBO
Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 – Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 @ 5:30pm daily
In January 2015, the President of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Joseph Kabila, sought a constitutional amendment that would allow him to be elected president for a third time.

This film documents the resulting demonstrations and follows three protagonists of the resistance. Ben, who lives in exile in New York, takes the advice of his fellow countrymen in exile and decides to join the struggle in the Congo. Jean Marie, who has just been released from prison, continues his public campaign for his country’s freedom and is persecuted by the secret service. Christian fights unperturbed in the streets of Kinshasa, even after former Prime Minister Etienne Tshisekedi, on whom the opposition had pinned their hopes, dies and the movement against Kabila’s extension of his time in office seems paralyzed.

Should one resist in exile, or fight on the ground in the Congo? Should resistance be non-violent or should force be used if required? Filmed throughout with a handheld camera that stays very close to the protagonists, even in precarious conditions, Dieudo Hamadi explores the pros and cons of different forms of resistance.

As of September 2018, general elections are scheduled to be held in the Democratic Republic of the Congo on 23 December 2018, to determine a successor to incumbent President Joseph Kabila.

(Directed by Dieudo Hamadi, 2017, France/Germany/Norway/Qatar/Switzerland, 75 minutes, documentary, French, Lingala with English subtitles.)

THE MAN WHO MENDS WOMEN
Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 – Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 @ 3:10pm daily
2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate and winner of the Sakharov Prize 2014, Doctor Denis Mukwege is internationally known as the man who has assisted thousands of women who have been sexually assaulted during the 20 years of conflicts in the East of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. However, his endless struggle to put an end to these atrocities and denounce the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators is not welcome. Threatened with death, Doctor Denis Mukwege now lives cloistered in his hospital in Bukavu. But he is no longer alone in his struggle. The women to whom he has restored physical integrity and dignity, stand beside him, true activists for peace, hungry for justice.

(Directed by Thierry Michel and Colette Braeckman, 2015, Belgium/Congo, 113min, documentary in French, English, Swahil and Mashi with English subtitles.)

NO SHADE
Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 – Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 @ 9:20pm daily
No Shade explores the hardships of the modern dating world through the dysmorphic presence of colorism as well as the fetishization of black women in a way that is tactful and honest. Jade is both effervescent and relatable as a 28 year old single woman of dark complexion who just “can’t seem to get it right,” let alone liberate herself from her unrequited love for the repressive and colorist Danny. The world through her eyes is both a quirky and tumultuous obstacle course of courtship catastrophes and heart-gripping silences. Despite Jade’s line up of Tinder flops and her challenges in the friend-zone, she is easy to engage with and adorable. Jade’s charisma, quirk, beauty, vulnerability and perseverance throughout the film make her a thoughtful heroine with a twist of comedic spunk in the end.
(Directed by Clare Anyiam-Osigwe, 2018, UK, 104 minutes, Romance/Drama, English)

TAZZEKA
Friday, Nov. 30, 2018 – Thursday, Dec. 6, 2018 @ 1:00pm daily
Growing up in the Moroccan village of Tazzeka, Elias learned the secrets of traditional Moroccan cuisine from his grandmother who raised him. Years later, meeting a top Paris chef and a young woman named Salma inspires him to leave home. In Paris, Elias faces unstable work and financial hardship as an undocumented immigrant. But he also finds friendship with Souleymane, who helps revive his passion for cooking.
(Directed by Jean Phillipe Gaud, 2018, France/Morocco, 95 minutes, French, Arabic with English subtitles)

The holidays are here, and there's no escaping the chaos that comes along with gift-giving for all of your loved ones. Or, is there?

Food delivery bundles from What a Crock make the perfect gift for Christmas.”

— Justin West

COLINGDALE, PA, UNITED STATES, November 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you're someone who hates shopping in busy malls during the holiday season, or never know what to get the person who has everything – you may be looking for a way to make gift-giving a bit easier.

Well, what if there was a way you could give the gift of a week of delectable, prepared meals – without even turning on your oven or heading to the grocery store? Sound too good to be true?

We're here to tell you that there is a way to do just that, even if you hate cooking – and it's called the What a Crock Meal Delivery Bundles.

What a Crock Bundles Makes Gift-Giving Easy

Food delivery bundles from What a Crock make the perfect gift for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, and every other special occasion – and offers an easy way to gift the foodie in your life with a delicious meal for five days of the week.

Our weekly bundles are available in thirteen different varieties, including a gluten-free option – so there's a What a Crock bundle for everyone, no matter their favorite cuisine.

And, the best part is, we can ship the meals to your recipient for you! Or, if you would rather hand deliver the bundle and are located nearby one of our four retail locations, you can stop in and pick it up. It's completely up to you to decide!

What a Crock Gourmet Meals

All of our crockpot meals are chef crafted, meaning that we only provide made-from-scratch meals with fresh ingredients and no added preservatives.

At What a Crock, we are a family-owned business, which means we understand the importance of wholesome home-cooked meals that are made with real natural ingredients.

That's why we're dedicated to crafting delicious meals for families that can be cooked right in your crockpot with little preparation time. This way, you can spend more time with your family, and less time stressing over a weeknight dinner – all without sacrificing a home-cooked meal.

How What a Crock Works

What a Crock Meals to Go makes it easy to enjoy a home-cooked meal without all the stress of shopping, chopping, seasoning, and cooking.

All of our meals are cooked fresh, using only the finest ingredients and seasoning, and then immediately frozen to ensure top quality gourmet food.

Once you receive your meals through delivery or at one of our retail locations, simply store them in your freezer until ready to use.

Then, when you are ready to cook one of your meals, all you have to do is open the bag and pour the contents of the meal into your slow cooker.

After that, all you have to do is set your slow cooker on low, and follow the cook time on your instruction card.

Once the cook time is finished, all that's left is for you and your family is to enjoy a delicious, home-cooked meal.

Yep, with What a Crock, it's that easy.

What a Crock Meals Cook Time

With our What a Crock meals, there's no guesswork involved. There's an instruction card on each meal bag, so you know exactly how much cook time is required so you can have a scrumptious dinner at the end of your hectic day.

Typically, any chicken or vegetarian meal should cook for 4-6 hours, any pork meal should cook for 6-8 hours, and any beef meal should cook for 8-12 hours. All meals should be cooked on the low setting, and you can always call us if you have any questions.

What a Crock Bundle Portions

Our weekly meals are sold by the portion – meaning we can supply a bundle for one person, or even a family of six. Not sure how many portions your gift recipient will need? We've got you covered.

From two adults with light appetites to a family of four with two big eaters, we can help you decide the portions your recipient will need.

What a Crock Bundle Delivery

At What a Crock, we handle your meals with the utmost care and put as much thought into delivering them as we do with meal preparation.

All What a Crock meals are shipped in a Styrofoam cooler with dry ice to ensure that everything stays frozen for about 12 hours after delivery. That way, you don't have to worry about your gift arriving with any problems.

Located in the Brookhaven, Chestnut Hill, Garnet Valley, or Quakertown areas? You can always stop in and pick up your meal bundle, instead.

What a Crock Makes a Unique Gift
Of course, there's nothing wrong with traditional gift-giving and the classic experience of shopping around for that perfect present for all of your loved ones.

But, if you're looking to give something a bit more personal and out-of-the-box this year, look no further.

The What a Crock meal bundles make the perfect unique holiday gift, and you can order it on our website right from the comfort of your home.

Miriam Chesner explores Latin American cuisine

Miriam Chesner

Miriam Chesner

New Jersey's Miriam Chesner delves into Latin America's distinctly varied cuisine.

MORRIS PLAINS, NEW JERSEY , USA, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Inspired by Native American, African, European, and Asian influences, Latin American cuisine is as varied as it is delicious, according to Miriam Chesner, a New York University graduate and cultural expert, as she explores food, beverages, and cooking styles common to much of Latin America.

Famed for its many maize-based dishes, Latin America is also home to some of the world's most recognizable and well-loved salsas and condiments. "The cereal grain maize is extremely prevalent in Latin America and is used in dishes such as tacos, tamales, and tortillas, as well as arepas and pupusas, all of which are instantly recognizable as regional Latin American dishes," reveals Chesner.

"The same can be said for Latin America's salsas and other condiments," she continues, "including guacamole and pico de gallo, along with chimichurri, aji, and pebre."

According to Chesner, who's a cultural expert and teacher of English as a second language, coffee is among Latin America's most popular and most widely consumed beverages. "Other popular drink options across Latin American—some of which date back to the times of the Native Americans—include hibiscus tea, atole, horchata, chicha, and aguas frescas," she adds.

"Popular desserts, meanwhile," the New Jersey native continues, "include staples such as rice pudding and flan, as well as more region-specific desserts such as dulce de leche, alfajor, and tres leches cake, all of which are particularly sweet in taste – a common signature of Latin American dessert dishes."

Of Latin America's primary culinary influences, Chesner goes on to explain that Native American inspired cuisine remains perhaps the most prevalent. "Cornbread and dishes such as arepas, humitas, papa a la huancaina, chipa guasu, and locro all have their roots in Native American cooking, thanks to abundant crops of corn, beans, and potatoes across Central and South America," she reveals. Today, these and similar dishes remain particularly common in countries such as Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, and Peru.

African influences on Latin American cuisine saw a heavier focus on meat, often highly seasoned and cooked using traditional African methods.

In contrast, ongoing influences from European countries saw a renewed focus on fruits and vegetables. "Much of the European influence on Latin American cuisine comes from Spain," Chesner points out. Portuguese and Italian influences are also evident, as are influences from France. "Furthermore," she says, "in countries such as Argentina and Uruguay, British, Russian, German, Armenian, and Israeli influences may also be found."

Lastly, Miriam Chesner touches on Asian influences. "Asian spices and cooking styles were readily accepted into Latin American cuisine," she reveals, with fusion dishes apparently proving incredibly popular. "This is particularly evident in dishes such as Peru's chifa, a combination of Cantonese and Peruvian ingredients and traditional cooking methods," she adds, wrapping up.

How Do Healthy Crock Pot Meals Provide More Benefits for Seniors?

What A Crock | Happy Crockpot Meal

What a Crock Meals To Go Logo

Senior Health can be Improved with Meals from a Crockpot

COLLINGDALE, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is something wonderful about approaching your front door, key in hand, after a long day, and catching a whiff of the inviting aroma of a home-cooked meal emanating from a distant nook of the house. Before you even take the first bite of food, the senses feast on the bounty, savoring the textures, scents, and visual appeal of the simmering foods.

Naturally, seniors enjoy the multi-sensory perks of eating at home; however, for many, it can be tiresome and difficult to acquire the ingredients that are needed to create a home-cooked masterpiece, and then to prepare the foods by chopping and cutting before the actual cooking takes place.

Crockpot creations can be a good solution for many. For one, crock pot meals usually require much less prep time and involve fewer steps; therefore, seniors who tire easily or have issues with mobility encounter fewer dilemmas. Secondly, leftovers, which are a frequent occurrence with this type of meal, help seniors reserve even more energy and defer the costs and transportation requirements involved with grocery shopping.

The following are five easy, healthy crockpot meals that we like for seniors:

Slow-Cooker, Apple Cinnamon, Steel-Cut Oatmeal

High in fiber and complex carbohydrates, steel cut oats are quite beneficial to seniors, reducing cholesterol and blood pressure while also preventing heart disease. This delicious meal is plentiful, and when made for one or two people can provide generous servings for several days.

Visit The Yummy Life for the full recipe.

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

This warm, scrumptious comfort food is perfect for the adult who knows he should eat his veggies but doesn't want to taste them. Dripping with savory sauces, the vegetables add texture to this meal, but do not overtake the flavor. Served with a warm dinner roll or biscuit, this is sure to please even the most finicky eater.

Visit Creme de la Crumb for the recipe.

Mac and 3-Cheese

Everyone's favorite comfort food is bursting with flavor when served creamy and cheesy. As a side dish or as an entree, this variation will fill you with goodness.

Slow Cooker Tortellini Chicken Noodle Soup

Smooth and healthy, this recipe is just what the doctor ordered when you start feeling the droopy effects of a winter cold. Equally beneficial to he that is fit as a fiddle, this filling twist on a classic chicken noodle soup recipe will not disappoint.

View the full recipe at The Recipe Critic.

Classic Slow-Cooker Meatloaf

Are the kids coming to visit? This classic slow cooker meatloaf will satisfy the oldest and youngest of your guests and is pleasingly fragrant while cooking. This filling, flavorful favorite is a good option when entertaining.

See the recipe at Betty Crocker.

Baked Ziti

This traditional dish of pasta, red sauce and cheese comes to life in the crockpot creation that will tempt your taste buds.

Georgia Peach Cobbler

Sweet and delicious, this extraordinary dessert is simple to make in a crockpot, and topped with ice cream, is the perfect ending to a day any time of the year.

Slow-Cooker Burrito Bowl

Are you a vegetarian? Good news! There are many vegetarian options when it comes to slow-cooking, and this is one of the best crock-pot meals out there. Bursting with flavor, these burrito bowls include brown rice, black beans, peppers, onions, tomatoes and a variety of fresh spices.

Junior’s gone vegan, Aunt Sue's gluten-free, & Grandma’s off dairy. What’s a Thanksgiving hostess to do?

Discover New Recipes, Tips, and Techniques to Serve Up
Maximum Yum with Minimum Fuss from Kosher.com

NEW YORK, NY – NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Junior’s gone vegan, Aunt Suzie’s gluten-free, Grandma’s off dairy, and Grandpa’s watching carbs. What’s a Thanksgiving hostess to do?

As people become more and more aware of what they’re eating these days, it seems like everyone’s customizing their food preferences. Some are interested in how certain ingredients affect their health and well-being. Others are looking at labels – organic, preservative-free, non-GMO, etc. – for a “clean” lifestyle.

Kosher.com, the go-to online community for quality kosher cooking and conversation, recommends keeping an assortment of dishes in your Thanksgiving arsenal. You want a feast that has enough variety to satisfy each guest. Some might pass on certain dishes, but everyone should enjoy a balanced meal.

When planning your menu, think in terms of a core menu that most guests will enjoy, and include at least one alternative appetizer, entrée, side, and dessert to accommodate those with restricted culinary preferences.
Of course, there are many “one size fits all” dishes that will make your omnivores just as happy as the more selective eaters. Here are some to consider.

For Starters, try a Caramelized Pumpkin Salad, a picture-perfect fall salad that is meatless and gluten-free. The hearty Roasted Sweet Potato and Apple Soup is a low-carb, low-fat, vegan harvest in a bowl.

Main Courses: Paleo-friendly Chestnut Chicken is a snap to prepare (6 ingredients, 2 steps!). If turkey is a must for Turkey Day, why not change things up with robust, gluten-free Turkey Goulash? And for a vegan entrée, start this low-fat, gluten-free Curried Chickpea Stew in the morning and then let your slow-cooker do the rest.

Sides are the key to a memorable Thanksgiving spread, and this Easy Gluten-Free Cornbread is something everyone will be thankful for. Serve it straight up or use it in a good-for-you stuffing. (Hint: make it dairy-free – just swap out the milk for unsweetened almond milk.) Irresistible Hasselback Candied Sweet Potatoes get high marks for originality and pretty much everything else: they’re vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, low carb, and low fat! Same with this simple paleo-friendly, 4-ingredient Fruit-Filled Squash.

“No dessert, please,” said no one ever. Kosher.com to the rescue for the nondairy crowd! Chocolate Chestnut Trifle is actually 3 desserts in one, as the rich chocolate cake and chestnut cream components can stand on their own. But it’s a cinch to assemble, so go ahead and wow them with a decadent masterpiece. For the “it’s not Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie” set, this Flourless Pumpkin Pie (complete with whipped topping) is a gluten-free, dairy-free no-brainer.
Drinks: Every great meal deserves a toast. Let Kosher.com’s video channel introduce you to five fabulous autumn cocktails and show you how to be a master mixologists. Or take a tip from wine expert and blogger Gabriel Geller, who knows all about Wines You Should Serve with Turkey.

The next day: Overnight guests are the perfect excuse to whip up a batch of Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Buns for breakfast. And finally…did somebody say leftovers? Check out Danielle Renov’s brilliant Leftover Hack video – you’ll never look at eggrolls the same way again.

Meal Kit Delivery Company Set to Grow in Success After Factory Location Opening

What a Crock Meals To Go Logo

What a Crock Meals to Go™, a rapid growth startup, is opening a state of the art food production facility.

The new space is allowing business to boom.”

— Justin West, WAC Founder

COLLINGDALE, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, November 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

What a Crock Meals to Go™, a meal kit delivery company is opening a state of the art food production facility in mid-November in Collingdale, PA. The 10,000 square foot facility is opening after just four years of the company’s launch.

What a Crock is a rapid growth startup that was self-financed by a young couple out of Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Since opening their door in late September 2014, the company has seen extreme growth both in the retail sector and online sales. The company has grown from a 1 shop mom and pop startup to a 6 location chain with a strong e-commerce presence that accounts for about 70% of the companies revenue.

“We are so thankful for the success our company has had and overwhelmed with the support we have received,” says Justin West, company founder.

With such rapid growth, the company’s largest obstacle has been space. Up until now, What a Crock has been operating out of a 2,000 square foot building that is bursting at the seams. With such high demand in orders and limited space, the company was forced to slow down their expansion until their new facility became operational.

The company’s new facility is roughly 10,000 square feet with ample storage and production space. The added space is allowing the company to go from a small player in the foodservice industry to a full-on force to be reckoned with to the larger better-known companies.

“The new space is allowing business to boom,” West said. “We are so happy with the success rate it has already proven so far!”

What a Crock plans to carve out its share of the pie by marketing its strengths over the larger companies. The largest differentiator is the fact that they are able to offer the “home cooked experience” with none of the work.

Traditional food service companies ship their customers all the ingredients they need to make a gourmet home-cooked meal, but the customer still has to prep, trim, cook, and serve the dish. When you order What a Crock, the customer simply places already prepared ingredients into the slow cooker and allows the crockpot to do the rest of the work.

It is a very simple, hands-off process that can save the customer time and stress of chopping, measuring, and cooking the meal themselves. This is incredibly beneficial for busy families with working parents that would rather save time cooking and use it to spend time with their loved ones.

This may be your first time hearing about What a Crock, but by the look of things, it will certainly not be your last.
