This event has been canceled.

MEZALAND is a transformative dining event during which a diverse group of compassionate, community-focused individuals will participate in a non-choreographed performance of free flowing story-sharing and healthy conversation while enjoying an enlightening, healthy culinary experience where “vegetables are the star of the plate.”


This event is full. The drawing for tickets has concluded.

About the Chef

Chef Alexa Joan is a Buffalo-born creative entrepreneur, visual artist, jewelry designer, and trained chef, who is an alumna of both City Honors High School and Canisius College, with a degree in the culinary arts from Erie Community College. She is an adjunct professor at ECC and an independent cooking and demonstration class instructor, as well as a private and personal chef. Chef Alexa uses her knowledge and experience to encourage healthier eating habits and relies on her creativity to break down the average person’s apprehensions about introducing alternative solutions into their diets.

As a part of the meal preparation for Mezaland, Chef Alexa will collaborate with other chefs and food-based organizations, creating meaningful conversation and contact in the kitchen, mirroring the activity and synergy that will happen at the table.
