REFUGEE FOOD FESTIVAL ATHENS – Αθήνα
Athens has already hosted two editions of the Refugee Food Festival.
In 2017 and 2018, the event brought together ten restaurants and nine talented refugee chefs, to change our perceptions around the welcoming of refugees and their status, and of course, to make people discover flavors from elsewhere.
Athens & Lesbos – Αθήνα & Λέσβος, 2018
Local restaurants in Athens opened their kitchens to refugee chefs for a unique culinary experience. Through set menus or carte blanche, the guest chefs prepared their best culinary creations from their country of origin.
In 2018, the Refugee Food Festival was organised by volunteers with the support of Food Sweet Food (the founding NGO) and UNHCR local offices, the UN Refugee Agency. In Athens, the festival was made possible by the commitment, enthusiasm and energy of the Athens Insider team !
