REFUGEE FOOD FESTIVAL BOLOGNA
For the first time in 2018, the menu of some of our favorite restaurants in Bologna has been enriched with dishes imagined and prepared by refugee cooks, for four-handed menus or tasty white cards.
The Refugee Food Festival showcases the skills of the guest chefs and offers participants the chance to feast on demanding, original and meaningful menus.
The Refugee Food Festival is coming back to Bologna next June, for the second edition!
Several restaurants of this gastronomic Italian city will welcome talented refugee chefs, for new collaborations!
Stay tuned ! More information will come soon …
In June 2018, the city of Bologna hosted the Refugee Food Festival for the first time.
Three local restaurants welcomed four refugee chef to discover flavors from Mali, Irak and Palestine.
“The reason why I decided to organise the Refugee Food Festival in Bologna, the city where I live, concerns my daily life. Every day, thanks to my work, I meet many refugees and asylum seekers who work hard to create a new life in a new country, starting from scratch. What I have learned from all of this is that, beyond any categorisation, there are people with talents, abilities and attitudes in need of emergence. And the most important thing to know is that it’s not just about “helping” the refugees! It is the common effort of a civil society that gives people the opportunity to be what they are or would like to be: artists, tailors, metalworkers, artisans… chefs!”
