CAPE TOWN 2018

June 16th-26th

For the 3rd edition of the Refugee Food Festival, Cape Town joins the list of cities whose restaurants will welcome refugee chefs for a few days, for delicious culinary collaborations!

From June 16th to 26th, the menus of several restaurants in Cape Town (and around the world) will be enriched with dishes imagined and prepared by refugee cooks. These menus can be the result of four-handed collaborations or cartes blanches given to the invited chefs!

The Refugee Food Festival aims to highlight the guest chefs’ talents and give participants the opportunity to enjoy the most demanding, original and meaningful food.
