REFUGEE FOOD FESTIVAL CAPE TOWN
In 2019, Cape Town will host again the Refugee Food Festival for a second edition!
In 2018, the festival in Cape Town brought together 8 restaurants and 13 chefs in the city, to change our perceptions around the welcoming of refugees and their status, and of course, to make people discover flavors from elsewhere.
This is the beginning of a great adventure: collaborations between chefs gave wonderful dishes !
In 2019, this second edition in Cape Town will offer a delicious program, from the neighborhood canteen to the gourmet restaurant!

Cape Town 2018
For the 3rd edition of the Refugee Food Festival, Cape Town joined the list of cities whose restaurants welcomed refugee chefs for a few days, for delicious culinary collaborations!
From June 16th to 26th, no less than 13 chefs worked with eight restaurants to give South Africans a taste of Ethiopian, Angolan, Congolese, Palestinian, Bangladeshi, Somalian and Rwandan flavours.
Cindy Helfer, Jacob Berget and their team lead the organisation of the festival from A to Z! In Cape Town, the organisation of the Refugee Food Festival was made possible thanks to the commitment, enthusiasm and energy of these two ambassadors, their wonderful team and UNHCR South Africa!
