REFUGEE FOOD FESTIVAL STRASBOURG

Strasbourg has already hosted three editions of the Refugee Food Festival. Since 2016 the city of Strasbourg hosts the Refugee Food Festival twice a year: in December on the occasion of the Christmas market, and in June, on the occasion of World Refugee Day.

Since 2016, the festival has brought together 6 restaurants in Strasbourg and 7 talented chefs, to help change our perception on refugee status, and to make people discover flavors from elsewhere.

In 2019, the Refugee Food Festival in Strasbourg is coming back next June, with a yummazing program ! Stay tuned !

Strasbourg 2018 : one edition in June and one on the Christmas market !

In June 2018, for the third consecutive year, some of our favorite Strasbourg restaurant’s menu was enriched with dishes imagined and prepared by refugee chefs: carte blanche, four-handed menus … A greedy and supportive initiative to honor the skills of the guest chefs and to show people the best of Syrian, Afghan, Iraqi and other cuisine.

The festival was also organized on the Strasbourg Christmas market, with a 100% women edition! During one week, two Georgian and Syrian chefs made their wonderful specialities !
