Munchgration: Migrant Chefs with Stories to Tell
Date and time: Monday, September 28, 2020, 7 pm Central European Summer Time (UTC+2)
Munchgration is a virtual culinary event that aims to enhance local integration of migrant communities through gastronomy.
Food is a powerful vehicle for storytelling. Food is who we are, where we come from, how we live, and what we believe. Our biographies are condensed into dishes and bites, like memories garnishing our stories. Through the foods we consume and the foods we make–and don’t–we stake claims in our identities and stories, as if announcing to the world, “this is me and this is what I eat.”
We understand the ability of food to provide a way to talk collectively about very personal stories. When we share in communal eating and tell our stories with one another, a different space opens up for collective vulnerability and mutual understanding.
Join us to learn different stories and dishes from Syria, Turkey, Brazil, Netherlands, and Yemen! Our chefs will inspire you to start a dialogue with your neighbors and maybe cook them a dish or two!
