Migrateful – London’s supper club-style events led by refugees who have undergone professional chef training – has launched another series of events, taking place across the capital throughout November.

mcith_migrant.jpgExtending their cohort, chefs from Egypt, Afghanistan, Bengal and Lebanon join those who trained earlier in the year including migrants from Pakistan, Eritrea, Pakistan, Albania and Nigeria. 

Migrateful’s chefs teach their international cuisines to a group of guests in a fun and relaxed open cookery class class prior enjoying the meal together. All Migrateful chefs undergo rigorous training by qualified chefs and by teaching a class, they feel empowered through skill sharing, get to practice their English and share their story and earn some money.

Engaging with migrants struggling to access employment and who have a passion for cooking, the organisation helps rebuild their lives, enabling them to share their traditional cuisines. Chefs also share their often-tragic personal stories at these events, helping to break down cultural barriers and misconceptions.

Upcoming events include: 

– Egyptian class with Ahmed at Mercato Metropolitano, Borough – 6 Nov

– Bengali cookery class with Nahida at the Duke of Cambridge, Islington – 12 Nov
