Refugee Food Festival: refugee chefs in the spotlight in Marseille kitchens

For its 7th edition, the Refugee Food Festival will take place in Marseille. From June 18 to 25, the city’s restaurateurs, including bakeries and pastry shops, will share their stoves with refugee chefs.

The festivities will take place in eight Marseilles restaurants, whose menus will be enriched with dishes co-created with chefs from around the world, for a tasty cultural journey! Thus, for 7 days, it will be possible to taste Ukrainian brioches and breads at Pain Salvator, to try a zaatar sour drink thanks to the Iraqi chef Morice Boles Marcos at the Brasserie de la Plaine or to taste Nahed Damlakhi’s 100% Syrian meal at the Goûts du Monde restaurant.

Sharing culture and fighting prejudice

The main objective of the Refugee Food Festival is to make known the cultures of the world and to break down the barrier of prejudice against refugees in France. By showcasing the culinary talents of chefs from around the world, the festival hopes to provide them with new professional opportunities and allow them to better integrate into the community. In addition to this week, internships are provided throughout the year by the Festin association, at the origin of the festival, to help them integrate into the world of work.

See you on June 18 to share moments of fraternity around a delicious meal!
