Conflict Kitchen London brings peace and harmony to the table for their series of events launching today. As part of the Talking Peace Festival, which celebrates the power of words to resolve conflicts, the food-loving collective will be hosting weekly meals and discussions from countries that have experienced violence. Chefs from Burma, the Middle East and Peru will be cooking up culinary delights from their home countries over the three-week period.
Held in Monikers restaurant in east London, the event will be opened by Burmese-born Debbie Riehl on September 11-13. Next up, Jordanian Batool Rasheed takes the reins (17-20), handing it over to Peruvian Marlith Tenazoa Del Aguila for the final stint (24-27). Tying in nicely with International Day of Peace on Sunday September 21, Conflict Kitchen will be transported to the Queen of Hoxton for a Middle Eastern rooftop grill where recipes from Yotam Ottolenghi, Anissa Helou and Claudia Roden have been donated. It’s time to break bread.
