REFUGEE FOOD FESTIVAL GENEVA

Geneva will host the Refugee Food Festival for the second time, from June 12 to 21, in partnership with Hospice général

In 2017, a very first edition brought together five restaurants and five talented chefs.

This year, the Refugee Food Festival is back with nine restaurants and one food truck who will entrust their kitchens to ten refugee chefs to help change perception of refugees, foster their professional integration and gather people from all walks of life by creating convivial moments around the dinner table.

Geneva 2019 • From June 12 to 21

For ten days, Genevan restaurants’ menus will display dishes from Algeria, Eritrea, Iraq, Sri Lanka or Syria, for one or more services. Through four-handed menus or carte blanche, the guest chefs will prepare the best dishes of their home-country in collaboration with the restaurants’ chefs. Discover a range of gourmet events that highlight the skills of refugee chefs and the specificities of their cuisine.
