Traditional cooking techniques in action


Three expert chefs, who are also refugees and/or asylum seekers, will demonstrate how to prepare national dishes from Bangladesh, Iran and Egypt. There'll also be a public talk, giving participants the chance to ask questions.

Cooking workshops will happen in groups of up to ten, with everyone gathering to eat together at the end of the night. Tickets are $30 and can be purchased online in advance.
